All You Need to Know About Eco-Friendly Packaging

Whether you’re a restaurant offering takeaways or end-of-meal “doggie bags”, a lunch bar, catering company, supermarket or gourmet produce grocer, you’ll know disposable packaging plays a vital element in the storage, presentation and delivery of your food offering.

Yet now more than ever its important we all step up, do our part and take action against our environmental footprint. And that can start with the packaging used for your food. Compared to the Styrofoam days of old (which takes an estimated MINIMUM 500 years to break down in landfill), there are so many more options available on the market now that are far, far kinder to the Earth.

One of the most innovative packaging products of late is the recent compostable range of sugar cane packaging made from a sugarcane fibre byproduct called Bagasse, from which we have developed our very own Profile Earth range. Aside from the obvious environmental benefits of using eco friendly products, what are some features and properties of our Profile Earth selection? Let’s discover…

Microwaveable

Yes – it can still be put in the microwave for your customers to warm up their lunch or dinner. No more warping plastic or leaching BPAs like the old days.

Holds food up to 90 degrees Celsius

Keep food out of the bacteria danger zone with the Profile Earth collection, which can withstand heat of up to 90 degrees and hold food, keeping it safer, hotter and fresher.

Water resistant and oil resistant

This should be a given, but still important to know that even a plant-based packaging can withstand the wrath of liquid and oil!

Less than 90 days to break down

Styrofoam, eat your heart out. In less time than it takes a footy season to run its course, your butter chicken sugar cane packaging container has broken down into landfill (or alternatively can also be recycled in the paper stream).

Strong and durable

With a life of up to 2 years, our Profile Earth range is strong, durable and ensures food is kept contained and fresh.

Easily top sealed

Simple to seal the top with a clear film made of either compostable PLA or recyclable PET, the containers will be tamperproof and also benefit from an extended shelf life for the contents.

By using our Profile Earth range, your business may reduce your plastic packaging footprint by up to 95%, while still preserving your food to its full capacity and making it look pretty and neat too.

Now you’re up to speed on everything you need to know about eco friendly products, and in particular sugar cane packaging, take a look at our Profile Earth range and see the benefits for yourself. The Earth AND your customers will love you just little bit more for it, too.
