Detpak partners with Foodland to reduce single-use plastics

September 20, 2022

Detpak has partnered with mighty South Australian business, Foodland, to redesign core packaging products used within the bakery section in their grocery stores.

This new range of products can be placed in a kerbside recycling bin after use to live again as part of the circular economy. The range includes flat bags, bread bags and cake boxes.

“It is an exciting time for Foodland as they transition away from plastic toward recycled content paper and board products,” said Group General Manager of Marketing, Matthew Taylor

“And this is just the beginning. We’re also investigating sustainable solutions for other sections within Foodland grocery stores.”

Franklin dos Santos, Chief Executive Officer, Foodland Supermarkets said “This initiative is the beginning of our journey to 2025 when our packaging will be compostable, recyclable or reusable across all Foodland stores.”
