UK – Worcester-based award-winning plant-based compostable packaging company, BioPak has launched seven new core products designed to provide a much more environmentally-friendly alternative to plastic packaging.

BioPak’s new products include various sizes of chip boxes, chip cups, wrap wedges, sandwich wedges, ice cream cups, sushi trays and taco boxes.

The new sandwich wedges and wrap wedges are made from a sustainably sourced FSC Mix certified paperboard, with a waterproof Ingeo bioplastic lining and window.

The chip boxes and scoops are made with sustainably sourced FSC-certified paper and are certified industrially compostable.

The ice cream cups are also made using FSC-certified paperboard and can be bought with domed lids which are perfectly portioned for service ice cream or frozen yoghurt. BioPak is now also stocking medium-sized sushi trays and two-compartment taco boxes.

Leanne Osborne, managing director of BioPak UK, said: “We’re excited to launch these new products and add to our extensive range of food packaging.

“We’ve known for a while now that there is high demand for a more sustainable range of packaging from the quick service restaurant sector in particular, so I look forward to offering these products to our customers and partners.”

DoorDash partnership

Meanwhile, BioPak recently announced a partnership with DoorDash to launch a new online shopping portal where merchants can enjoy exclusive pricing on sustainable packaging products, including DoorDash FSC™ certified bags.
