Working in the food and hospitality industry certainly presents many different eco-friendly packaging opportunities.

Firstly, you must consider what type of sustainable packaging will keep your food fresh. Will also not compromise your products and increase shelf life. Eateries also need to highly consider what packaging will continue to keep products fresh and still promote your brand.

Looking to go eco-friendly, a nationwide bakery challenged Elliott Packaging to deliver a solution where they reduce their carbon footprint and promote their products. Offering a variety of eco-packaging solutions, Elliott Packaging introduced this business to potato starch bags.

Also known as compostable carrier bags, potato starch bags are made using potato starch which are 100% compostable material. As an eco-friendly alternative to plastic carrier bags, completely disintegrate into carbon dioxide, water and biomass within 10-12 weeks of being added into compost.

After long deliberations and months of searching for a suitable supplier we were fortunate enough to come across Elliott Packaging whose professionalism and product knowledge has been of huge benefit to us.

Looking to move to a more environmentally material for our in store carrier bags and were delighted with the many different options that Elliott Packaging were able to offer us. We decided on completely compostable carrier bags as we felt that this style of bag would send out the best message to our customer base.

We found their prices very competitive and they kept us fully informed of our order status, delivering on time. The bags are absolutely fantastic! We could not be more pleased with the final outcome.

We would highly recommend this company…” – A Nationwide Baker
