Edible packaging

We are working on several ecological and sustainable development projects around the theme of packaging reduction, recycling and reuse.

This edible packaging designed by Nobuhiko Arika is an exciting opportunity to rethink conventional food packaging materials.

The plates and cutlery are made of flour, salt and water. They have a reasonable long shelf life and the unique advantage of being edible at the end of the meal. So zero waste.

Likewise Potatopak in New Zealand are developing potato starch based food packaging and containers.
