Industry Solutions

Compostable & Recyclable Flexible Packaging

Compostable pouches and bio packaging solutions have increasingly been in demand worldwide. That is why we have pioneered our Compostable Pouches to use only certified compostable materials and components, making them the perfect solution for both home and industrial composting! 

Our marketing research in the past has highlighted issues in compostable packaging including low barrier protection, poor heat sealability and weak material causing the packaging to break and crease easily. We have therefore been sourcing worldwide to develop compostable and recyclable flexible packaging that can combat these issues- providing an eco-friendly solution without compromising the quality of the products.

Unlike some ‘compostable’ packaging solutions which still contain plastic components or take ten years to be composted, all our material and components including the zips and valves are certified home or industrial compostable. It means you do not need to remove zips and valves to compost.

We provide home compostable pouches, industry compostable pouches and fully recyclable pouches! Enquire with us today to find the perfect solution for your business.

Home Compostable Pouches

All of our Home Compostable Pouches are made from materials sourced sustainably from wood pulp or bioplastic. All materials have been certified as home compost by a number of testing organizations.

Our pouches can be custom made in a variety of sizes, printing and styles. They are perfect for a range of industries and products such as dry goods, confectionery, coffee, tea, produce and organic foods! The compostable barrier layer in our compostable packaging also brings the benefit of optimal protection against aroma loss of your goods! Please be advised these pouches are not yet suitable for liquid and wet products at the moment.

Benefits and certifications

  • Our paper for the outside layer of our packaging is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified Paper and so it is responsibly sourced from environmentally managed forests.
  • When composted, the paper also enhances soil quality.
  • The multi-layered material inside the pouch also acts as a safeguard to preserve the aroma of your products against moisture and oxygen and prevents UV damage.
  • The inside film layer provides excellent heat sealability and is in line with Industrial Compostable Standards such as the Australian Standard AS4736-2006, The International Organisation for Standardisation ISO 17088, ASTM International ATSM D6400, and the European Standard EN13432.
  • These standards were all approved by the Australasian Bioplastics Association (ABA), Din Certco and the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI).
  • The packaging material has also been certified for home composting by ‘OK Compost Home’ by TUV Austria and aligns with the Australian Standard AS5810 approved by the ABA.

  • Enquire with your local Council or the Australian Organics Recycling Organisation Ltd about how to compost industrially near you.

Size & Styles

  • We provide a range of standard sizes (as the following table) and designs to provide you with a convenient selection but we also do custom packaging, according to your desired size or packaging design.
  • There is also the option to have a window on the pouches to showcase your exquisite food products. You can, therefore, enhance your brand image and style whilst making an environmentally friendly choice!

Recyclable Pouches

Our recyclable pouches are made from fully recyclable PE or PP material, providing a simple packaging solution that can save you money as well as the planet through reusing, recycling and repurposing! We also have pouches with valves and zips that are also completely recyclable.

These film types (PE or PP) used in our recyclable pouches are perfectly suited to be recycled after use through the REDCycle by conveniently dropping them off at  REDCycle collection bins which are located across Australia at common supermarket chains such as Woolworths and Coles. 

Benefits

  • Unlike other recyclable packaging solutions, our pouches have high oxygen and moisture barriers. According to our testing, our recyclable pouches have an even lower oxygen and moisture transmission rates than traditional single-use plastic pouches.

Minimum order quantity

  • 10000pcs for standard size without printing
  • 20000pcs for custom size and printing

Application

  • Our recyclable pouches make the perfect packaging design for coffee, tea, organic food, produce, confectionary and dry goods!

  • There is also the option to have a window on the pouches to showcase any delicious food products!
