What Can My Business Do?
Plastics are essential for protecting our food products because they extend shelf life and prevent food waste. Currently, 1/3 of the world’s food supply spoils before it is consumed.
How to choose packaging options?
- The most important consideration is packaging performance because the resources that go into producing food products often far exceed the resources required to package them
- The usage of as little material as required, it’s light weight and low volume to help minimize the footprint of each package’s creation and distribution
- The final important point to consider is the package’s end of life – and select an option based on where your packaging is likely to meet its end of life
Excellent Barrier Properties
BioFlex™ flexible packaging can be designed to maintain the barrier properties of conventional packaging to ensure that product shelf life is not compromised.
FDA Food Safe
The packaging is FDA compliant and safe for food contact. BioFlex™ has been verified through standardized third-party testing including ASTM D5511 to confirm that BioFlex™ increases biogas production and does not merely break down into small pieces*. Furthermore, BioFlex™ packaging can be designed to maintain recyclability.
No Consumer Training Required
Unlike other solutions, BioFlex™ utilizes infrastructure that already exists in many areas and does not require consumers to change their habits. This makes it very likely that a BioFlex™ package will end up in a landfill and fulfill its intended end-of-life – putting energy back into the grid*!
