Top moisture-absorber for mushroom and all pre-packed produce
Hydrozorb (H-PET) is a new packaging material with altered characteristics perfectly designed to reduce surface tension and capture condensation in pre-packed produce such as mushrooms offering improved shelf-life over standard r-PET.
In testing H-PET absorbed 625%* more moisture than PP
In testing H-PET absorbed 625% more moisture than PP a standard packaging material for mushrooms. With it environmental credentials H-PET also offers positive aesthetic, commercial and environmental advantages as an alternative to polystyrene diverting from landfill.

Stability issues are addresserd with improved weight-to-strength ratio for top loading more resistant at lighter weights for over-wrapped products such as mushrooms.
The lightweight, low carbon material with organic and inorganic fillers is 100% recyclable in the waste stream, due to its composition - a strategically blended combination of r-PET with fillers.
The beauty of texture
It has a texture that is touch-irresistible
This year Waddington Europe also took the top award at the Worldstar event in the Food Packaging Category for their rPETeCO material
