The Paper People’s have spent years of research and development to position paper as go-to source when looking for a recyclable, sustainable, and renewable product. For years the technology was not available to utilise paper as a reliable packaging source to replace various plastic options until now.

Why Paper Packaging?

Not everyone is aware of the many benefits of paper packaging over plastic. So here are a few:

  • Paper is a recyclable, sustainable, renewable resource, with a ready-made recycling stream, high consumer confidence, and is universally recognised as a “green package”.
  • Paper packaging for produce offers superior light protection, has natural absorption characteristics, and can be automated for efficient production.
  • Paper has a large international network of manufacturers ensuring constant supply with manageable market fluctuation.
  • Paper whilst once abolished in place of plastic packaging, is now at the forefront of green packaging, with accelerated innovation unseen in prior substrates.
  • Paper is now very competitive with plastics due to innovation in fiber strength and “stretchable” products that improve package integrity.
  • Most major retailers are asking for paper solutions to replace plastics and laminated structures.
  • Australia is eliminating single-use plastics in favour of paper.
  • Paper packaging can be adapted to existing automated packaging lines such as form fill seals, stand-up pouches, and wickets, keeping the cost of change from plastics to paper affordable.
