Foopak Leads the Way in Sustainable Packaging: Bringing Eco-Friendly Paperboard Solutions to Australia and Worldwide Markets

Melbourne, 8 March 2024 – Foopak, the innovative paperboard packaging brand under APP Group, announced its strategic plans to widen its existing reach in the Australian market. Having expanded into the Oceania market, Foopak’s development into the Australian market comes at a time when consumers and businesses are increasingly prioritising sustainability. In line with this, Foopak is partnering with Ball & Doggett, a renowned customer in the region, to showcase its innovative products at the Australasian Processing + Packaging Expo (APPEX), at stand B020 from March 12th to 15th, 2024.

Certified for quality and consumer safety, Foopak’s paperboard packaging ensures the preservation of food quality while meeting the demands of today’s fast-paced distribution networks. With a steadfast commitment to environmental responsibility and consumer safety, Foopak represents a breakthrough in sustainable food packaging as it offers a range of high-quality paper packaging products designed to meet the diverse needs of the food and beverage industry while minimising its environmental impact.

The products stand out for their eco-friendly attributes, being made from virgin natural fibre and devoid of harmful compounds, bacteria, and plastic coatings. The use of 100% virgin pulp ensures the absence of lead, addressing health concerns associated with recycled paper packaging. Unlike traditional plastic and polystyrene packaging, Foopak’s environmentally friendly composition aligns with modern sustainability standards, offering a more responsible alternative for food packaging needs. The brand also has an extensive list of national and international certifications, including FDA, ISEGA, ISO, PEFC, SVLK and Halal.

“Through this collaboration with Ball & Doggett, Foopak seeks to enhance its brand exposure, highlight its sustainable paperboard products, and generate interest in its participation at the APPEX Expo. By leveraging strategic partnerships and collaborative efforts, we remain committed to driving sustainability initiatives and expanding our positive impact on the environment,” said Gavin Gunawan, Regional Sales Head of FEA & Oceania. “Our commitment to delivering high-quality, eco-friendly packaging solutions has positioned us as a trusted partner for businesses seeking sustainable alternatives.”
