Seaweed chips in compostable natureflex™ packaging

27 March 2015

Innovia Films has announced that Ocean’s Halo Seaweed Chips are using its bio-based NatureFlex™ packaging. This flexible packaging material is derived from sustainable wood pulp, offers excellent barriers to oxygen and moisture, and is certified compostable.

When looking at packaging options, Ocean’s Halo felt that the pack should reflect their core values while also providing superior protection for their product.

Bill Reilly, the Development Manager with Genpak (the converter) said “Our challenge was to develop a structure that provides excellent barrier properties and works well on the packaging equipment. Oceans Halo, Innovia Films and Genpak worked together closely to develop this functional and compostable structure using NatureFlex™.”
