Let’s face it - we could do a lot better in the packaging we produce.
Packaging is informative, convenient, improves product safety and consumer health. But the type of packaging we buy every day is creating a problem, affecting both the short and the long-term health of our environment.
The solution? BÉSICS® compostables is a premium brand of quality compostable food service ware and packaging for the North American retail market. BÉSICS® products are produced with the goal of being 100% plant-based and 100% compostable; the good news is we’re on our way!
To produce better products, BÉSICS® starts at the beginning, working with producers to find better resins, pulps, adhesives, and other essential pieces of the puzzle. As part of our Research and Development program, we work hard to understand how materials are sourced and combine to produce the products that meet our BÉSICS® standard. The BÉSICS® goal is to have complete confidence in the environmental and consumer performance of the products we sell – a confidence that goes beyond certifications.
As part of our mandate for compostable product innovation, BÉSICS® is developing research partnerships with major North American academic institutions to:
1) Better understand the impact of compostable products on the environment,
2) Improve compostable resins in manufacturing, and
3) Identify new sources of compostable materials.
BÉSICS® brand is produced by the BÉSICS® Packaging Corp. in Vancouver, Canada. We’re always looking for new partnerships so if you have any questions, please contact us!
