We have now had the Government’s initial response to the consultation on the Plastic Tax.

Despite our stance that the start date of the tax from April 2022 was too soon for the supply chain to prepare for the introduction of the tax. We are still far from certain that there will be enough recycled plastic to meet the 30% threshold for the amount of plastic packaging currently in use.

We also still need to address the issue that recycled plastic currently cannot be used in food contact plastic.

The Government have announced they will form a Working Group formed of interested parties including trade bodies, the Federation will ensure members’ interests and concerns will be communicated either directly by the BFFF or by us working in collaboration with other trade bodies.
