UK Plastic Packaging Tax

Dear Valued Customer,

As you are most likely aware, the UK Plastic Packaging Tax came into effect on 1st April 2022. This £200/tonne tax applies to businesses producing or importing more than 10 tonnes of plastic packaging per year, that does not contain at least 30% recycled material. Whilst there are exemptions to this tax, it is intended to incentivise the use of more sustainable and recycled polymers. For more information, please visit

Matrix Plastics Ltd is a business dedicated to the sustainable manufacture of polymer products. We understand and appreciate the important role businesses such as ours have in the strive to protect the planet whilst leveraging the benefits of plastic as a material. As such, we have been working tirelessly to ensure our own packaging is in compliance with UK PPT legislation.

We are proud to confirm that Matrix Plastics’ 15kg and 25kg printed and plain PE valve packaging bags are now made from 30% recycled PE polymer.

Please note, Matrix Plastics Ltd is not responsible for the UK PPT liability on the product itself.

If you require further information or would like to discuss the formulations of your own plastic packaging, please do not hesitate to contact us. Yours faithfully,

Richard Hoare

Commercial Manager
