Sugarcane pulp produce packaging is an eco-friendly way to package fruits and vegetables. The 500g and 1kg sugarcane produce trays are perfect stand-ins for plastic berry baskets and are ideal for delicate strawberries, blueberries and raspberries. The 5x5", 6x5", 7x5", 8x5", 1kg trays are easy replacements for the typical styrofoam produce trays that vegetables come packaged in. Our produce trays are designed to reduce the impact on fruits and vegetables while they are being handled, displayed on store shelves, and on their way home with customers.
Not all produce packaging is created equal! Conventional trays are usually polystyrene made from fossil fuels, or paper often being made from old-growth forests. After a short useful life, these trays usually end up in landfill where they take decades to break down, releasing greenhouse gases in the process.
Our eco-friendly produce trays are made from rapidly-renewable, responsibly-sourced sugarcane pulp – a by-product of the sugar refining industry. Compared to paper, sugarcane pulp is even more eco-friendly as it can be harvested annually and it is a waste by-product that would’ve been otherwise burnt. Our sugarcane pulp trays are the first products of their kind certified to AS5810 Australian/New Zealand home compost standards and are also easily recycled in the paper recycling stream. Composting food packaging reduces greenhouse gases, returns nutrients back to the earth and improves soil quality, and costs less than sending waste to landfill.
