As a company we are committed to reduce our impact on the environment and to help other companies do the same. We have taken a pioneering role in developing functional and cost effective sustainable packaging by investing in its development for almost 20 years.
Our commitment to sustainable packaging was recognised with an Environmental Packaging award from the Packaging Council of New Zealand (Inc) in 2011.
High Performance Sustainable Packaging
Our strong focus on innovation and environmentally-responsible packaging has resulted in the development of several high performance sustainable films. We understand that to be commercially viable, packaging has to offer good barrier and sealing properties, and needs to be robust enough to withstand production processes and distribution chains with minimal modifications.
Our technical team will help you trial sustainable packaging from initial packing and sealing to the end of your supply chain to make sure it delivers the performance you need.
Econic® – High Barrier Compostable Packaging
Econic® is made from three different compostable films that are laminated together to lock in the freshness, taste and flavour of coffee and dry products.
The three films are derived from sustainably-produced wood pulp and GM-free corn sources. Each film has been internationally certified to the European (which covers the UK) and American compostability standards (EN 13432 and ASTM6400). Find out more about Econic®.

Compostable Greensack™ Bags and Bin Liners
Made from cornstarch produced from GM-free sustainably-managed corn plantations, Greensack™ film is compostable when disposed of in a composting environment containing heat, water, oxygen, soil and micro-organisms. It is certified to meet the Australian Bioplastics Association AS4736 `Seedling Logo’ Compostable Bioplastics Standard and the European Compostable Standard EN13432
