Sealed Air leads industry with food-grade film made using recycled plastic

Sealed Air has developed the world’s first food-grade soft plastic film containing Certified Circular Resins (CCR), as it continues to strive towards creating 100% recyclable or reusable packaging solutions by 2025.

The new CRYOVAC® Brand rBDF™ S10 Film is made using up to 30% food-grade CCR, which is certified by the International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC). The independent organisation is a global leader in accrediting materials and processes for the circular economy.

Along with its market-leading levels of recycled plastic content, CRYOVAC® Brand rBDF™ S10 Film helps food companies to further improve sustainability through its ultra-thin barrier. At 21 microns, this is a third lighter than widely used HFFS packs and three times thinner than other thermoformable films.

The high gloss finish and transparent clarity of CRYOVAC® Brand rBDF™ S10 Film help enhance the appearance of food to drive sales and reduce waste. Leak-proof closures, hermetic sealing and a protective barrier further minimise waste by safeguarding food integrity and extending shelf-life.

CRYOVAC® Brand rBDF™ S10 Film can be used to wrap foods with or without trays. The overwrap film with modified atmosphere is ideal for fresh red meat, poultry, fish, smoked and processed meat, cheese, convenience food and ready meals.

In 2018, Sealed Air announced a bold sustainability and plastics pledge to design and advance their innovative packaging solutions to be 100% recyclable or reusable packaging solutions by 2025.
