Responsible and committed
Food is critical to life and a source of great joy and pleasure. Packaging ensures it is delivered safely and will not be wasted. We see it as our responsibility to produce the best fit-for-purpose packaging to protect and serve food. Choosing the right materials, using them in an optimal way and considering the end of life and recycling possibilities all play a part in developing more sustainable packaging solutions.
From sustainably managed forests
With the right packaging choices, the environmental impacts of making safe food accessible to the world’s growing population can be reduced. The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC) sets standards to transform the way forests are managed, to help all enjoy the benefits that forests offer. At Huhtamaki UK, our paperboard is sourced from sustainably managed forestry.
Sustainable packaging solutions
By combining our packaging knowledge and our renewable, recyclable and compostable material base, we are able to cater to a variety of needs for environmentally optimal packaging manufactured right here in the UK.
How and where to recycle your paper cups
Whether you are a business or foodservice operator, or a consumer who enjoys a coffee on the go, it is easier than ever to get your cup recycled in the UK.
Packaging innovation for sustainability
Huhtamaki has been the pioneer in introducing new innovations and using sustainable materials for making food packaging products.
Huhtamaki Future Smart cups are the first 100% renewable paper cups made from plants in Europe. The 100% renewable plant based materials used in Future Smart products contain no carbon content older than 100 years as verified by the 14C carbon dating method. Future Smart paper cups are 100% GMO free and made of paperboard from PEFC certified renewable sources.
We believe that the value of packaging is more than its impact on the planet and that we can make a difference in the food system value chain in several ways. We aim to minimize the negative impacts of our operations and products on the environment while maximizing the positive impacts on our stakeholders, consumers and society.
