TIPA and PerfoTec compostable packaging for fresh produce

Friday, 05 February, 2021


Compostable packaging producer TIPA and shelf-life extension specialist PerfoTec have partnered to create compostable packaging that is designed to extend the shelf life of fresh produce by up to two times.

The resulting laser microperforated compostable film is claimed to reduce food waste, combat plastic pollution and cut carbon emissions.

TIPA’s compostable packaging performs like a conventional plastic but decomposes in compost back into the soil with no toxic residue, microplastics or other pollutants.

Suitable for fruit, vegetables and flowers, the packaging solution is designed to fit with industry machinery and manufacturing practices.
