Print & Packaging
When it comes to sustainable eco-friendly packaging, Platypus Print and Packaging are the experts and leading the way, working closely with the industry to resolve a frequent dilemma faced by suppliers, supermarkets and the modern consumer with a genuine eco-consciousness and concern about the environment, wildlife and future landfill.
There is a global shift happening and an increasing demand for eco-friendly products, print solutions and multi-purpose packaging innovations. Our new innovative Eco-friendly Fresh Produce holders include basket, carriers, boxes, trays and small fruit punnets that are suitable for a multitude of fresh produce products from 100g – 1kg, such as herbs, berries, apples, carrots, tomatoes, kiwifruit, avocado, oranges and lemons. Sustainable and compostable packaging solutions are easily achieved by using fibre board with clever die-cut shapes for attractive packaging display design and fresh produce vision, natural soy inks for printing and minimal compostable glue binding. Our fibre board material is PEFC or FSC certified safe forested or recycled.
For the 1 kilo packaging, we recommend a basket:
- made of fibre board
- carry handle
- strong crash-lock bottom
- delivered flat
- mounts in 2 seconds
- carbon footprint reduced
- plastic free alternative
