HKScan to scrap black plastic packaging in Sweden and Finland
HKScan said the Mamma Scans meatballs packaging, which has been developed in Sweden, helps in reducing the use of plastics by 30 tons per annum. The company’s consumer brand Rose has launched new packaging with transparent and recycled plastic in Denmark. The plastic buckets are replaced with easy-to-carry bags to use for chicken, pork sashliks and marinated meat in Baltics, enabling to decrease the use of plastic by around 70%. HKScan will launch two new minced meat novelties this February in the Finnish market. The recyclable cardboard packaging will be used for novelties. In Sweden, HKScan is following the vision of Swedish Food Retailers’ Federation, which aims to make plastic packaging into recyclable by 2022 and all plastic packaging must be produced from renewable or recycled raw materials by 2030.
