Tri-Star Packaging has expanded its stackable pot range with the addition of the 100% recyclable Spartan pot.  

The new Spartan pots are made from 85% premium high-clarity UK-sourced recycled PET (rPET) – made almost completely from recycled plastic bottles.

The crystal-clear rPET material offers on-shelf product visibility. The more sustainable rPET material is made from plastic that has already been used, and has been sorted, cleaned and transformed for reuse instead of going to waste.

This food-to-go option meets the surging demand for eco-packaging from both foodservice operators and consumers. It is also lighter in weight than other options and therefore boasts a lower carbon footprint; and it is manufactured using renewable energy, at a facility less than 70 miles from Tri-Star’s main hub at Enfield, cutting carbon mileage and shrinking the product's carbon footprint even more.

In another development, the new product is heat-sealable and is available with different lidding options, which can eliminate leakage, promote longer shelf-life and reduce expensive waste. Spartan is also suited for branding or marketing promotions, subject to volume.

With a clip-in mini spoon lid option, Spartan pots are spot-on for the unique and multiple needs of eat-on-the-go operators such as delis and food stalls. They are perfect pots for pasta, salad, olives, fruit pieces, muesli and a variety of other options along with speciality foods such as ethnic cuisine, rice and noodles. 

The sizes of the two pots are 290ml and 410ml, available with a spork fitment lid and a plain lid, ideal for dips, tasters and dressings.
