BIOGROS, a supplier of organic products, and Cactus, a major player in mass retailing in Luxembourg, have developed new environmentally friendly packaging for a wide range of organic fruits and vegetables: 100% FSC paper and no mineral oil.
Packaging plays an important role in the preservation of fresh produce, makes it possible to indicate their origin and serves as protection during transport. The desire to use sustainable materials, respectful of nature, seems all the more obvious when it comes to packaging products from organic farming.
This is the challenge faced by BIOGROS and Cactus. United for more than 25 years by the intimate conviction that we must preserve our lands and promote sustainable agriculture, the two partners considered that we must bring the concern for the natural and sustainable beyond the fields, and offer ecological packaging for BIOG fruits and vegetables in order to gradually put an end to the use of plastics in packaging organic food.
While biodegradable plastic is still used for packaging organic fruit and vegetables to distinguish them from conventional food in supermarkets, the new BIOGROS packaging is made of 100% FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified paperboard, and the labels are made without the use of mineral oil. This ensures responsible management of forests. All products in the BIOGROS assortment that allow it, taking into account shape and size, will progressively be packaged using durable and 100% recyclable materials.
