Chrysal introduces a complete line of sustainable flower food packaging at the IPM in January 2020. The line of sustainable flower food packaging comprises of the compostable sachet, the new recyclable plastic sachet and new paper sachet.
Last year the company introduced their compostable sachet, fully industrial compostable in the same time as a banana skin. The sachet has been nominated for a Greenovation Award 2019, an award given to a sustainably produced product or concept by Royal FloraHolland. And now at the IPM they also introduce their new recyclable plastic sachet and paper sachet. The recyclable plastic flower food sachet is made from fully recyclable plastic. The paper sachet is made of ECF pulp and has a bio based coating. This means the sachet can be thrown away in the paper bin.

Ten year ago the company started with Chrysal Cares, their sustainability program. By using Chrysal products, significantly less water is used and flower wastage and packaging materials reduced. Peter Vriends, Chrysal CEO: “Our goal is to make our packaging sustainable through the Reduce, Re-use and Recycle principle and to contribute to our sustainability goals and those of our customers. We are looking at all of our packaging and one of the steps we are taking is introducing a recyclable flower food sachet. In 2022 we want 50 percent of our sachets packaging to be either recyclable, compostable or re-usable.”
