Is it possible to produce a plastic- free barrier coated packaging that can be processed in New Zealand after use so that it has zero negative impact? Berica wrestled with this question but have finally found the answer. In ‘Plastic-Free July’, the company is excited to introduce Erthical packaging to the New Zealand market. The innovative packaging is a first for New Zealand and will help to reduce the use of plastic, is recyclable and compostable, and if discarded outside conventional waste streams it will still break down.
A first for New Zealand, Erthical packaging is made from a new- generation foodboard, which is a zero-plastic paperboard, with an organic barrier coating, that is food safe for both hot and cold foods. To launch the packaging, Berica has secured an exclusive New Zealand/Australia distributorship of this new paperboard, which has been eight years in development.
