Lucozade Ribena Suntory are seeking alternative materials, technologies, processes to eliminate, replace or reduce the non-recyclable plastic used to wrap pallets (tertiary packaging). We welcome early-stage ideas or mature solutions to improve the sustainability or reduce the environmental impact of pallet wrap.
Currently, Lucazade Ribena Suntory (LRS) wraps each pallet around 25+ times with a non-recycleable plastic before it is shipped. This uses a significant amount of non-recycleable plastic.
We are seeking ways to reduce or replace the plastic wrapping to improve the sustainability and/or reduce the environmental impact of materials used to wrap pallets (tertiary packaging) and ensure our products transit safely.
Key success Criteria
Materials, Technologies, Processes which:
Eliminate or replace these materials
Reduce the amount of these materials needed
Improve the sustainability or reduce the environmental impact of pallet wrap
Lucozade Ribena Suntory is open to:
All possible approaches that meet the success criteria
Early stage ideas and solutions that are more mature
