To provide customers with the most advanced offerings in compostable products we work with film suppliers / laminators with a wide selection of compostable and biodegradable materials. Compostable packaging options are evolving and always changing, and we plan to add more material options in the future.
BioCareKraft and BioClear are compostable packaging materials great for most dry and semi-dry food items. Both materials provide barrier protection and can be composted. We have several thickness options to increase visual appeal and barrier.
There are multiple levels of certifications, both by industry associations as well as governmental organizations. Generally there are two types of compostable packaging first are industrially compostable materials, which can be composted in a industrial composter, and second are home compostable (ambient) which can compost under standard home composting environments. The process of composting requires a combination of temperature, microbial life, water, oxygen, and other factors.
Several labeling schema have been developed to identify the compostable and disposal characteristics of compostable packaging materials. DIN Certco and Vincotte being the two many organizations pushing these labeling standards.
