BioPak launch new environmentally friendly Sushi trays
BioPak has launched a new range of environmentally friendly Sushi trays and lids that result in 75% less greenhouse gases than conventional plastic alternatives.
The sushi tray bases are made of bagasse with 80% sugarcane pulp and 20% bamboo pulp. The rapidly renewable sugarcane pulp is made from a by-product that would otherwise be burned after the juice has been extracted for sugar production.
The sushi trays are available in 3 different sizes, small - 138mm x 63mm wide, long - 192mm x 62mm, and large - 185mm x 105mm. The bioplastic sushi tray lids are leak-proof and have an anti-fog additive that allows for crystal-clear presentation.
Leanne Osborne, Managing Director of BioPak UK, said: “We’re excited to launch this new product which will be perfect for restaurants around the country. We’ve seen a lot of demand in anticipation for this particular product and, as always, we’re glad we can provide a market-leading packaging solution that is better for the planet than the traditional plastic-based alternatives.”
Last year, BioPak’s packaging helped to offset 90,538 tonnes of carbon and stopped the creation of 21,211 tonnes of plastic.
