British flexible packaging leader Parkside has partnered with Compleat Food Group and Sainsburys to mark the coronation of King Charles III, with a special edition pack of sausage rolls, featuring sustainable, fully recyclable packaging.
A fitting tribute given the King’s famed history of environmentalism, the new solution is fully recyclable under OPRL guidelines thanks to Parkside’s patented ParkScribe™ technology. This innovative system cuts a self-adhesive peel-and-reseal opening into the PE lidding film which is then weld-sealed to a matching PE tray. This facilitates easy recycling and dramatically lowers the post-use environmental impact of each pack.
Staci Bye, Business Unit Manager at Parkside welcomed the launch of the limited edition packs, which can currently be found on shelves at the UK’s second-largest supermarket chain Sainsbury’s, saying: “Everyone at Parkside is immensely proud to have played our part in this historic moment for the country. This packaging shows what is possible when you align with our Sustainable 7 principles and apply a little innovation.
“Our expertise and industry-leading technology meant that, when Compleat came to us with a project that required a very quick turnaround, we were able to deliver successful results.”
Alexandra Maudsley, Group Artwork and Project Manager at Compleat Food Group, was thrilled with the end results. “The sustainable requirements and very short lead time of this project meant it could have been a challenging one, but given our past relationship with Parkside, we felt comfortable the team could deliver what we needed,” said Alexandra.
“Thank you to every member of the team at Parkside who supported this project – their expertise and passion for sustainable packaging was invaluable.”
Parkside developed the pack in line with its Sustainable 7 – the seven pillars of sustainability that uphold every packaging project it undertakes. As a result, it offers significant benefits beyond recyclability, including a lightweighted PE film that helps reduce material consumption and transport costs.
