Pakka, a manufacturer of compostable packaging solutions, has launched compostable flexible packaging in partnership with Brawny Bear, a nutrition company that uses the natural sweetness of dates to make delicious healthy food products. According to Pakka, which has dedicated four decades to producing compostable pulp and paper packaging solutions and molded tableware, its foray into flexible packaging is the natural evolution for the company.
With plans to produce such packaging solutions in significant volumes in the next three years, Pakka’s global manufacturing facilities in Ayodhya, India and Guatemala, America are poised to become hubs of innovation and production, the company said.
The collaboration with Brawny Bear encapsulates Pakka’s ethos of compostability. Brawny Bea’s date-based food products include chocolates, chikki, nut butters, milkshake/energy powders, and natural sweeteners.
Pakka’s compostable flexible packaging is food-grade compliant, heat-sealable to showcase its certified compostable status, has a high barrier to prevent exposure, offers premium quality, is lightweight, and is affordable.
Shivaam Tibrewal, founder, Brawny Bear, said, “Brawny Bear’s unwavering mission is to deliver health-conscious consumers with an array of Healthy No Added Sugar Foods that redefine the boundaries of quality and flavor. Simultaneously, we are dedicated to fostering a sustainable business ecosystem that echoes our core values. This vision finds its perfect ally in an exciting new partnership with Pakka that embodies Brawny Bear’s objectives.
“By joining forces, we are empowered to showcase our offerings in packaging that not only underscores our dedication to well-being but also to the preservation of our environment. We view this partnership as a transformative step towards crafting a planet that thrives on wellness and cleanliness. Our commitment to customers extends beyond just taste and quality – it now encompasses a shared vision for a greener, healthier world.”
Ved Krishna, strategy head, Pakka, said, “We are so excited and proud to be associated with Brawny Bear Chocolates, a company that is truly committed to sustainability. We have been working on evolving a compostable packaging solution for years and this will be our first launch. I would like to thank the Brawny Bear team for their trust in us and for their desire to contribute towards a healthier and cleaner planet. We wish them all the success.”
