Punchbowl Packaging’s approach was to deliver a simple, sustainable solution, while ensuring a range of ‘end of life’ options. The punnet is made from renewable sugar cane byproducts, achieves a 10% weight reduction compared with the plastic clamshell and is suitable for both recycling and composting in home compost systems.
Replacing traditional plastic clamshells, this packaging comes from the waste product of a renewable resource and reduces plastic by 95%. The film offers a user-friendly peelable product. The materials break down in home compost systems and the high pulp yield means it is also suitable for recycling streams.
