More about our packaging
The world of food packaging is complicated. There is a fine balance between material that is suitable for the product so that it remains shelf stable, and it’s impact on the environment. We are progressing with the packaging industry, and are currently converting to the latest recyclable 2 material available.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is your packaging Resealable?
Yes, the stand up pouch bags we use have a Zip-lock to re-seal following opening, helping to keep your pack as fresh as possible
Is your packaging Recyclable?
We currently have a combination of packaging in place, with majority of our packaging is plastics resin code , meaning it is made up of multiple polymer layers, and cannot be recycled easily – often ending up in landfill.
Together with our packaging partners at Caspak, we have commenced the use of a mono structure i.e. a 2 layer packaging solution (2 layers of the same polymer – plastics resin code )- which can be recycled through the RedCycle soft plastic return to store systems.
About a quarter of our products have been rolled over and are using this material, with the remainder a gradual roll-over as our current packaging supplies are used.
Caspak are also in discussions regarding the implementation of the “Roll to Recycle” kerbside recycling of soft plastics, which we will endeavour to implement once approved.
Can we buy your products in bulk to avoid any packaging?
For those who live locally, we can arrange pickup of bulk product from our facility. We also have a number of bulk wholefood stockists, where you can purchase all your favourites as well as other pantry items.
Do you have any recommendations for re-using/re-purposing your packaging?
Yes, please re-use your empty bags! Given the nature of our product, the bags are pretty easy to wipe clean once you have finished with the product inside. We store our pre-cut fruit in these bags in the freezer, ready to add to smoothies or add to pancakes. As they stand up right, but are still flexible enough to be strategically placed in even a full freezer. We also use them to store lettuce and herbs from our veggie garden in the fridge, to pack a snack for when on the road and to store sourdough! They can be used for non-food purposes also, such as keeping your kids colouring pencils in, storing those loose nuts and bolts from furniture in the garage. The possibilities really are endless.
