As social distancing becomes more prevalent, many restaurants and cafes are beginning to offer takeaway and food delivery services for the first time. Here are our tips for getting takeaway and food delivery right.

In 2019, the conversation surrounding climate change became a regular feature in mainstream media and Australia grappled with a national recycling crisis following the introduction of China’s National Sword Policy. So how can foodservice brands make a positive difference this year? It could be as simple as changing your packaging.
In this post, we share how to reduce your carbon footprint and limit the negative environmental impacts associated with the foodservice industry. The best bit? Making a positive difference is easier than you might think.

BioPak has recently declared a Climate Emergency and is committed to taking immediate action on climate change. We strongly believe that we need to decouple our economy from fossil fuels, and using renewable material alternatives for packaging is one way to move in that direction.

 

According to a recent report by The New Daily, every six days a new craft brewery opens in Australia. But between clinking cans and all the beer-loving merriment, waste is inevitably created.

Australia’s leading eco-friendly packaging company BioPak has announced its expansion into Singapore offering more sustainable foodservice packaging alternatives to conventional plastic packaging. In Singapore, 2019 has been declared the Year of Zero Waste. However, 40% of waste Singaporeans place in the recycling stream ends up in landfill and a third of waste created and disposed of in Singapore comes from packaging.

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.
