sonoco_VegetopGlobal packaging products and services provider Sonoco has entered a strategic partnership with French manufacturer of bioplastic Vegeplast to launch a new suite of recyclable containers.

The new Vegetop containers are produced from recycled paper and feature a tough paperboard base.

Sonoco sales manager Sébastien Fabre was quoted by Packagingnews as saying: “We can now offer our customers a rigid paperboard container that sets new standards in environmental friendliness.

“The Vegetop cap and our containers offer a perfect combination. The body of the container is recyclable and the plastic lid is 100% compostable.”

The container also features a compostable shaker top made of Vegemat, a biodegradable plastic, in accordance with the European standard EN 13432.

Sonoco Consumer Products Europe director of sales and marketing Rolf Regelmann said: “Today’s consumers place increasing importance on environmentally-friendly packaging.

“The rigid paperboard containers with Vegetop meet these expectations without compromising on visual appeal. Our Vegetop containers stand out at the point of sale and are extremely convenient for consumers thanks to the practical shaker top.”

The containers can be used to store dietary supplements and food products such as cereals, sugar, spices, and flour, semolina and dried fruit.

According to Sonoco, the first customers have already been selling dietary supplements, spices and other products in the new containers, while others are currently in the implementation stage.
