The company that we represent began making PLA compostable milk bottles in 2004. They may have been the first company in the world to produce a PLA bottle for dairy products.
We can still provide the white preforms for dairy as well as the transparent ones. Our fully compostable bottle shrink sleeves can be added for an amazing marketing tool. This way the full compostable milk bottles become an advertisement.
Our company is part of GO!PHA is a member-driven, non-profit initiative to accelerate the development of the PHA-platform industry. They provide a platform for sharing experiences, knowledge, and facilitating joint development initiatives.
By using PLA bottles when packaging milk, yogurts, drinking yogurts, etc., a 100% natural end product can be created. No toxic packaging for your natural product. In our opinion, there are countless advantages.
Our Compostable milk bottles are 100% compostable in an industrial composting facility. They are 100% safe to incinerate if they end up in the incinerator and if this is present, our bottles can also be recycled perfectly as mono-stream PLA at a special PLA recycler.
Various end-of-life solutions that you can use to set yourselves apart from the “crowd” as a company. Your CO2 footprint will be reduced with the use of our bottles and having 100% plant-based packaging adds value to your product line.
At the start of the dairy production line in 2004, our CEO asked himself the question. “Why are organic and all-natural products actually packed in petroleum bottles and why is there no plant-based alternative?”
At that moment, the search for an alternative started. And later that same year, this alternative was found in PLA. A 100% plant-based bioplastic that does not contain petroleum or other harmful substances.
As far as we know, this may have been the first company in the world to develop plant-based PLA compostable milk bottles. All this more than 15 years ago. To this day, we still ask ourselves the same question———————- “Why are organic and natural products actually packed in petroleum bottles?” It never had any logic behind it—and it still has no logic.
