Leading the change

The European Union is restricting the use of single-use plastics in food packaging by means of the relevant directives. This regulatory change is in line with consumer trends that have been favouring more sustainable products for some time now.

At Hinojosa, we’ve spent years analysing this trend, which is now a reality, and we’ve made great progress in the development of sustainable packaging systems as an alternative to single-use plastic. The result is our heat-sealable punnets for fruit and vegetables, an innovative registered system that is already present in large-scale distribution.

Is it possible to replace the traditional punnets used for berries, cherry tomatoes, grapes, made of single-use plastics? Of course it is.

Heat-sealable cardboard punnets are one of the best and most sustainable alternatives to the traditional plastic basket for fruit and vegetables. Clearly, they are classified as 100% recyclable, but this is not the only functional advantage that this packaging has both for the consumer and for the brands committed to its development.
