"Huhtamaki's clear commitment to recycling is a demonstration of their corporate responsibility for future generations." Caroline Dinenage MP
Local MP Caroline Dinenage met with the company at the All Party Parliament Corporate Responsibility Group awards in Parliament.
Caroline had nominated Huhtamaki as the Gosport Responsible Business Champion for 2018.
The company, based in the constituency, was recognised by the MP for their commitment to plastic recycling, with the introduction of the Gosport Cup recycling scheme.
Keith Crossley, General Manager, was invited to Parliament to be awarded with a certificate.
Commenting Caroline said: "these awards were a good opportunity for me to publically recognise the work that Huhtamaki are doing locally to improve the environment.
When I gave up plastic for Lent I learnt that all of us can do our bit to stem the plastic tide that applies to corporations too. Huhtamaki may make the plastic cups that we all use so much, however they're also part of the solution to recycling them.
It was fantastic to open the first recycling bin at the Gosport Ferry Terminal in January and it is great to see Huhtamaki driving this forward."
