Huh­ta­maki Lur­gan calls it­self “a per­fect ex­am­ple of the new cir­cu­lar econ­omy”. The oper­a­tion, part of a Fin­nish com­pany, is the largest user of re­cy­cled pa­per in North­ern Ire­land con­vert­ing old news­pa­pers and print­ing off-cuts into egg car­tons, egg trays and cup car­ri­ers for the food ser­vice sec­tor. The Lur­gan oper­a­tion, which em­ploys 228 peo­ple, has been mak­ing moulded fi­bre prod­ucts for over 70 years.

It says that it has in­creased its share of the egg pack­ag­ing mar­ket over the most re­cent year, with de­mand ex­pected to grow by around 4% per year. It says that car­rier cup pro­duc­tion is also con­tin­u­ing to meet de­mand, with the mar­ket tipped for growth of 6.5%. The com­pany is also work­ing to de­velop other prod­ucts from re-cy­cled pa­per to meet de­mand for al­ter­na­tives to plas­tic.
