Why Choose Plant Based Packaging

Plant based packaging supports the environment and your business

Benefits of plant based packaging

Environment benefits of using compostable packaging are substantial. It requires less carbon to produce, reduces the amount of waste sent to landfill and produces no toxins as it breaks down. The business benefits are sometimes overlooked, but are just as significant. Eco-friendly packaging not only reflects well on your overall company image, but also suggests a higher quality product. More and more people are acting on their concerns for the environment by ‘going green’. For this reason, plant-based packaging is likely to expand your customer base.

Why Plant Based is Better for Everything

We’re specialists in compostable foodservice packaging. Our plant-based packaging products are made from renewable, lower carbon or recycled materials with some able to completely biodegrade in under 12 weeks.


Carrier Bags

Our recycled paper carriers are made in the UK using recycled Kraft paper, making them completely compostable. Our carrier bags can also be customised to match your brand themes and messages.

Takeaway boxes:

We offer the full eco version of takeaway boxes. Our boxes are all created using sustainably sourced paper board with a water-based coating with leak-proof webbed corners and fold-in flaps to give a secure closure

Soup Cups

Our soup cups are made from sturdy, sustainably-sourced board, lines with low carbon plant-based PLA. They are also available in brown and can be customised to match your brand design and messaging

Hot Cups

Our Hot cups are ‘completely compostable’ and customisable with your brand message

Subtle eco-friendly consumer message: ‘This is no ordinary cup. The paper is from a sustainable source & the lining is made from plants not oil. Caution, hot contents.’

Hot Cup Lids

Hot cup lids are made from plant-based CPLA, which has 67% lower carbon than plastic.

They’re heat resistant up to 85°C, with a tight fit. Available in black matt or white.

After use, rather than clogging up landfill, they can be recycled together with food waste.

Hot Cup Carriers

Our hot cup carriers are made from recycled pulp making them 100% biodegradable. We also offer hot cup carrier made from kraft card. Some that can be split easily split through the middle and others with a handle.

Hot & Cold Food boxes

Our takeaway boxes are great for hot, wet or oily foods. They offer a truly eco-friendly alternative to polystyrene takeaway boxes with the added bonus of not leaching toxic chemicals

They’re heat resistant up to 85°C, with a tight fit. Available in black matt or white.

Responsibly sourced plant-based materials


Polylactic Acid (PLA)

Polylactic acid (PLA), also known as Bioplastic is a biodegradable polyester derived from renewable plant materials like corn starch. Bioplastic has a carbon footprint up to 75% less than traditional packaging materials and is now commercially composted every day all around the world. Bioplastic is used in our Cold cups, Cutlery, Deli containers and many more packaging products.


Sugarcane Residue

Bagasse is a dry fibrous byproduct of sugar production. Leftover sugarcane stalks are collected, processed and using high temperatures, molded into various container shapes. Suitable for hot, wet or oily foods, Bagasse is microwave and freezer friendly, sturdy and is naturally grease resistant. We supply clam-shells, burger boxes, takeaway food trays and more.


Cellulose derived from wood pulp

NatureFlex is a home compostable clear film made from cellulose found naturally in wood pulp. Cellulose is one of the most naturally abundant organic materials. It is used for assembly of our cutlery packs, for clear windows in food bags and also is also heat sealable. NatureFlex is microwavable, grease resistant and we now offer NatureFlex on a roll.
