Asia Pulp And Paper expands sustainable packaging company to Singapore
Asia Pulp and Paper (APP) announced that it is expanding its flagship packaging brand, Foopak Bio Natura to Singapore.
Foopak Bio Natura supplies a range of environmentally friendly and plastic-free food packaging to food and beverage (F&B) businesses.
With the expansion, the Indonesia-based manufacturing company is intensifying its actions to reduce 70% of plastic waste by 2025 and achieve net-zero by 2040 through its Sustainable Roadmap 2030.
Recognising the need and lack of environmentally-conscious packaging against global plastic waste leakage, mostly from food and drink packaging in Asia, the company aims to combat the rising plastic pollution in the F&B industries across the world.
Foopak Bio Natura holds a plastic-free certification from Flustix, an international plastic-free certification body based in Germany, after rigorous and stringent multi-tiered analytical testing. In addition, it conforms to the US FDA standards and fulfils REACH requirements for direct food contact whilst addressing plastic waste concerns.
According to APP, Foopak Bio Natura packaging products can biodegrade fully in the backyards or gardens of homes within 24 weeks.
