Innovation

Innovation is at the heart of our business and we seek to offer products that are the best they can be - both now and in the future. We are always on the lookout for further ways to fine-tune each and every one of the items in our extended product range. Performance, sustainability, look and competitive pricing are always top of our check list.

For example, in 2010 Planglow launched a new bio lid and cup offering having recognized a significant market-need for compostable disposable cups and lids. The products were twelve months in development to ensure they met our high expectations for performance, value and of course compostability. Both the lids and cup lining are made from a food safe corn-based ASTM certified compostable material. They are completely free from oil based plastics. The double walled design provides greater insulation than a single walled cup and we have also moved from a rippled to a ribbed product to offer better print quality too. They were - and still are - a relatively unique offering as one of the first compostable cups on the market.

Our commitment to innovation continued in 2012 - 2013 with the introduction of a plant-based bio laminate to our food containers - the latest development in the on-going evolution of our products. We are the only company currently offering items lined with this innovative material which enhances overall performance and structure; potentially extending the shelf life of sandwiches, wraps, salads and other foods they may contain. What’s more, it is fully certified to the American ASTM D6400 standards for compostable packaging, and is also certified as home compostable. This means that Planglow products biodegrade in a waste water environment and can be disposed of in a home compost heap.
