About

We are a UK-based specialist expert in the print production onto rigid plastics.
We produce using in house on B2 format using UV litho presses and B2 finishing routes.

As such, we have developed our processes and services over decades to specialise on suitable work with brand owners, print buyers and printers.

If you need a specialist partner to advise and produce resilient, consistent and recyclable plastic products, please get in touch.

Long term partnerships with our customers and suppliers have always been paramount to Ryedale. We work with top Brands, print managers and printers in the UK, Ireland and Europe.

Plastics policy

We operate in line with the main objectives of the UK Plastics Pact, namely:

  • Eliminate problematic or unnecessary single-use plastic packaging through redesign, innovation or alternative (reuse) delivery models.
  • 100% of plastic packaging to be reusable, recyclable or compostable.
  • 70% of plastic packaging effectively recycled or composted.
  • 30% average recycled content across all plastic packaging.

Examples of actions we have taken on this basis are:

  • In the 1990’s we switched all of our house stocks to polypropylene as the optimum material for the majority of our products taking into account long-term cost, availably and recyclability.
  • In 2019 we introduced a minimum of 20% recycled content into our core polypropylene products by default and increased this to 30% minimum for 2022.
  • We introduced RIC recycling codes to products and are members of OPRL.
  • Where possible, our products are designed and priced to produce maximum yield from our plastic sheets.
  • All of our production waste is of a relatively high value so is separated on site and recycled in the UK.

Although our specialism is onto plastics, we actively engage with TwoSides in order to share information on paper, print and board compared to alternative media as many of the same principles apply.

TwoSides have a wealth of resources which can be used to promote the sustainability of the graphic communications supply chain and dispel common environmental misconceptions by providing users with verifiable information on why print and paper is an attractive, practical and sustainable communications medium.
