Sustainability as a concept describes development that is environmentally compatible and meets the needs of today without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. That’s why we rely on paper as the sustainable base material for our packages. Its ecological advantages such as recyclability and compostability are crucial for our future. The increasing centralization of food supply involves hygienic and ecological problems when combined with the ever-growing global population and their needs. Thus, we believe that flexible paper packaging offers a reasonable solution.
- Paper is produced using renewable resources.
- Paper is 100% biologically degradable.
- Moreover, paper can be recycled up to seven times.
