Most sushi trays are made from conventional plastic derived from finite fossil resources. With 9% of the world’s plastics actually getting recycled, we need a more sustainable alternative to sushi trays made from conventional single-use plastic.

That’s why we’ve created our certified compostable, carbon neutral sushi trays which are made from plants and provide a closed loop alternative to their conventional plastic counterparts. Now, sushi restaurants can serve their customers in compostable sushi containers mde from plants - made for the circular economy where there is no waste.
 

In the last 18 months, we have launched the BioPak Compost Service to over 1,800 postcodes in Australia and New Zealand, and have had our cups and lids certified to Australian standards (AS4736) – in addition to the European certification which we've held for a while – in an effort to provide confidence and comply to the most stringent, regional practices available.

BioPak is recalling 12oz ByoCups manufactured before 2015 and sold between February 2013 and April 2018. In extreme circumstances, the bottom of the coffee cup may detach. If this occurs while the cup contains hot coffee/liquid, there is a risk of injury to the user. We take this very seriously, and are working with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and New Zealand's Trading Standards on this voluntary recall.

Plastic straws may only be used for a few minutes, but their negative effects on the environment last a lifetime (and then some). In 2018, plastic drinking straws have been in the media for all the wrong reasons with excessive consumption and disposal causing harm to gentle sea creatures, littering beaches around the world, to name a few.

Australians have a love affair with coffee, each year using an estimated 1 billion disposable coffee cups. That's approximately 2,700,000 paper cups tossed out every day. 

2018 has been a year of big commitments! We are proud to announce that BioPak has joined as a signatory to the New Zealand Plastic Packaging Declaration. BioPak is dedicated to stopping plastic pollution and we’re doing our part by offering compostable alternatives (made from rapidly renewable, sustainably sourced materials) to fossil fuel-based plastic used in foodservice. 

By 2050, there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean. The problem with plastic pollution starts long before it reaches our oceans and beaches and so must the solutions.

We believe that working side-by-side, businesses and governments can tackle plastic pollution at the source. We have signed the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s New Plastics Economy Global Commitment to stop plastic pollution.

BioPak will be trading as usual through the holiday season, closing only on the public holidays (25-26 Dec 2018 and 1 Jan 2019). Our warehouses close at 12 midday on 24 & 31 Dec.
