Jet Technologies joins the APCO

Global companies such as Nestlé, Unilever, Coca-Cola Amatil and Jet Technologies are making improvements to meet modern packaging standards. In late-September, the Australian government launched an official Australasian recycling label as an important tool for achieving the 2025 targets. The Australian Packaging Covenant Organisation (APCO) explains that the new evidence-based system is designed to combat confusion about recycling as there are currently more than 200 recycling labels.


Minister for the environment, Melissa Price, said the label provides people with easy to understand recycling information when they need it most – in those few seconds when they are deciding what bin the package goes in. “The label removes confusion and reduces waste,” she said.


More than 50 Australian businesses have committed to the program, with the label now being used by brands including Woolworths, Officeworks, Nestlé, Unilever and Plantic. These APCO members, and others such as Jet Technologies, Blackmores and Australia Post, have committed to the design, manufacture and use of packaging that will ensure recyclable packaging.


Whether it’s a wrapper covering a bite-sized chocolate morsel, or box of refreshing beverages, the target is aimed at all food and beverage packaging. Jet Technologies gives its clients solutions for numerous packaging challenges, including offering recyclable packaging for the beverage industry down to small items such as wine hoods that sit on large recyclable glass bottles. Jet Technologies is working closely with APCO to meet the 2025 packaging goals.


Jet Technologies is a specialist importer and distributor of products to the packaging industry, the industrial manufacturing industry and the print and finishing industry. Within the beverage industry, it supplies sparkling wine hoods, wine and spirits closures, bag-in-box beverage holders and casks.
