Bio4Pack was keen to develop a sustainable solution for the packaging of fresh meat with having the complies with the strict requirements of the EN13432 certification standard about compostability.
So, that the dish, foil, the absorption pad, label and ink on the label all had to meet this complies. Particularly the dish is having difficulties to overcome & the dish is made with of PLA (polylactic acid), which is made from sugarcane. This material is generally hard but crisp.
It had taken time to find an impact additive that provides the dish with the necessary strength, while yet meeting the requirements of the EN13432 standard.
The pigment that gives the dish its characteristic green color and meets the EN13432 standard was also hard to find. Eventually, Bio4Pack managed to develop packaging for fresh meat that meets all requirements about compostability and food safety and can effortlessly be included in existing production lines.
