Under the partnership, Tosca will assume the role of primary cleaning provider for Loop products in North America, starting in the first quarter of 2023
Tosca, a provider of reusable transport packaging and pooling solutions, has joined forces with Loop, the circular reuse platform developed by TerraCycle, to boost the adoption of reusables.
Under the partnership, Tosca will assume the role of primary cleaning provider for Loop products in North America, starting in the first quarter of 2023.
The company, as an ISO-22000 certified provider, will provide better food safety practices.
Tosca offers several services that are said to be suitable for Loop’s supply chain such as reusable crates and pallets as well as Internet of things (IoT)-enabled reusable point-of-sale displays.
Both firms plan to work closely to broaden the adoption of reuse by participating in sustainability forums and increasing consumer education.
TerraCycle and Loop CEO Tom Szaky said: “As consumers continue to ask for reusable models, it’s important for Loop to have partners who are not only aligned on our vision but have the capacity to expand with us across the globe.
“Tosca has been working in reuse through secondary packaging for more than 60 years so it makes sense we would combine efforts to increase accessibility to reuse.”
Tosca president and CEO Eric Frank said: “We have had our eyes on the great work Loop has been doing in the reusability of primary packaging. I’m confident our partnership will broaden adoption of reusables to all parts of the supply chain and consumer products space.
“Our industry-leading wash process is uncontested in the market and has given our customers so much confidence over the years. It is exciting to offer that value and the strength of our infrastructure to support Loop as it brings the circular future closer to reality.”
Established in May 2019, Loop aims to collaborate with brands and retailers to offer consumers a way to shop for the products they use daily in durable packaging that is reused until the end of its life.
