AviAFCO, the sustainable packaging for cool meat of birds
The past 30 July went in in force the new Law of Waste and Floors Contaminated, that transpone to the Spanish legislation the Directive Mark of European Waste. According to the legislative text, sustainable packaging is that that is manufactured with a prime matter that fulfils with three requirements: be renewable, recyclable and biodegradable. To require it still more, enumerate the materials considered sustainable: the paper, the cardboard ondulado, the compact cardboard and the wood.
AFCO, the Spanish Association of Manufacturers of Containers and Packagings of Cardboard Ondulado, has developed AviAFCO, a sustainable container that uses to transport whole chickens from the installations of the provider to the centres of distribution of the big surfaces, markets and other points of sale.
The boxes AviAFCO are manufactured entirely in cardboard ondulado and bear perfectly the manual manipulation of casting, pesaje, labelled and repaletizado. These containers allow to reduce until 40% the days of truck in the logistical circuit, diminishing like this the expenses of transport, fuel and tolls and contributing to mitigate the climatic change.

When being of an alone use, the box guarantees the hygiene and the alimentary security. Besides they can go impresas, making possible the perfect identification and trazabilidad of the product and favouring the image of mark.
The cardboard ondulado is a material of renewable origin, 100% recyclable and quickly biodegradable. It fulfils like this the present and next requests of the Spanish and European rule, and the demand of some consumers increasingly concienciados with the sustainability.
