Saved by nature.
As we began to turn our vision of a plastic-free future into reality, the idea of making net packaging out of cellulose fibres was a revolutionary concept. Meanwhile, our Packnatur® Cellulose Tube Netting made from LENZING™ Modal beechwood cellulose has been put to the test thousands of times on the market. Onions, potatoes and limes are not the only things that look good in nets. As a market leader, price leader and quality leader, VPZ’s future in nets looks good, too! The Packnatur® Cellulose Tube Netting has been introduced in many leading supermarket chains in Europe, as well as on the international market. We also supply packaging companies with a full range of products, from tube netting to organic wineglass labels.

Spun-dying is simply better
Compared to conventional dyeing, where dye is transferred to the finished fibres, spun-dyed fibres require 64% less water, 90% fewer chemicals, 20% less energy and 62% less heating, while producing 64% less waste water. The pigments are fully integrated in the fibres themselves, rendering them suitable for food use.
The Packnatur® Cellulose Tube Netting by VPZ is biodegradable and certified with the “OK compost HOME” label for Europe and the USA.
Further information about the material used in our products and their sustainability can be found here.
The breathable natural nets keep consumers’ produce fresher for 2 or 3 days longer and prevent the premature sprouting of potatoes and onions. The packaging is soft to the touch and looks very natural.
The Packnatur® cellulose net is compostable, allowing it to re-enter the food life cycle. Food that is no longer fit for sale can be disposed of in its packaging.
