Foodservice packaging: the pandemic, changing perceptions and future progress in association with kp

So how has the covid-19 pandemic impacted foodservice packaging? Are companies still committed to reducing disposables, improving recyclability and using recycled rather than virgin polymers? Do consumers still care about plastic pollution? Have safety fears really derailed progress on reusable models? And is there still the political will to press for the ambitious reforms set out in the government’s resources and waste strategy for England?

Through discussions with around 20 industry experts, think tanks, consultants, academics and campaigners, as well as an exclusive consumer survey, this report, produced by Footprint Intelligence in association with Klöckner Pentaplast (kp), provides some of the answers.
