Leading global packaging company, Detmold Group has taken its environmental packaging range to a new level with the launch of an innovative brand called ‘I am eco’.
Marketing Manager of the Australian owned and operated Detmold Group Shane Fuller explains that the new biodegradable packaging range uses a unique bagasse sugarcane board material formed into food pails by their manufacturing plant. The food pails are already being used by popular quick service restaurant Nando's for several of their menu items with great success.
Representing Detmold's commitment to trial alternative renewable materials, bagasse sugarcane board is not only made from 100% recycled content but can be converted into solid board sheets for effective printing and more efficient transporting, saving energy and reducing carbon emissions.
Recent research indicates the increasing preference for environmental packaging within the hospitality industry in response to the demand from end customers while also creating a point of difference for the business in the marketplace.
According to Mr Fuller, with the introduction of I am eco, Detmold Group's specialist division for the food service industry Detpak offers a large range of environmental packaging with biodegradable and compostable properties.
All 52 items in the I am eco packaging collection are made exclusively from plants such as sugarcane, corn and trees. Detpak's original ripple wrap cup is now available in the I am eco range along with a suite of new products including smooth double wall hot cups, plates, bowls, lunch boxes and pails in numerous sizes.
Offering a wide range of eco packaging products as well as secure traditional products, Detpak has become a one-stop-shop for all packaging needs. Detmold also offers expertise in custom printing on many products in the range.
Genovese Coffee General Manager, Martin Jackson comments that Detpak's expanded range of eco cups not only meets their specific needs but also gives their customers a sense they are doing their bit for the environment.
