Greiner Packaging produces more than just practical packaging solutions. Starting on July 3, 2021, it will be illegal to place disposable plastic cutlery on the market in the European Union. However, we are ensuring that there will still be an easy, user-friendly way to consume convenience and to-go products on the spot thanks to our innovative, fold-out cardboard spoons.
The fold-out spoons can be fitted right inside the lids of packaging solutions for dairy, deli, or specialty products. The lids themselves can be made of r-PET, providing a fully sustainable solution when paired with the cardboard spoons.
For non-EU markets, Greiner Packaging will continue to produce PP and PS cutlery if desired, starting at a certain minimum order quantity.
Greiner Packaging does not offer legal advice. Instead, it assesses the impact of legislation on the markets in which it operates. This document therefore reflects our current state of knowledge.
