Deliveroo is a well-known meal home-delivery business for Australians and available across the country with more suburbs added every week to keep up with the growing demand for meal delivery and takeaway food.
But with an increase in food delivery, which is predominantly served in single-use foodservice packaging, comes environmental impacts that need to be considered and managed.
BioPak and Deliveroo are seeking to address the waste generated by food delivery by offering restaurants and cafes innovative packaging solutions designed for the circular economy where there is no waste.
“We are delighted to team up with Deliveroo in this important step forward in fighting the war on waste,” BioPak CEO Gary Smith said.
“Contamination caused by food residue can be problematic when it comes to recycling single-use foodservice packaging. Composting either at home or in an industrial composting facility offers a practical circular economy solution for used food service packaging”.
“Innovation is at the heart of what we do. For more than a decade we have been working with companies across Australia and New Zealand to provide a viable solution to our current waste crisis, and it is wonderful to see Deliveroo join our ever-expanding network.”
According to Joanne Woo, Head of Corporate Affairs at Deliveroo Australia, the partnerships with BioPak and Returnr represent the company’s desire to be a leader on sustainability, and will help restaurants and consumers make more environmentally-friendly choices.
BioPak packaging is made from plants, using a range of renewable materials that are responsibly sourced. Their sustainable, innovative and certified compostable packaging solutions are designed for a circular economy where there is no waste.
In 2018, BioPak launched Australia’s first national composting collection service, transforming organic food waste and packaging into soil and supporting the growing movement for a circular economy.
