Live Nation UK collaborates for compostable foodservice packaging

Business

BioPak has announced a collaboration with Live Nation UK to provide compostable packaging for all traders and crew caterers at its UK festivals and outdoor concerts this summer.

This initiative supports Green Nation, Live Nation’s global sustainability arm, which aims to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50% by 2030 and phase out single-use plastics. Under this commitment, all items used must be reusable, renewable, certified compostable, or made from at least 30% recycled content.

Through this collaboration, traders and crew caterers will receive a discount on certified compostable foodservice packaging at Live Nation UK and Festival Republic events between May and August 2024.

BioPak technical director, Sam Walker, said: This alliance further cements BioPak’s position in the sustainable food packaging industry as the preferred supplier. The deal will give the confidence to Live Nation, Festival Republic and all traders and crew caterers that the food packaging at their events meets the stringent policies helping the operators reduce the environmental impact of live events.

Currently, all food and beverage items at Live Nation’s events are served in compostable and recyclable packaging. Dedicated sustainability teams work with professional waste management companies to ensure materials are donated, recycled, or composted at local facilities.
