Irish brand, All Real Nutrition, has launched its first-ever range of healthy, natural protein bars in compostable packaging after a collaboration with innovative packaging solutions provider, Parkside.
The move represents a further step in the brand’s sustainability journey, utilising a new pack specifically designed to provide a practical sustainable option that benefits the environment, without compromising performance.
Niall Harty, Co-Founder of All Real Nutrition, said: “We are delighted to announce this progression into 100% compostable packaging. Our collaboration with Parkside has enabled us to achieve an all-round compostable, organic and certified product, with packaging which does not compromise the overall quality of our protein bars. Responsible design and manufacturing are core to our business, which makes the partnership with Parkside a natural fit.”
During the composting process, the packaging fully breaks down within 26 weeks, depending on the efficiency of the compost setting. The materials then return to the soil, leaving no adverse effects on the environment. This is a result of utilising bio-based paper and metallised NatureFlexTM cellulose films, manufactured by Futamura, which are manufactured from sustainably sourced wood pulp.
Staci Bye, New Business Development Manager at Parkside, said: “It was a huge privilege for us to be asked to collaborate with All Real Nutrition on this project. The values and ethos of the company fit perfectly with our Park2Nature range of compostable packaging, and it has been great working with the team to deliver this great looking solution!”
The product development team at Parkside has dedicated almost a decade of research and development into its compostable laminates. As a result, the company now boasts over 20 TUV accredited compostable structures, which form its award-winning Park2NatureTM range.
