Just in time for Auckland’s announcement for picnics of up to ten people, BioPak have relaunched their certified compostable retail range including cups, plates, bowls, straws and wooden cutlery at Countdown. This range of disposable partyware is housed in paper sleeves and boxes, made from sustainably sourced paper, making the packaging completely plastic-free. The new packaging design features an image of the product printed on the box, allowing the customer to see the packaging without adding a plastic window.
Perfect for family gatherings, picnics, BBQs and of course Christmas, consumers can feel at ease knowing they are choosing a disposable option that is better for the planet. The bowls and plates are made from sugarcane pulp, a by-product of sugar production. It is a home compostable, rapidly renewable and biodegradable resource, making it easy for customers to have a completely waste-free gathering!
Propelled by consumer demand and single-use plastic bans coming into legislation across the globe, supermarkets are moving towards better, renewable, plant-based materials that have a responsible solution for end of life disposal.
“We have been selling our certified compostable and carbon neutral retail range for a number of years, and removing any plastic packaging that houses our products is the next step in the evolution. It's always great to partner with retailers like Countdown who share similar values and goals to eliminate unnecessary waste,” says Gary, CEO of BioPak.
