Berry Global has revealed that it will rebrand Plasgran as Berry Circular Polymers.

The Cambridgeshire-based company was acquired by Berry Global in 2018.

According to Berry Global, this new name for Plasgran will help reflect its leadership in developing circular polymers. By 2030, it is aiming to achieve 30% circular plastic use across its fast-moving consumer goods packaging.

Plasgran was established in 1999 and is a recycler of rigid plastics. It is due to open a new facility in Leamington Spa later this year that will use Berry’s CleanStream technology to turn post-consumer PP back into food-grade packaging.

This technology was recently granted a Letter of No Objection from the US Food & Drug Administration to confirm that post-consumer recycled PP produced by the process can be used in levels up to 100% content for food contact applications.

Berry Circular Polymers managing director Jeremy Blake said: “The launch of Berry Circular Polymers brings together our advanced rigid plastics recycling facilities.

“Our technical expertise and experience will enable us to deliver recycled material of high quality and consistency to support our customers’ drive for sustainable solutions.”

Across UK and Europe, Berry Global currently processes 200,000 tonnes of plastics annually.
