O.F PACK - supplier of recyclable flexible packaging

OF Packaging is working to provide a breadth of sustainable flexible packaging options to our customers through constant innovation- driven research and development. We hope to be a leading supplier of recyclable flexible packaging formats to Australia in the years to come.

RECYCLABLE POUCHES & REWIND FILM

We launched our first printed, fully recyclable stand up pouch at the beginning of 2019, in collaboration with our customer Brookfarm. Made from low density polyethelene,this mono-polymer pouch has huge potential for recycling via the elimination of issues associated with mixed laminate films.

Major supermarket brands both here and overseas are endorsing recyclable films as a way forward for soft plastics, with a reduction in landfill waste and movement towards a circular economy.

OF Packaging now have the capacity to make a range of printed recyclable stand up or three side seal pouches from LDPE, as well as printed rewind film for Form Fill Seal machinery applications.

Shelf stable products with low-medium barrier requirements, as well as fast moving consumer goods, can benefit from using our recyclable pouches and rewind.

HOME COMPOSTABLE POUCHES & REWIND FILM

Unlike biodegradable materials, home compostable films (such as cellulose)have the capacity to break down entirely over a matter of weeks, not years. Despite limited applications for compostable films in the current market, O F Packaging are working to improve the barrier properties of compostable films and make them a viable option for a wider range of products.

While many brands have worked on for industrial-composting, we recognised that Australian infrastructure would not typically support these film structures, and instead focused on home-compostable solutions for our customers.

We can now create a range of printed stand up and three side seal pouches, as well as printed rewind from home compostable film.
