Fresh produce importer and distributor based in New York, Jac Vandenberg Inc. has recently introduced a market-first in sustainable packaging for its Sunrays products which are developed and produced by TIPA.
Now Vandenberg’s Sunrays packaging, just like their citrus counterpart, are certified home compostable.
John Paap, brand manager at Jac Vandenberg says, “In our BIO bags we have a real solution that offers something that looks and feels like traditional plastic but will biodegrade in compost, just like the fruit inside it. We are confident that these bags will help retailers achieve their targets set around zero waste, plastic reduction, and overall sustainability.”
Daphna Nissenbaum CEO and co-founder of TIPA says about food waste: “One of the most promising and simple solutions lies in the problem itself: this wasted food, 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”.
