Members of Irish Food Packaging Alliance

Alert Packaging is a member of The Irish Food Packaging Alliance (IFPA), the representative organisation for the domestic food packaging producers in Ireland. The IFPA is committed to the development of a truly circular economy whereby all plastic products are recycled.

Our members believe in developing a commercial waste stream for all plastic packaging & therefore creating a sustainable approach to reducing the climate impact of plastic waste.

Sustainable Packaging Options

We work in partnership with our customers to down gauge film specifications where possible. For example we regularly use metallocene polyethylene which is a much stronger / tougher film reducing the amount of film required. We also offer a range of sustainable packaging options including; 30% Recycled Content films, Paper, PE & PP film specifications.
