THE BRITISH Frozen Food Federation has been working over the past few weeks with the Special Interest Group on Packaging plus other trade bodies on a response to the Government Consultation on the Extended Producer Responsibility Scheme (EPR) that will replace the current PRN system.

It believes the proposed legislation will transfer a £2.7bn cost from central and local government to industry, whilst other sources suggest it could be as high as £3.5bn.
