Pact Group and ALDI Australia form recycled packaging partnership

Sustainability

Pact Group, a leading plastic recycler and sustainable packaging manufacturer, announces new recycled packaging partnership with ALDI Australia.

Pact will supply recycled plastic packaging for ALDI's own brand products.

The partnership offers more sustainable packaging options for items like milk bottles, meat trays, fruit and vegetable punnets, beverage bottles, and shampoo bottles.

Packaging manufacturing will take place in Pact's facilities across New South Wales, Victoria, and Queensland, using recycled PET and HDPE plastic resins.

Both companies share sustainability goals: Pact aims to eliminate non-recyclable packaging and achieve 30% recycled content by 2025, while ALDI commits to reducing plastic packaging by 25% and incorporating 30% recycled content by 2025.

Pact invests over $76 million in new packaging manufacturing equipment to produce high-quality recycled packaging products.

Pact expands plastic recycling capabilities through joint ventures, including the Circular Plastics Australia (PET) recycling plant in Albury, NSW, and a new PET recycling plant in Melbourne.

A mixed plastics recycling facility in Melbourne, in partnership with Cleanaway, will process about 20,000 tonnes of mixed plastic waste annually.

The partnership drives sustainable packaging and contributes to a circular economy.
