Sustainable, flexible packaging company Parkside, Normanton, UK, has been shortlisted for two Flexographic Industry Association UK’s (FIAUK) awards for its environmentally friendly products.
The company’s paper, recyclable flexible packing for frozen food created for Iceland’s Northcoast range of frozen seafood has been selected in the technical innovation category. The packaging represents the first successful application of paper flexible packaging on frozen seafood, according to the company.
Parkside is also shortlisted for packaging collaboration with sustainable food brand Riverford Organics, which enabled the company to move away from conventional plastic-based packaging.
Riverford has now switched all its packaging to flexible paper recyclable and compostable pulp punnets for soft fruits and mushrooms.
