Our Materials

Sustainable food packaging is heart of our business from raw material to finish goods our packaging are fully environmental friendly, which not only help us to reduce the Carbon but has no negative impact on the environment.

We use 3 main Materials to make our products which are:

  • Renewable Resources

  • PLA - Bioplastic

  • Recyled Plastic

There are 3 types of process to decompose these products after use:

Renewable Resources

  • Sugarcane Bagasse

    Bagasse is a waste product derived from the sugarcane juice extraction process. As it is by definition a waste product, any products made from it automatically have a low carbon footprint.

  • Palm Leaf

    Palm Leaf products are made from fallen palm leaves which are cleaned in local spring water. The leaves and then put in a heat press, stamped and then cut into shape.

  • Wood

    Palm Leaf products are made from fallen palm leaves which are cleaned in local spring water. The leaves and then put in a heat press, stamped and then cut into shape.

  • Recycled Paper

    Recycled paper products contains between 20-100% post-consumer waste, helping to conserve finite resources.

After use:

PLA – Bioplastic

Bioplastics are basically plastics made from plants. The starch within most plants can be used to form plastic polymers. For example wheat, soya and tapioca can be used. We use Corn to make our bioplastic and the name of the polymer is Polylactic Acid or PLA for short.

After use:

Recycled Plastic

Products made from RPET are fully recyclable and thy have the same quality as virgin PET products. Using these products ensure less plastic waste goes to landfill and reduces our dependence on virgin plastics.

After use:

Biodegradable

The term ‘Biodegradable’ is used for those things that can be easily decomposed by natural agents like water, oxygen, ultraviolet rays of the sun, acid rains, micro-organisms, etc.

Compostable

Compostable products are those which can commercially breakdown with 12 - 18 weeks when properly composted.

Recyclable

The term ‘Recyclable’ means products is widely recycles in UK and Europe, what this mean is packaging can be recycled and re-manufactured into a new products.

Certification

All of our products are Compostable; meaning they can break down in under 12 weeks; are fully biodegradable and not the least recyclable. The most widely used composability standards are the European EN13432 and the American ASTMD 6400.

They are largely equivalent, and include the following elements:

  1. Biodegradation - materials turn to soil through microbial action at the same rate as cellulose (paper)
  2. Disintegration - the materials fall into small pieces
  3. Eco-toxicity - seeds can germinate in the resulting compost - i.e. it is useful for plant growth
  4. Heavy metals - the compost is safe to go onto land

MNA PAC is committed to supplying genuine compostable packaging and disposables, and we ensure our products are compliant with these standards.
