Young Kobras Success Story

Young Kobras Make the Jump from Industrial to Home Compostable with TIPA

“Our new packaging is beautiful! I love that it stands out on the shelf and reflects our commitment to sustainability. Our preservative-free bread doesn’t last forever, and we don’t think our packaging should either.”

Young Kobras’s mission is to create delicious and nutritious gluten-free bread. They started by supplying bread to their small local cafe in the bay area, which is famous for its city-wide composting programs. Since then, they have expanded their product and vision, and now see Young Kobras as building the foundation for a sustainable, multi-product, gluten-free, whole grain food company. Today, they are one of the first nationally distributed GF sourdough brands in the US. 

It’s challenging to buy groceries without taking home single-use plastics, and because of that Young Kobras decided they never wanted to be a part of that problem. They had been using commercially compostable packaging for the past couple of years but were ready to take the jump to home compostable packaging. With TIPA, they found a bag that was both flexible and strong as they needed, with the extra bonus that it could be printed on, making for a very good visual eco-friendly packaging upgrade for them.  

 

They chose TIPA’S home compostable wicketed bags made from durable, transparent, and printable TIPA 302 and their customers are very happy about the switch!
