The two leading sustainable materials companies join forces to deliver a wider range of research-led material where there are currently no workable alternatives. Together, they respond to an ever-growing market requirement for truly workable circular economy solutions, particularly within the packaging and other FMCG markets, where TIPA and Aquapak have recognised that no one material currently exists which answers all the functional requirements of the market.
The most promising and simple solutions for wasted food and packaging lies in the problem itself: wasted food and packaging—if composted—could slow climate change and improve soil quality and quantity. When food waste, along with packaging like paper, cardboard and other compostable options, break down in composting facilities or even in backyard compost piles, they don’t produce methane, and they result in carbon-rich soil that can be used everywhere from potted plants to commercial agricultural fields.
Fudge Kitchen is putting sustainability at the forefront of its business with the launch of a new range of products in fully compostable pouches. These products are made from renewable resources – including TIPA bio-based film, NatureFlex cellulose and PaperWise paper, and can be composted in household food waste.
