Mintons Good Food introduces home compostable packaging

Health foods brand Mintons Good Food has launched home compostable packaging.

The new compostable pack will replace the brand’s previously non-recyclable plastic packaging for its range of pulses, beans, cereals, grains, and dried fruits.

The company said it features improved oxygen barrier performance to extend the shelf life of the goods.

The duplex compostable laminate is manufactured by Futamura, designed to break down within 26 weeks in a home composting environment, gaining full accreditation from TUV (formerly Vincotte).

The packs are also tested for eco-toxicity and various other criteria against EN 13432, the European standard that lays out the requirements for packaging that is recoverable through composting or biodegradation.

Sales director Mark Lancett said: “With the current plastic debate showing no signs of slowing down, our new innovative packaging solution is beneficial both for the environment and providing an environmentally-conscious product for our consumers.”
