Presenting the 'FiloServe' paperboard packaging innovation by ITC, the third and final component of the Filo series of sustainable packaging solutions! This is a product that is increasingly being used to develop eco-friendly serving applications. Check out our stories on the FiloBev and FiloPack, other recyclable, food grade products from the sustainable Filo range, here and here.
FiloServe is designed to be adapted into serve ware, like plates, trays and food liners, as a replacement to single use plastics currently in use. The paperboard is coated with a special barrier that gives excellent oil and grease resistant properties. FiloServe is 100% recyclable and can be recycled in existing standard recycling systems. It comes with a superior surface finish and uniform coating and is compatible with cold and hot melt glue.
As Indian food packagers and marketers, especially quick service restaurants, begin to explore sustainable packaging materials, the FiloServe product provides a plastic free packaging option to potentially replace single use plastics.
With the Filo series, ITC is contributing significantly to plastic substitution efforts in the Indian food industry. The FiloServe base board is made with wood fibres from sustainably managed plantations that ensure a steady, renewable supply of pulpwood for the Paperboards Business. The green value chain also opens up livelihoods for thousands of marginal farmers who manage those plantations.
