Berry Supports RECOUP’s Plastics Recycling Message

Berry Global’s European recycling business is the headline sponsor of this year’s RECOUP Plastics Resource and Recycling Conference, which will take place on 28th September in Peterborough, UK.

RECOUP is a leading authority on the plastics recycling value chain, dedicated to securing sustainable, circular, and practical solutions for plastics resources both in the UK and worldwide. The RECOUP conference attracts around 500 delegates from all parts of the value chain, including companies, NGOs, and local and national government bodies, to network and share best practices.

For Berry, sponsorship of the event underlines the company’s ongoing commitment to drive sustainability throughout its operations and developing appropriate product solutions to help its customers meet and exceed their sustainability goals.

Berry’s own recycling operations play a critical role in the business, allowing it to develop a more sustainable and circular approach to product design. By recycling plastic waste, Berry reduces reliance on virgin materials and external sources of recycled resin, enabling the company to better control the quality of recyclate produced. Berry’s robust chain of custody methodology allows it to confirm recycled content claims directly, meeting the growing market demand for sustainable products while providing customers with assurance that films comply with current legislation.

“The continual development of plastics recycling and resource management will be critical to cementing the material’s role in the circular economy,” commented Mike Baxter, External Affairs Director for Berry Global.

“RECOUP makes a fundamental and wide-ranging contribution to this - covering everything from the introduction of waste reduction, recycling initiatives, and technical support to education, training, and the proactive promotion of the many benefits of recycled plastics. We are therefore delighted to support the Conference, which we know attendees will find stimulating and informative.”

Berry will also be showcasing several of its own products at the event, including Entour®, a recyclable PE lamination film, Collation Shrink Film with up to 50% recycled content, and Bontite®, an exceptionally strong and versatile stretch wrap from Berry’s range of pallet stabilisation solutions that offers downgauging possibilities and the option to include recycled materials. Each product demonstrates the company’s technical expertise in developing sustainable solutions that deliver high levels of technical performance and remain fit for purpose.

The RECOUP Plastics Resource and Recycling Conference takes place at the Kingsgate Conference Centre, Peterborough. As in 2022, this year’s event will be in a hybrid format.
