Why choose BioPak?

At BioPak, it is our mission to produce the most sustainable, environmentally friendly packaging in the market. We champion compostable packaging and we’re focused on reducing tree-based paper and fossil fuel-based plastic used in foodservice by offering an eco-friendly alternative.

As the first packaging company in Australia and New Zealand to become carbon neutral, we strive to minimise any negative impacts our business has on the environment. Sustainable and responsible manufacturing is at the core of what we do, that’s why our production facilities are certified to ISO environmental, quality and food safety standards.

We are also a certified B Corporation and believe we have an obligation to preserve and protect the environment and to give back and support the communities in which we operate. So, when you purchase your packaging from BioPak, you can trust that we’re giving back 7.5 per cent of our profits, as well as contributing our time and energy to make a positive difference and accelerate the transition to a circular economy.

Additionally, we offer the BioPak Compost Service which connects our customers to commercial composting facilities to divert our customers' compostable packaging and food scraps from landfill and instead have the organic waste turned into compost. We are the first manufacturer and distributor in the area to provide this closed-loop solution to support the circular economy.

How did BioPak start?

BioPak was launched in 2006 by Richard Fine, joined shortly after by Gary Smith. The goal was to bring more sustainable single-use packaging alternatives to the market. In the span of a decade, BioPak has disrupted the industry and continues to lead by developing innovative packaging solutions based on the principles of a circular economy.

Where are your products made?

All our products are manufactured overseas and we account for and offset all emissions associated with the production, distribution and disposal of our products.

We have an exclusive partnership with five production facilities located in China and Taiwan. All suppliers are thoroughly audited to ensure they meet our stringent quality and environmental standards. Our production facilities are best of breed and we have processes in place to ensure consistent quality and adherence to environmental practices, including certifications – ISO14001, ISO9001, ISO22000 and many more. We audit them every year to conduct reviews on their processes and business practices and together we work on an advance program of continual improvement.
