Flower food manufacturer Chrysal launched the first liquid flower food package made from recyclable plastic.
The company’s new Recyclable Liquid sachet is made from polypropylene, which is a fully recyclable plastic and contributes to a circular economy. The benefits of recycling waste are enormous. Recycling means saving raw materials, energy and water. The Recyclable Liquid sachet contains Chrysal Universal flower food, which the company says, helps keep flowers beautiful for up to 60 per cent longer. Retailers and consumers value liquid flower food.
Introducing the Recyclable Liquid Sachet is part of Chrysal’s ambition to be the most sustainable partner in the flower industry. Chrysal is on the road to making its products and packaging more sustainable. Peter Vriends, CEO of Chrysal, says, “Our goal is to improve the sustainability of our products and packaging and to contribute to our sustainability goals and those of our customers. We are looking at all our packaging, and one of the steps we are taking is introducing a Recyclable Liquid sachet. In 2025 we want all our packaging to be either recyclable, compostable or re-usable.”
Chrysal continues to progress on solutions to reduce its footprint, contribute to a circular economy and make the chain more sustainable to contribute to a better world. By using Chrysal products, flower wastage is significantly lowered, less water is used, and packaging materials are reduced.
The Chrysal Recyclable Liquid sachet made its debut at IPM in Essen, Germany.
