There's not much that is greener than grass which is why we rely on packaging made of grass or grass cardboard as an alternative to virgin fibre pulp. This consists of up to 25% of excess grass. The grass comes from nature conservation areas.
Fully recyclable and biodegradable, grassboard is ideal for a number of food packaging options and it reduces water and CO2 when compared to cardboard.
Advantages of grassboard
- Over 250 kg CO² and more than 3,000 litres of water are saved per tonne of cardboard compared to fresh fibres and recycled cardboard
- Fully recyclable and Biodegradable
- Dermatologically Tested
- Allergy-Free (through heat and water)
- Chemical-free production
- Has all approvals and certificates for the food sector
Grass carton packaging can be used for a number of packaging applications. It's ideal for fruit and vegetables as well as dry foods. It can also be used for outer packaging/composite carton, non-food applications and covers.
With additional coating, packaging made of grass paper/grassboard can also be used for all non-dry food products. To find out more and discuss your specific product options, contact us!
With our weight-reduced PP/PET packaging, we were able to significantly reduce the proportion of plastic by using the removable carton. The packaging for meat, fish and ready meals is easy to recycle, provides a lot of space for your designs and was named one of 20 top innovations in the field of sustainable packaging.
