British Crisp Co's eco-friendly aluminium-lined packaging solutions redefine sustainability


Amidst mounting concerns over packaging waste, unveiling the recyclable paper packet signifies a pivotal moment in the quest for eco-friendly alternatives. This innovative solution uses a thin aluminium liner to mitigate the environmental repercussions of non-recyclable packaging.

Led by CEO Tom Lock, The British Crisp Co. stands at the forefront of sustainable innovation, cognizant of the pressing need to address packaging waste.

The CEO clarified: "Brits consume over eight billion packets of crisps each year, the majority of which are not recyclable and end up in landfills or incinerators – that's a lot of waste and a huge environmental problem."

"In partnership with Evopak and using exciting new polymer technology, we have created the first fully recyclable crisp packet – something that consumers have been demanding for a long time," he added.

Sustainability incursion: Redefining packaging paradigms

In today's conscientious consumer landscape, sustainability reigns supreme as a non-negotiable imperative. The proliferation of non-recyclable packaging threatens ecological equilibrium, necessitating proactive measures to curb waste accumulation and foster a circular economy ethos.

Aluminium's role in elevating environmental stewardship

Central to this transformative endeavour is the integration of aluminium, a stalwart ally in the pursuit of sustainability. Beyond its innate strength and durability, aluminium offers unparalleled recyclability, ensuring minimal ecological footprint throughout its lifecycle.

Innovative polymer technology: A sustainable invention

Aquapak's pioneering Hydropol powers the paper packet and encapsulates the essence of sustainable ingenuity. With its recyclable, re-pulpable, and compostable attributes, Hydropol epitomises the convergence of functionality and environmental stewardship.

As the inaugural fully recyclable crisp packet enters the market, it symbolises a triumph of collaborative innovation and environmental consciousness. By harnessing the transformative potential of aluminium and cutting-edge polymer technology, this alliance sets a precedent for sustainable packaging paradigms.
