Viscose Closures – the company behind Viscose Viskrings tamper evident seals – are seeing business thrive thanks to a growing awareness of environmental concerns, pressurising food producers to look into biodegradable packaging solutions.
The company is seeing enquiries soar, particularly from artisan and organic producers in the food, drink and cosmetics sectors, where the #plasticfree ethos is especially important.
Viscose Viskrings (the trade name for the tamper evident seals) are manufactured in Swansea, South Wales,and made from extruded cellulose, originated from wood pulp, derived from renewal resources – resulting in a non-plastic home compostable product that biodegrades in soil within 13 weeks.
In a bid to try and raise the business’s profile, Viscose has invested in creating a new video, which has just been launched to help potential purchasers see how Viscose has potentially found a solution to the UK’s plastic waste problem.
Viscose originally saw growth for its tamper evident seals in the international gas market but are realising the market landscape in the UK is changing. The tamper evident seals are applied by hand, generally around the neck of a container and left to dry for up to 60 minutes (this is when the shrinking happens), resulting in a skin-tight tamper-proof seal. The product is an ideal eco-conscious tamper evident seal solution for small, artisan producers and new business start-ups who have no equipment to apply tamper evident seals.
The world’s only manufacturer, South Wales based Viscose Closures is notching up an enviable reputation for service and quality as well as a string of awards, with both managing director and production manager winning awards in ‘The Top Manufacturers 100’.
Jackie Royall, CEO of Viscose Closures, says:
“We are very excited about releasing our new video showing the product decomposing harmlessly in soil. We are really trying to raise the profile of Viscose as our product is perfectly positioned for the current #plasticfree movement and we really want the world to know!”
“Viscose Viskrings deliver a perfect plastic free tamper seal solution which literally doesn’t cost the earth.”
