Parkside has helped SUKI Tea achieve an innovative and sustainable solution pack for its various loose tea product.
The printed pack supports the brand’s ethos and vision to operate in a more socially, economically and environmentally sustainable manner; replacing a plain design and enabling the company to move closer towards its sustainability goals to be 100% plastic free by 2022.
Made from bio-based materials and featuring a compostable zipper, the new pouch design provides excellent oxygen, aroma and moisture barrier that extend the shelf life of the tea while maintaining optimum flavour.
Zoë McCullough, sales and marketing manager at SUKI said, ‘Customers are becoming increasingly aware of their environmental impact and therefore eco-friendly packaging was a key for SUKI. It’s been a challenge but an important one that links closely to our core ethics and ethos, Parkside have been instrumental in achieving one of key objectives – plastic-free tea packaging.’
The packs are designed to break down within 26 weeks, are suitable for industrial composting facilities, and comply with A Plastic Planet’s Plastic Free Trust Mark. The high definition graphics created with HD compostable inks also provide greater shelf appeal for the tea brand.
