Is dissolvable packaging the future?

Dissolvable packaging is designed to replace conventional plastic bags, films, labels, and pouches. This end-of-life solution is non-toxic and leaves no trace of microplastics. Upstream innovation means this packaging 'designs out' the waste often associated with plastic bags, and also means consumers are not forced to deal with finding a solution to plastic waste. Use our Foresights report to understand the future of dissolvable packaging, and formulate winning strategies for the road ahead. This report covers:
  • Drawbacks and advantages to dissolvable packaging
  • Current industry applications
  • Consumer insight into priorities surrounding sustainability and packaging
  • The pathway and considerations for dissolvable packing in terms of mass adoption and commercialization

The company has signed up to the 2025 UK Plastics Pact and aligned its long-term targets with the initiative, which involves businesses across the entire plastics value chain with a common vision to create a circular economy for plastics.

With a three-point reduce, recycle, sustain strategy, the company is focused on supply-chain collaboration and education to promote the positive role played by everyday packaging.

As part of its commitment to the UK Plastics Pact, Coveris, similar to other signatories, will work towards eliminating unnecessary disposable packaging through redesign, innovation or alternative models.

“We now need to broaden our long-term sustainable outlook to focus more on the end-of-life function of our products.”

By signing up to the pact, the company has also pledged to make all of its plastic packaging reusable, recyclable or compostable, 70% of plastic packaging effectively recycled or composted.

The signatories are also required to ensure 30% average recycled content across all plastic packaging.

Coveris UK president Gary Rehwinkel said: “Over recent years, Coveris has worked strategically with retailers and manufacturers to drive down food waste across the supply-chain and improve the functionality of packaging.

“We now need to broaden our long-term sustainable outlook to focus more on the end-of-life function of our products to support a circular-economy and ensure our recyclable products are, in fact, recycled.”
