Foopak Bio Natura is an environmentally friendly packaging paper, it’s made from materials that can be decomposed in the soil, can be recycled, and are not harmful to the environment and humans. Eco-friendly packaging paper is not only used to keep nature safe but can also be used as a promotion for a product because many people already understand the importance of protecting the environment and supporting sustainability.
Why can Foopak Bio Natura be considered an environmentally friendly product? Because this paper already has a plastic-free certification from Flustix, recyclable from Cyclos, and has food grade testing report from ISEGA and FDA. Foopak Bio Natura paper can be placed in the microwave with a maximum temperature of 175o degrees Celsius. The result of research and development that we have continued to do over the years is ordered to obtain packaging paper that can be a solution for plastic waste which has become a concern abroad.
In Expo Pack, US VP of Sustainability and Stakeholder Relations, Ian Lifshitz spoke about current opportunities and ongoing trends on plastic alternatives and sustainable solutions, along with the Director of ITPC and representative of Grupo Phoenix at press breakfast.
