Hort Connections Wrap Up 2024

We make, you use, we recycle.

What a week we had exhibiting at Hort Connections in Melbourne! We loved learning about what’s top of mind for everyone in the horticulture industry.

Growers and retailers alike are seeking the most sustainable packaging solutions for their produce boxes. Corflute® eco is an excellent alternative to traditional and outdated packaging because it is more environmentally and economically sustainable than single use cardboard boxes and polystyrene boxes used in picking, transportation, and delivery.

From Waste to Wonder at Hort Connections

Apart from creating our own stand at Hort Connections, we also teamed with Filton Packaging to remanufacture their packaging waste into a spectacular expo stand at Hort Connections.

Read about how Australian manufacturer Filton Packaging who specialises in flexible packaging films and bags for the fresh produce industry, has turned their waste into a trade show stand at Hort Connections 2024.

Corex & the Circular Economy

Last year we recycled 500 tonnes of waste materials returned to us from people using Corflute® in signage and display applications alone! We are incredibly proud of this achievement.

To celebrate, we have recently introduced a new initiative, the “Corflute Recycling Partner Program.” This program is exclusive to companies that are part of our full circular economy and aims to encourage businesses to return their materials at the end of their useful life.

Everything we make is invited to be brought back for recycling and reuse in products for tomorrow. Corex Recycling works alongside the factory that produces Corflute® and PROMEG®.
