Reducing plastic use by 50% by 2025
Picadeli have 2 300 salad bars throughout Europe and the USA. Their concept are self-serving salad bars where the consumers pick and mixes their own salads. From the start they used plastic bowls and plastic lids.
With a growing focus on sustainability, Picadeli set themselves a target to reduce their plastic use by 50% by 2025. Because of this, they wanted to replace all plastic used in their take-away packaging.
The bowl was changed to a cardboard bowl a few years back, leaving the next challenge for Picadeli: Replacing the plastic lid.
Enter, formed fiber
“These types of lids only existed for drinking cups but not in bigger sizes. We had to develop a brand-new product that no one had done before."
The new formed fiber lid, as other Stora Enso PureFiber™ products for take-away food, is plastic-free, recyclable as paper, biodegradable and free from PFAS and other forever chemicals.
