Being a thermoformed packaging expert, Avoncourt is producing a comprehensive range of high quality food grade packaging for Bakery, Salads, shelf ready trays and non-food applications. The most commonly used material is rPET, which is functional, durable and made with a large proportion of PCR material.

When the decision to move into extrusion was made in 2016, the main driver was
flexibility to produce in-house and a strong commercial pay-back. Over the
space of 18 months, the focus shifted towards being able to offer a more
sustainable material with higher PCW content and fully recyclable in turn.
We chose viscotec as our partner as it would enable us to be able to offer
100% recycled food grade material to our customers with a consistent quality
as well as meeting our commercial targets. The line was installed in December
2018 and with a strong training plan, the line was meeting Avoncourts expectations
within a very short period of time. The material has proved very popular
with our customers who are under increasingly under pressure to justify
the continued use of plastic packaging in their products.
