Global plastic packaging manufacturer Berry Global has been chosen to provide two distinct freezer-safe packaging solutions for Gat Foods, a global fruit-oriented solutions provider.

The packaging solutions will be used for Gat Foods’ premium fruit juice concentrates range.

Gat required containers in two sizes – a 21-litre container for the B2B market, as well as a 280ml option for use in the regular consumer market.

Berry provided its 21-litre SuperCube container and 280ml customised container from its UniPak range to help meet these requirements.

The containers were able to meet the requirements of Gat via the packaging’s ability to maintain the products’ integrity throughout the supply chain.

Gat purchasing director Miriam Vider said: “The freezer safety of packaging for our frozen fruit juice concentrate is naturally extremely important.

“Previously, we experienced cracks, particularly in the lids and during transportation. Naturally, this resulted in claims and wasted produce. To address this issue, we set out to find a packaging partner capable of guaranteeing freezer safety for our frozen juice concentrates.”

In a separate development, Berry has collaborated with Deaconess Midtown Hospital and Nexus Circular to launch a new initiative to safely recycle non-hazardous, sterile plastic packaging and non-woven fabric from Deaconess’ Surgical Center.

The effort will help in recycling approximately 500lbs, which is equivalent to 350 bags, of clean and used plastics from the hospital’s surgical, pharmaceutical, laboratory, and warehouse suites every week.

The effort also covers the recycling of exterior protective packaging from various surgical tools that are removed before surgery, as well as unused non-woven surgical cloths and gowns.

As part of the joint effort, mixed streams of used, sterile healthcare plastics are collected from the hospital and sent to Evansville Packaging Systems (EPS).

EPS is responsible for auditing and evaluating the received waste streams via plastic separation, and validating that the received material is non-hazardous. The segregated plastic material is then transported to Nexus Circular.

Nexus will then use pyrolysis-based advanced recycling technology to revert the waste plastic back into its molecular building blocks so that it is fit to be reused in new materials.
