Bamboo is a renewable and compostable resource that has multiple applications when it comes to packaging. Our Bamboo packaging, such as bowls, is reusable, which means it's designed to be used multiple times.
The paper used for our packaging is FSC-certified paper. Our paper packaging is certified to EN13432, which means it will completely break down in 60-90- days in a commercial, industrial compost facility.
PLA – Bioplastic
PLA-bioplastics are normally certified to EU Regulation EN13432. This means that the product/material will decompose into natural products given the correct exposure to heat, light, moisture and oxygen.
This product is made from PET (Polythene Terephthalate). PET provides great clarity and is ideal for most cold food applications such as salads, sauces, cold drinks and smoothies.
PET is fully recyclable (code 1) and should be placed in any recycling bin where it will be captured and reprocessed. Once collected, PET is recycled and reprocessed to manufacture RPET.
Polypropylene is a widely used material in foodservice packaging. It is a flexible plastic which means it does not break easily and will not splinter.
Polypropylene is widely recycled (code 5)
RPET – Recycled Plastic
Products made from RPET are fully recyclable and have the same quality as virgin PET products. Products that have less than 30% recycled content in the UK will be subject to taxation from April 2022. rPET products with 30% or more recycled content will be exempt from the taxation.
Sugarcane bagasse is a renewable material. All of our sugarcane bagasse is certified to EN13432, which means it will completely break down in 60-90- days in a commercial, industrial compost facility.
Historically, Polystyrene was a widely used material in foodservice packaging.
As the packaging sector moves to a more circular model, polystyrene has limited use in the sector. The legislation will result in the elimination of PS cutlery which was the main material for single-use cutlery.
PS is brittle and will break and shard easily however it provides excellent clarity.
PS is not widely recycled
