Glossary of Packaging Terms

Glossary of Packaging Terms

If you’ve been reading about how our new coffee pouches came to be, you might find some terms and phrases overly technical. 

So, here’s a list (definitely not an exhaustive one) of a few terms in case you’re curious to learn more. 

  • LDPE  

Noted for its low temperature flexibility, toughness and property of corrosion resistance, low-density polyethylene (LDPE) is one of the easiest plastics to work with, when recycling. LDPE is a soft, flexible and lightweight plastic material best suited for food packaging at the moment.   

  • PET 

Polyethylene Terephthalate, commonly known as PET, refers to a transparent, durable, lightweight plastic. Unlike some plastics, PET is not limited to single use. It is entirely recyclable, adaptable, and designed for multiple life cycles. 

  • FSSAI 

Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) is a government-regulated body that establishes science-based standards for food products and oversees their production, storage, distribution, sale, and import.  

  • Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) 

Extended Producers Responsibility (EPR) was implemented under the Plastic Waste Management Rules, 2016, and it states that it is the responsibility of producers, importers and brand-owners to ensure processing of their plastic packaging waste through recycling, re-use or end of life disposal. 

Landbell GreenForest Solutions is a joint venture of two global majors in EPR, Recyclability and Plastic Waste Management. They operate more than 30 Producer Responsibility Organizations (PRO’s) across the world, working with global brands to fulfil their EPR obligations for packaging waste and also advise them on strategies to increase recyclability of their packaging material.
