Mars pioneers recycled PP pet food packs in SABIC and Huhtamaki partnership

Mars is collaborating with SABIC and Huhtamaki to integrate food-grade recycled polypropylene (rPP) in some of its pet food packaging in 2021, following a successful pilot this year.

Huhtamaki is using SABIC’s circular Trucircle resins to extrude PP films, creating the sealing layer. From there, the films are laminated to other materials to form the final retort pouch laminate for Mars pet food packaging.

The move accelerates Mars’ progress toward achieving 30 percent recycled content and 25 percent less virgin plastic in its product portfolio by 2025.
