Pizza Discs Corrugated

ALTERNATIVE TO POLYSTYRENE

Read how we converted over 250 Million pizza discs from polystyrene to corrugated

The Challenge
Historically, most industrial pizza producers and retailers who prepare fresh pizzas in-store or for the chilled aisle were using non-recyclable, non-biodegradable polystyrene discs as a base for their pizzas. In a world where plastic pollution is such a huge problem, Smurfit Kappa wanted to help them to develop a food safe, 100% recyclable and biodegradable alternative.

Our Approach
We worked with a number of customers to develop pizza discs made from corrugated, solid board or folding carton. These paper-based pizza disc provided an environmentally friendly alternative to polystyrene as they are 100% recyclable and biodegradable and are made from a renewable resource. With the application of a food grade barrier coating, the discs can be custom printed with brand and marketing messages.
