Sustainable Packaging

 Learn more about the materials we use in our takeaway food packaging and recommended disposal methods for them.

NATURAL PULP

Sugarcane bagasse forms the basis of our pulp based packaging. Bagasse is the dry and fibrous residue left after sugar extraction. The high cellulosic and hemicellulosic content of sugarcane lends strength to the packaging. Completely biodegradable and compostable, pulp based packaging is one of the most sustainable choices for takeaway food packaging.

 

Recommended disposal: Green waste

Cardboard Sheets

PAPER & CARDBOARD

The humble cardboard has been used in the food packaging industry for a long time. Multiple layers of paper with varying degrees of corrugations are bound together to produce  sturdy yet flexible packaging. Being 100% natural, the packaging is not only biodegradable but also recyclable. The reprocessed paper has plenty of applications ranging from outer cartons to grocery bags. ​

 

Recommended disposal: Paper & cardboard waste (ensure minimum grease or food scraps are left on the packaging)

(BIO)PLASTIC

Polylactic acid (or PLA) is a bioplastic derived from renewable resources such as corn or sugarcane. Unlike its oil-based counterpart, PLA emits less greenhouse gases in its production and disposal. It behaves similar to a thermoplastic polymer, hence can be moulded to produce packaging or applied as a coating on paper or pulp based packaging. PLA based food packaging is industrially compostable, making it a viable alternative for plastic packaging. ​

 

Recommended disposal: Compostable or general waste (check with local authorities on waste compostability standards)

PET is one of the most widely used plastics in the packaging industry. Most commonly used to make beverage bottles, it has also become a symbol of an unsustainable future. We understand how the use of plastics can be detrimental to the planet, which is why we have chosen to include packaging made only of recycled PET and not the virgin material. It still provides a high degree of transparency, strength and flexibility, and yet, is capable of being recycled multiple times.

 

​Recommended disposal: Plastic waste (ensure minimum grease or food scraps left on the packaging).
