Key characteristics for PP



Protective and safe food packaging

Safety in food packaging is extremely important, and quality packaging is key to keeping your food to go product fresh, appealing and safe. Our food to go packaging made from PP protects the integrity of your food product at temperatures ranging from -20°C to 121°C, providing freezer-to-microwave convenience. PP keeps your food to go safe from physical damage and spoilage, and it guarantees that the flavour of your product is not affected. This helps to prolong the shelf life of your product, making your packaging part of the solution to reduce food waste.

Faerch food to go products made from PP comply with the strictest regulations on food safety. They meet the highest standards according to Regulation (EU) No 10/2011. No such specific regulation exists for non-plastic materials, only the softer Regulation (EC) No 1935/2004 is typically applied with certain practical limitations on how to prove food safety.



In contrast to APET, which allows for true circularity, PP is made from 100% virgin material. However, PP trays are fully recyclable in contrast to packaging not made from a mono-material. PP, which is recycled from food applications, represents an important source of material for supplying other durable applications, such as in the automotive industry, and for applications such as child safety seats, bike helmets, garden furniture, and pipes. In the PP recycling chain, food applications represent the first step necessarily requiring 100% virgin material. PP is typically promoted by waste managers and legislators due to its excellent recycling capability and volume.
