In 2017, Orkla participated in the Future Pack research project, which seeks to develop new expertise and technology to make future plastic packaging more eco-friendly, with a higher proportion of bio-based and recycled plastics.
Another focus of the project is product recycling. By participating in Future Pack, we at Orkla want to build up expertise on how we can reduce our dependency on plastic in the future and move plastic into a circular economy. The project has a time frame of four years and is financed by the Research Council of Norway and participating companies. It was initiated by the non-profit company Grønt Punkt Norge AS and is headed by Norner Research AS.
