We believe and promote the following “R”s within our company:

  • REDUCE – through use of new and innovative materials, we are able to provide solutions using LESS packaging materials without compromising performance. E.g. 40-50% material reduction using our boneguard shrink bags and lidding film

    120um + 60um = 180um

  • RECYCLE – our new MAP trays are also recyclable as it is made using mono blend materials without lamination layer and hence can enter recycle stream directly.


    Traditional case ready trays require an extra    plastic layer bonded to the tray to provide      high barrier AND act as sealing layer with         lidding film.

    IPE's new tray solution offers 7 days shelf life (e.g. poultry and seafood), and100% recyclable tray used in combination with our lidding film

  • REUSE – all our waste materials are sold off and reused by other manufacturer to make lower grade plastic products (e.g. wheels, rubber parts)
