Detpak to begin supplying sugarcane-based compostable product range to South East Asia, Middle East

Manufacturing News

Packaging business Detpak is launching its Eco-Products range into South East Asia and the Middle East. 

The Eco-Products from Detpak range was formerly only available in ANZ. The range is made from moulded sugarcane bagasse fibres and includes fast food packaging such as clamshell containers, bowls and plates.

(Eco-Products is a Boulder, Colorado-based developer and maker of renewable and recycled resource-based packaging. It and Detpak have been doing business since 2021.)

“In South East Asia and the Middle East, consumers are becoming increasingly concerned about food waste and used packaging disposal and more conscious of composting and using more products made from recycled content,” said Detmold General Manager of Product and Brand Keith Bishop in a statement on Tuesday

“By expanding our product range into new and emerging international markets, we are stepping up to create a more sustainable packaging industry through compostable and plant-based materials that are better for the environment – such as the no-added PFAS Vanguard range.” 

Detpak launched Vanguard last year. It is described as made of a proprietary formulation to achieve grease resistance, and certified compostable. 

Detpak said at the time that the introduction represented “a key milestone of our strategy in phasing out added PFAS from our entire product range”.

Detpak is part of Adelaide-based Detmold Group, which also operates the PaperPak and Detmold Medical businesses. The group operates in 17 countries and has factories in seven. 

The release did not state where Vanguard would be produced for the expanded list of markets.

Detpak supplies to brands in Australia including KFC, McDonald’s, Hungry Jack’s and Subway.
