New snack packaging decomposes like orange peel after just 24 weeks

The packaging for UK-based Snact’s range of fruit jerky snacks has been redesigned by TIPA, with the orange peel-like decomposition taking only six months.

The new fully compostable, flexible packaging becomes fertiliser for soil after its 24-week biologically decomposition.

The packaging for the fruit jerky snacks range is among TIPA’s laminate series, which is designed to package snack foods including granola bars, crisps, dried foods and vitamin capsules.

Snact co-founder Ilana Taub says: “We launched our new packaging in December last year with traditional plastic as we struggled to find an environmentally-friendly option that had the functional properties required as well as being food safe… now we have the perfect solution to do this and build on our own eco credentials.”

TIPA CEO and co-founder, Daphna Nissenbaum, adds: “Over 9.6 million tonnes of plastic waste is sent to landfill every year in Europe and something has to change. We look forward to the beginning of a new era in packaging where for the first time, viable end-of-life solutions are available on the market.”
