Envision Plastics Flagship Product, EcoPrime®, Can Now Be Used in Packaging for Fatty Foods and Spirits

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.
