By adhering to stringent sustainability criteria, this certification not only bolsters consumer confidence but also significantly diminishes environmental impact.
In a statement, Five Star technical director, sustainability Milagro Marroquin said: “Polytex’s ISCC PLUS certification marks a significant milestone in our pursuit of a circular economy. This certification empowers Polytex to align with our customers’ sustainability objectives, offering flexible packaging solutions with certified advanced recycling materials.”
Advancing recycling practices
Polytex, championing 100% recyclable material structures, manufactures packages such as pouches for snacks and pet treats, as well as laminated woven sacks for pet food.
These can be collected and recycled within existing infrastructures, including at Fresh Pak, Five Star’s recycling operation in Houston, Texas.
The ISCC PLUS certification further enables Polytex to augment the utilisation of post-consumer recycled material.
Vice-president of marketing and sustainability Tonya Pullen emphasised: “Our adoption of the ISCC PLUS certification system is a testament to our commitment to sustainability and responsible sourcing.”
Pullen added: “By implementing rigorous traceability and sustainability standards, we are proud to offer our customers and partners the assurance they need when it comes to using high levels of recycled materials in their products.”
