Plastic-free Foopak from Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) Sinar Mas to feature at EXPO PACK Mexico Recyclable & compostable food packaging solutions respond to growing demand in Central & Latin American markets

Mexico City, Mexico, June 6, 2022 – Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) Sinar Mas is responding to growing demand from brands, government, and consumers for sustainable packaging by showcasing its full suite of food packaging at EXPO PACK Mexico, Santa Fe, June 14-17, one of Central & Latin America’s largest and most significant sustainable packaging events. APP will display the award-winning, plastic-free, customizable, and retail-ready compostable Bio Natura sustainable packaging range of cups, bowls, and take-a-way food containers. 

Across the Americas, Mexico is playing a leading role in driving the adoption of sustainable packaging with a simultaneous push from government regulations and consumer demand. The result is helping drive an uptake among food and beverage brands and food service companies to introduce sustainable and plastic-free dine-in and takeaway containers. APP’s Foopak Bio Natura is microwaveable, recyclable, and compostable, responding to this need.

“Mexico is one of the largest and fastest-growing markets in Latin America spurred by an expanding middle class, and an increase in disposable income has led to a boom within the restaurant, and food service industries as more people eat out or order takeaways. Paired with the global awareness of environmental issues and government legislation spurring more sustainable requirements, it is driving demand for sustainable packaging products. With the Foopak Bio Natura suite of sustainable, plastic, and chemical-free packaging solutions, we can respond to this growing and urgent need for Mexico and the rest of the continent”, said Anthony Atamimi, Director of Latin America Sales, Asia Pulp & Paper.

APP’s retail-ready cups, bowls, and boxes are available in various stock sizes and can be customized with branding and size configurations. Created for hot & cold food and liquids, Bio Natura uses an innovative nano aqua-dispersion coating technology, replacing harmful petroleum-based and plant-based plastic coatings. The plastic-free solutions ensure the offering is both compostable and recyclable. 

The packaging can be used in microwave and conventional ovens and complies with the European Commission Regulation No. 10/2011 and Regulation 1935/2004. It is FDA-compliant, PFAS free, meets Halal requirements, and is REACH and BfR certified for direct food contact. 

These products can be seen at booth #804 throughout EXPO PACK Mexico and representatives will be on hand to explain the special sustainable features of Foopak Bio Natura.

APP will also feature the Foopak Bio Natura line at the four-day Pack Peru Exhibition from August 24 – 27th at Fair City Village, Lima, Peru, Booth D358.
