Envision Plastics is excited to announce that the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a letter of no objection regarding the suitability of Envision’s flagship product, EcoPrime®, when used at levels up to 100% in HDPE packaging for fatty foods and spirits under FDA’s Conditions of Use A through H. The FDA letter makes EcoPrime® the only post-consumer recycled HDPE resin for which FDA has granted a favorable review for use in packaging all food types up to retort temperature conditions.
EcoPrime® is one of the only recycled and recyclable HDPE resins specifically manufactured for direct food contact at levels up to 100%. The FDA’s letter concludes that EcoPrime® may be used in the packaging of any food product, providing brand owners a recycled and recyclable solution for all their food packaging needs. EcoPrime® can be readily integrated into existing manufacturing processes for the packaging of food and beverages, as well as for beauty, cosmetic, and personal care products, while immediately elevating a brand’s integrity of its packaging and product.
Tamsin Ettefagh, Vice President of Sales & Procurement for Envision Plastics said, “I am thrilled at the opportunities the FDA’s letter of no objection provides, extending the use of this innovative product into new markets. Made from U.S. sourced recycled food packaging, integrating EcoPrime® not only provides your end consumers the products they love, but within packaging they can feel good about.”
