KALAMAZOO, Mich., May 25, 2011 – Fabri-Kal, a leading provider of disposable foodservice packaging, has announced that its line of Alūr™ crystal-clear containers is now made with 50% postconsumer recycled (PCR) plastic PET bottles. Alūr™ containers provide merchandisers with an ecofriendly option designed to increase product sales. 50% PCR messaging is engraved on the bottom of every Alūr™ container, helping merchandisers tell their customers they care about the environment.

Alūr™ containers are engineered to be crystal-clear, durable and leak-resistant. All containers and lids are custom printable for merchandise branding opportunities. The American-made line consists of six
popular sizes ranging from five to thirty-two ounces. One common plug fit lid seals the five most common containers. Alūr™ round deli containers are made from 50% post-consumer recycled water and soda plastic PET bottles. Alūr™ containers strengthen the sustainability loop by incorporating plastics that have collected in commercial and residential recycling programs. More recycled content means less refuse going into our waste stream and less need to tap virgin raw materials to produce consumer goods. The containers comply entirely with FDA requirements for food contact. Alūr™ containers are made locally in the Unites States which further demonstrates the company’s pledge to sustainability and strong commitment to community.
