Introducing Eco Pouch - Biodegradable Vacuum Pouches

Compostable, Biodegradable and Ocean-Friendly Vacuum Pouches

18 months In The Making! After months of extensive trials, we have developed Eco Pouch – a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic-based vacuum packaging

We experimented with a vast number of raw materials and substrates before the formula for Eco Pouch was found. The final product is a balance between a pouch that has the qualities required of a vacuum pouch (burst pressure, clarity, strength and durability), and a pouch that is friendlier to our environment.

Manufactured on-site in our purpose-built UK factory under AA accredited BRC conditions.

Biodegradable and Compostable

Eco Pouch is a biodegradable packaging that breaks down, under specific composting conditions, back into water, carbon dioxide (CO2) and biomass.

Made from a range of natural products, including paper, eucalyptus fibre, cassava and corn starch; Eco Pouch is ideally suited to the vacuum packing of goods up to 1kg in weight.

Home Composting – takes less than 26 weeks at ambient temperature (<30ºC).

Industrial Composting – takes less than 12 weeks at 60ºC.

Ocean Friendly

Prevention of packaging materials entering our marine environments should always be a priority. However, should Eco Pouches find their way into the seas or rivers, they offer a more eco-friendly solution to petrochemical based packaging.

Eco Pouch has shown encouraging results when exposed to marine environments; typically reducing to granular levels within 24 weeks of immersion and exposure to microbes, water and oxygen.

Eco Pouch will return back into water, carbon dioxide (CO2) and biomass without eco-toxicity.
