At Naturpac we are motivated to drive our partners throughout the grocery supply chain to consider ways to use less plastics, instead exploring recyclable, biodegradable and ultimately compostable options.
We are working with retailers, local government partners, schools and University research institutes to identify the best ways to educate the consumers of today and of tomorrow on the benefits and ways to save our planet through recycling practices.
We are challenging ourselves, our partners and our piers to strive beyond recycling. We recognise that recycling is not the end goal. We need to aim for compostable solutions that are focused on the betterment of the earth, every step of the way.
Based in Australia and New Zealand, we plan to start locally and build a funnel of change where businesses start by transitioning to Bronze level packaging options. However, at the other end of the funnel – we hope one day to see people striving to make all of their packaging choices centre around compostable options.
Our parent company, J-Tech Systems is one of Australia’s largest packaging providers for the Fresh Produce industry. As such, we are strongly positioned not only to deliver change, but to champion it ourselves.
As a result, as a part of our Corporate Social Responsibility targets. We are aiming for the following three goals:
J-Tech Systems was an early adopter of environmentally friendly packaging options. Adopting and getting behind Earth Cycle Punnets at the earliest stage.
J-Tech Systems started investing in compostable labelling and label backing many years ago, and continues to do so.
Back in 2016 J-Tech signed on as a pioneer pilot partner with INFIA to trial and roll out their earliest RPET product lines.
An organisational rethink in 2017 triggered two main motivators for J-Tech systems: Do better by our supply chain, do better by our environment.
Following two years of scaling with INFIA, J-Tech became the first 100% RPET provider in Australia.
As a finalist for the PMA-ANZ tech innovation awards, J-Tech was given the stage to announce its intentions to continue to do better by its supply chain, and better by the environment.
It announced the launch of Naturpac in December 2020.
