What is Faerch?
Circular food packaging
At Faerch, a sustainability focus is integrated into every aspect of our business: from high-level decisions to day-to-day activities. Creating circularity in food packaging is reflected in our work, strategic focus and targets. This approach is nothing new to us. Acting responsibly and keeping our sustainability footprint in mind is at the heart of everything we do. Our priorities, corporate strategy and daily operations have reflected this focus for years. To reduce our impact on society and the environment, we set ambitious targets and integrate circularity into our entire value chain. From the materials that go into our food trays to our energy consumption.
As the world’s first supplier of food trays with integrated recycling capability, we have taken the lead in making food packaging truly circular.
Food trays made from recycled content
We lead the market with the post-consumer recycled content in our PET trays.
Recyclable food trays
Our PET trays can be fully recycled into new food grade products of the same quality, in an endless number of cycles.
Quality means everything. We never compromise on food safety or any other functional property.
Tray-to-tray recycling is already happening on an industrial scale at Faerch today. Our recycling facility in the Netherlands is the only one in the world capable of taking in used food trays from collectors, sorters and customers from across Europe and recycle them back into new food grade material.
Less food waste, lower CO2 footprint
In this rapidly changing market environment, decisions about food packaging have become very challenging. Retailers, brand owners and packaging suppliers need to work together to solve the challenges facing the industry. Sustainability in food packaging is not limited to the packaging material itself, it also reflects the resulting waste and carbon footprint.
Did you know that global food waste accounts for 4.4 gigatonnes of greenhouse gas emissions per year? If food waste was a country, it would be the third largest emitter in the world. Food packaging plays an important role in protecting products and consumers, as well as reducing food waste. At Faerch, we are constantly innovating and strive to deliver packaging products that extend product shelf life and reduce food waste.
We serve food manufacturers and retailers around the world with our network of state-of-the-art production facilities across Europe and the US: Denmark, France, Italy, Poland, Spain, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Israel, the US and the Czech Republic.
