Alder-Tek Manufacturing has the resources and experience to ensure the work you have put into your brand is not undone at the very first bite.

Innovation

Plastic production and use rates are high and increasing every year. At the same time, recycling rates for plastic are declining, mostly due to increased costs associated with sorting and processing different types of plastic. Finding alternatives to plastic will require a new approach. Alder-Tek is pioneering the use of new materials, production methods, and delivery channels to drive a fundamental shift away from plastic and towards a sustainable alternative.

In the US, only 8%
of disposed plastic
is recycled.
