KCC Eco Friendly Food Packaging


KCC has been working on riji® for a decade. Now, development meets opportunity. In addition to its eco-credentials of being recyclable, home-compostable and biodegradable, riji out-performs current ready meal packaging. Made of natural plant fibres, the product, which may be moulded to your specification such as tray, cup or bowl, remains rigid at high temperatures. It has a global food migration certificate, which is approved by EU and FDA standards. The totally natural trays, cups, bowls etc., are coated with a biodegradable material which stops them leaking when filled with wet foods such as ready meals, soups and so on. When the customer heats the chilled or frozen pack at home, it stays rigid and can be disposed of through composting.
