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 more than 20 years.
Our commitment to sustainable packaging was recognised with an Environmental Packaging award from the Packaging Council of New Zealand (Inc) in 2011.
Sustainable Packaging & Recycling Solutions
Our strong focus on innovation and environmentally-responsible packaging has resulted in the development of several high performance sustainable packaging options and bespoke recycling solutions.
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.

Home Compostable Packaging
We have been producing home compostable packaging since 1997. Our Greensack™ bin liners are used by leading waste management companies to divert significant volumes of food waste from landfill and are certified to the AS4736:2006 commercial composting standard.
In 2010 we launched our Econic compostable packaging range. Econic packaging allows businesses to reduce their impact on the environment while still retaining the same level of functionality and food safety provided by traditional plastic films. Find out more about Econic.

Recyclable pouches are ideal for a wide range of packaging applications, from food to industrial parts. They offer high quality print presentation and can be customised to suit the functionality required for specific products, production lines and packing processes.
We offer several high performance recyclable options to make your packaging more sustainable, including mono-material #4 recyclable pouches made from low-density polyethylene (LDPE) materials.
The recyclable pouches keep our Beta Bites Snacking Carrots fresh and support our premium messaging of `Snacking and Fresh’ by providing consumers with the convenient re-closeable zipper they want. Shifting to a recyclable pouch has allowed us to continue to benefit from the functionality provided by plastic pouches in a way that is kinder to the environment and meets the sustainable packaging requirements of the supermarkets we sell to.

We are really pleased to have found a local recyclable pouches supplier that not only provided us with the packaging we need, but also worked with our Auckland lozenge manufacturers to make sure the pouches run really well on their packing lines. After sourcing our previous pouches offshore, it’s been a breath of fresh air to work with an account manager who is based just down the road from us.

Convex are able to bring a lot of options to the table when it comes to developing new packaging. They are definitely leaders in fresh cut packaging and working with them is helping us bring new innovations to our industry.
