Foodgrade and flexiblity without compromise. viscotec's decontamination technology exceeds highest food grade standards like ESFA and FDA.
As a result of the business relationship with Starlinger, the product portfolio now includes manufacturing PP as well as the production of recycled PET packaging trays for the food industry. Working closely with their customers, EstPak has been able to develop a unique container to suit their clients’ requirements. With those properties the Estonian company has developed themselves to one of the leading PP and rPET specialists in the Scandinavian market.
Forecasts point out that especially recycled PET will be a main resource for thermoformed food trays in the years to come. According to this trend in the packaging industry, the organization is perfectly fit for the future, as those materials will dominate the thermoforming business in the upcoming years. In 2015, EstPak reached a further development stage with the installation of their new advanced production plant in Harjumaa, where the company employs around 40 people. The production capacity amounts to 145 million trays with an export rate to the Scandinavian market of approximately 80 %.
It was important for EstPak to esablish a plant for the production of rPET sheet which ist safe to get in direct food contact. EstPak found their partner in viscotec and since the opening of the new production premises in February 2018, EstPak has now the capability of producing sheet with the highest degree of purity. It also opens up new possibilities for the Estonian company to offer rPET monolayer or laminated sheet to the thermoforming or Form-Fill-Seal market.
