Compostable packaging from Parkside fits Two Birds Cereals’ ethical philosophy

Plastic-free home compostable packs from packaging solutions specialist Parkside are now being used by Two Birds Cereals, producer of a range of super seed breakfast toppers.

Manufactured from wood-pulp that has been sourced from eucalyptus plantation waste, the packs comprise a multi-layer laminate that offers high oxygen, aroma and moisture barriers to maintain optimum flavor and freshness, in doing so helping to extend the shelf life of the product contained inside.

The packs are designed to break down within 26 weeks in a home composting environment, gaining accreditation from TUV (formerly Vincotte) and are available in a range of aesthetic options including white, matt, clear, metalized and kraft.

“These new packs are officially certified as home compostable in line with our ethical philosophy,” commented Tricia Traynor, co-founder of Two Birds Cereals. “We always aim to use sustainable and recyclable packaging so we could not turn down the opportunity to work with Parkside to bring their compostable packs to Two Birds.”

Parkside’s compostable laminates are durable and impermeable, just like traditional plastic packaging, making them safe to use for food packaging. They are rigorously tested for eco-toxicity and a host of other criteria against EN 13432.

The compostable laminates took eight years of R&D by the innovation team at Parkside and, to date, the company has developed more than 20 accredited home and industrial compostable laminate structures designed to replace traditional plastic packaging.

“Food manufacturers, brands and retailers are looking for packaging solutions that strengthen their green credentials,” said Paul Lenihan, Parkside’s new business development manager at Parkside. “Two Birds has sustainability as a core value of its business and we are extremely proud to have been able to partner with the team and add a new chapter to their brand story.”

Plastic Free World Conference & Expo 2019 will take place from Thursday 27 June to Friday 28 June, at the Kap Europa, Frankfurt Messe, Frankfurt, Germany. To register for this highly focused and solutions-driven event, please click here. For sponsorship and exhibition opportunities, please email
