In order to satisfy our customers, who care for their environment and are health conscious, we have launched two Bio™ coffees in fully certified compostable packs. Working closely with Futamura and Goglio S.p.A we have been able to launch this integrated coffee packaging system with a bio degassing valve into the market. So far we have had an excellent response from our customers.
Plastic waste is one of the major problems on our planet – and we manufacturers in particular have a duty to take quick countermeasures. At Samova we are already using home compostable NatureFlex film with great success for the individual packaging of our ‘Space’ and ‘Express’ tea bag collections. We are also currently working on refill bags made from NatureFlex for our loose tea.
We have been producing sustainable packaging from bio materials for a number of years. It is fantastic to see these types of solutions being more broadly recognised. We have used NatureFlex films for many of our packs as they are fully compostable and easily converted; which means we can use them on their own, or as with the De Halm pack, as part of a more complex bio-laminate structure.
We know our customers share our concern for the environment and we’re continually looking at ways in which we can address the sustainability of our products. This includes reducing our plastic use and introducing more sustainable products and packaging. NatureFlex is an incredible alternative; it looks just like plastic but can be easily popped into the food waste bin or home compost after use. We look forward to introducing this innovative product to our customers and helping them to tackle plastic waste this festive season.
NatureFlex is a core component of all our home compostable laminates at Parkside Flexibles due to its excellent barrier characteristics. This functionality has enabled us to create our award-winning range of compostable packaging solutions, the Park2NatureTM collection. Futamura is a world-leader in the development of cellulose films, and we have worked with the company for almost ten years to produce our market leading range of packaging.
