Bio-based reusable packaging and return systems for take-away food and beverage – step 1

The project ran between November 2021 and August 2022.

The project has shown that comprehensive industry cooperation is required, to replace many of today’s single-use plastic packaging for take away food and beverage with bio-based multi-use packaging. Moreover, the entire industry benefits from return systems, which significantly improves environmental performance compared to today’s system which leads to littering and a large negative carbon footprint. The project hopes to continue to collaborate with new actors in the next step, who can add both knowledge and performance to the future return system.
