Newry-based food-to-go manufacturer Around Noon has invested £250,000 in a new printing business that it says will reduce the amount of plastic that it uses by over 60 tonnes annually.
As reported by The Irish News, Around Noon's new printing business, Around Noon Print, has been created as part of the company's commitment to environmental sustainability and to improve flexibility for customers.
The new printing operation will meet all of Around Noon's label printing needs, giving the company the flexibility to add and delist products in a speedy and efficient manner, and the company's flexographic printing press will allow all of Around Noon's labels to be cut and printed on recyclable paper and reduce plastic label waste to nil.

"Environmental sustainability is extremely important to us, and this investment helps us to deliver on the latest stage of our 'Keeping it Green' manifesto."
