Certified transparency


Recycled content levels in Faerch food packaging certified by third party auditor

Using post-consumer recycled content (PCR) in food packaging is good for the environment, appreciated by consumers and supported by taxation.

Full transparency on the amount of post-consumer recycled content used in food packaging is crucial. It allows taking the right material choice, complying with legislative requirements, communicating accurately to avoid confusing consumers.

We apply the strictest calculation standards and provide our customers with certification on the level of recycled post-consumer content  in our packaging audited by third party.

As the world’s first integrated tray recycler, we manufacture PET food containers with market-leading amounts of post-consumer recycled content, which we recycle back into new food packaging at industrial scale. We believe that full transparency on post-consumer recycled content in food packaging is the key driver to accelerate the required transition towards circularity.

We process pots, tubs, and trays from
all across Europe with a capacity of 1,2 billion
post-consumer recycled mono-PET trays per year.





Definition of post-consumer recycled content according to (ISO 14021:2016): “Material generated by households or by commercial, industrial and institutional facilities in their role as end users of the product, which can no longer be used for its intended purpose. This includes returns of material from the distribution chain.”
