All these pre-prepared and packaged food products can be packed in attractive compostable packaging solutions.

Some of the options include pillow bags, bar wrappers, side gusset pouches, and zipper bags. Even stand-up pouches are great for packing snacks, condiments, and certain dry food products. Lidding laminates can be used to cover punnets and trays that contain fruits, vegetables, or even prepared food items.

2. To pack food products on an as-needed basis
