CKF Inc., backed by Scotia Investments Family of Companies and a manufacturer of food service, disposable tableware and food packaging products, has acquired Packright Manufacturing Ltd., a supplier of recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) thermoformed rigid packaging for fresh foods, produce and baked goods.
Packright provides custom-designed, short- and medium-run packaging solutions to brand owners across a variety of markets such as produce, confectionery, bakery, snacks, deli, food service and others. The company’s packaging services include clamshell and hinged plastic containers, trays and tills and cake bases and domes. Packright works to continue its growth with the CKF partnership.
“Not only are we gaining a tremendous depth of knowledge in rPET design and manufacturing, but the acquisition aligns with our vision and investment strategy to build the scale and standardization required for a sustainable, circular economy for rPET,” comments Ian Anderson, president of CKF.
