ORANGE, California , March 3, 2023 (press release) –

Responding to expanded state legislation in the United States to remove fossil fuel-based single use plastics from packaging and waste streams, Charta Global will showcase its portfolio of sustainable paper-based food packaging solutions at the Natural Products West Expo to be held from March 9-11 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

As the market continues to demand plastic-free sustainable food packaging solutions to adhere to regulatory and consumer demand, US-based Charta Global, the exclusive sales channel for Asia Pulp & Paper (APP) Sinar Mas in the Americas, will feature its expanded Foopak Bio Natura paperboard range - from trays for baked goods and instant cereal cups, to boxes for frozen confectionary and microwaveable meals - for both retail food product packaging and foodservice packaging at the expo.

According to a report by Technavio, paperboard packaging will continue its upward trajectory this year, driven chiefly by e-commerce growth, consumer consciousness on the use of environmentally-friendly packaging, and demand for lightweight packaging to reduce shipping costs and transportation emissions. Globally, the market size for paper and paperboard containers and packaging is forecasted to exceed US$ 84 billion by 2023.

“Today, eight states in the US have banned many plastic products, with California being the most stringent. We are seeing private investment in composting and recycling, making the circular approach to waste a reality. Our products provide the plastic-free, versatility, and compostable solution brand owners, restaurants and food service providers are seeking” said Anthony Atamimi, Director of Sales, Charta Global.  

FooPak utilizes an innovative, sustainable, and revolutionary aqua-dispersion technology to replaces harmful petroleum and plant-based   plastic coatings. Foopak Bio Natura is home compostable within 24 weeks, and certified plastic-free for curb-side recyclability. It is also FDA compliant, meets and is both REACH and BfR certified for direct food contact.

Also on display will be the companies’ Enza and Foopak brand suite of lightweight, flexible, PFAS-free line of paper packaging for bakery, liners, packets, wrapping, and bags. The durability of the smooth in-line finishing provides a sustainable alternative to petroleum-based film pouches. Both Enza and Foopak are FDA compliant, and all paper products being featured at the expo are from renewable PEFC-certified fibers.

The products can be viewed at Hall D, Booth 4088 at the Natural Products West Expo.
