Commercially compostable PLA pouch and label
Our 450g frozen have now transitioned to a plant based (PLA) plastic tub that can be commercially composted. Even the label and it's adhesive are sustainably made from plants so can be composted along with the tub.
Commercial/industrial composting is still not widely available in Australia, but we made the change as we feel this was an important step away from petroleum based plastics. We sourced our tubs here in Victoria from PAK360 who operate an organic collection system that diverts the tubs from landfill. Returning the tubs to them allows them to be converted into compost or electricity.
RETURN YOUR TUBS TO US AT FARMERS' MARKETS AND WE WILL PASS ON TO PAK 360.
We are still researching and testing home compostable packaging alternatives for our frozen products. As technology catches up to our ideas this change will occur.
