Based on BASF’s certified compostable ecovio, Fabbri Group produces the highly transparent stretch film Nature Fresh.
The new certified compostable ecovio enables the production of a cling film that prolongs shelf life of fresh food and at the same time can be composted after use together with organic waste according to national legislation.
The film helps to keep food fresh for a longer period of time when compared to polyvinyl chloride (PVC) alternatives used for cling film such as polyethylene (PE).
After usage, Nature Fresh, can be composted together with any food waste in home compost or industrial compost according to national legislation.
Carsten Sinkel from Global Business Development Biopolymers at BASF: “The market is looking for alternatives to PVC that is today’s performance standard for most cling film packaging of fresh produce. PE films are lacking in performance, often leading to a reduced shelf life of packed fresh food.”
