Compostable packaging for straws

“Product and packaging form a unit. That is why SNeL involves the packaging right from the start in a product development or optimization process” (SNeL)

The Innovation
Did you know that 90% of the film around straws on drinking packages does not end up in the waste bin? SNeL is developing a compostable cellulose film to replace the PP film currently used. On top of finding sustainable solutions to straw packaging, SNeL offers advice on food packaging in general. Thereby, the emphasis is on ensuring that all requirements of the packaging, such as providing information, making the content transportable, protecting the product, storage and recyclability are met.
