Coding And Marking - Alara Wholefoods Compostable Muesli Packs

UK-based Alara Wholefoods has partnered with Parkside in an effort to upgrade packaging for Alara's organic muesli range of products from an inner liner made from polyethylene and petrochemical-based polyester to a sustainably sourced high barrier paper laminate using bio-based materials, according to recent reports.  

 
Alara sells their organic muesli products to a wide array of retailers including Sainsbury's, Wholefoods Markets and Ocado.  The products already have a 100% recyclable cartonboard outer package made of renewable raw materials, however the new clear cellulose film laminates lend even more to Alara's goal of using sustainable and recyclable packaging.  Just as with traditional plastic packaging, Parkside's compostable laminates are impermeable, durable and safe for use in food packaging.  Once the organic muesli packs are used, they can be used in residential or industrial composting.
 
Available in clear, matte, metallized, white and kraft, it took seven years of research and development to come up with the compostable laminates that could effectively replace traditional plastic packaging.  Parkside head of innovation and new product development Phil O'Driscoll said food brands, retailers and manufacturers are looking for packaging solutions that support their green efforts.  O'Driscoll said the company is proud to have partnered with Alara to help them obtain an exceptional pack solution that is totally sustainable.
