Compostable, biobased

Compostable, biobased packaging for organic chips The introduction of Trafo Hummus Chips marks a further expansion of the range of organic crisps and snacks from FZ Organic Food, based in Wolvega, The Netherlands. Not only the delicious flavour of this product is exceptional, but also its packaging. FZ Organic Food has chosen a Bio4Pack packaging that is fully compostable, in accordance with the strict EN13432 standard – see the 7P0466 seedling logo – and is also four-star (i.e. > 80 %) biobased. In other words, more than 81 % of the raw materials used are renewable. In short, the packaging fits perfectly into FZ Organic Food’s mission and vision. Solution with vision This Bio4Pack packaging solution is entirely fitting for a company with vision such as FZ Organic Food, as it enables them to comply immediately with the wishes and requirements of the Dutch Lower House with regard to the use of metallised multi-layer packaging. In its current form, such packaging must be off the shelves by 2050. Bio4Pack’s sustainable multi-layer packaging already fulfils the Lower House’s requirements and, as it has the same material characteristics as the current multi-layer films, it can easily be processed with standard machines. What’s more, the film can be printed in up to eight colours. In a nutshell, Bio4Pack’s sustainable, compostable crisp packet provides FZ Organic Food with packaging that does justice to both the quality of the product and the future of our planet.
