Polytag has worked with several top brands over the past few years. The groundbreaking work has proven the need for increased technological adoption by retailers, producers, brands and recyclers.


In November 2022, we announced our new partnership with Ocado Retail. Together we will deliver a world-first trial in an effort to improve the recycling rate of single-use plastic packaging in the UK.

For the first time ever, on-pack Digital Deposit Return Scheme (DDRS) technology is going to be introduced to product packaging for one of the UK’s leading online grocery retailers.
