"The end of life issues associated with packaging need to be addressed at the concept of design, and more so, with the choice of materials used to produce it.
It's time for a new way of thinking."

The Problem – The Solution
The global problem of plastic pollution is the result of serving our own convenience.
Delipac is a truly sustainable barrier packaging board.
Completely food safe, it is made entirely from paper fibre with no PE lining or plastic of any kind...
...and that makes it:
can be made into new paper products!
both home compostable and industrially compostable
when discarded outside of conventional waste streams
Hence, a Delipac product can be disposed of in any given scenario without causing any harm to the environment….
and that's why Delipac is a convenient solution for a convenient lifestyle.
The science behind what makes Delipac truly sustainable is quite simple………. it's made from paper fibre - a raw material that is produced from a natural and renewable resource that makes a product that is highly recyclable, naturally compostable and naturally biodegradable.
The science behind how it works lies in the water based barrier solution applied to the surface that comes in to contact with food and liquid. The barrier is completely safe (see certifications) and robust enough to contain food, sauces and liquids at both high oven and deep freeze temperatures, and it's flexible enough to enable all sorts of innovative packaging engineering solutions.
Delipac is PEFC™ certified, which guarantees that it is produced from sustainably managed forestry sources, and it is manufactured under the internationally recognised ISO 14001 (environmental) and ISO 50001 (energy) management standards.
Furthermore, Delipac is a Carbon Balanced product. The carbon emissions associated with its raw material sourcing and manufacture have been offset via the World Land Trust's Carbon Balanced paper scheme.
