Nampak has got the whole world in its hands

Plastic packaging manufacturer Nampak has won the WorldStar Sustainability Award in recognition of extraordinary achievements in sustainable packaging.

The company, which claimed to have created the worlds first recycled HDPE milk bottle, picked up the award at the World Packaging Organisation [international federation of national packaging institutes] at a ceremony held in Ghana.

The milk bottle project was developed through collaboration between Dairy Crest, Marks & Spencer, Nampak, a plastic consulting company Nextek, and the Waste & Resources Action Programme.

Nampak business development director James Crick said: Winning the WorldStar Sustainability Award is a fantastic accolade for this project. The challenge for all those involved in packaging is to develop products that meet the environmental demands of the modern marketplace, while still remaining fit for purpose. The recycled content HDPE bottle is the ideal solution; optimising packaging without compromising consumers needs.
