Understanding the Bio Range Food Packaging and How It Can Improve Your Business

Biodegradable, compostable, sustainable, eco-friendly-- these terms seem to be popping up everywhere these days, and for good reason. The earth is suffering from a host of environmental problems, and these terms are simply the text representatives of the solutions being implemented to answer these problems.

One of the most drastic environmental problems we’re facing today is the staggering amount of non-biodegradable waste we’ve accumulated over the years, and are still producing at an alarming rate every year. In Australia alone around 9.7 billion single-use plastic bags are being thrown away every year, adding up to the world’s plastic waste problem.

One of the biggest contributors of plastic waste is the food industry. This is especially true now that takeaways and food deliveries-- along with their mostly plastic packaging-- are becoming ever more popular. Fortunately however, there’s a greener alternative to plastic food packaging that’s slowly taking over in Australia: bio food packaging.

What Is Bio Packaging?

If you’ve never heard of it before, bio packaging is packaging made of more sustainable, biodegradable materials such as sugarcane pulp and plant-based plastics, which are compostable and have a significantly lower carbon footprint than conventional plastics. These sustainable packaging materials may be made differently, but they still look, feel and function like your regular plastic packaging. Some also have the added benefit of being safe for heating or freezing foods since they don’t contain any harmful additives that other plastics may leach into food during these processes.

In Australia, BioPak is the leading manufacturer of bio food packaging. This bio packaging company produces paper cups and bowls made from paper that is sourced from managed plantations, and use soy, water-based inks and renewable hydro power for production. They also produce the Biocane range, a range of food packaging made of abundant and rapidly renewable sugarcane pulp; as well as clear bioplastics made from compostable plant-based resources.

Why Choose Bio Food Packaging?

While they are currently not as popular, widely used or cheap as regular plastic packaging, bio packaging can be quite advantageous for your business. Switching to bio food packaging shows customers how you care about the environment, and this positively influences how they see your business. Using bio food packaging fosters brand loyalty, because customers become inspired by and committed to your cause. It can also make your brand more talked about and popular for the good that it’s doing.

Of course, using more environment friendly food packaging has benefits that go beyond your business. By doing this you’re not only doing your part in saving the environment, you’re also making customers more conscious of environmental issues and their impact on the environment.
