Our Members > Purple Planet Packaging LTD
Being fully independent allows Purple Planet Packaging to work freely with the world, leading specialist Eco-Friendly packaging manufacturers and UK importers. This allows us to offer over 400+ certified compostable products under one roof so we can recommend the most appropriate products without bias.
Here at Purple Planet, we recognise that in an ideal world everyone would use our eco products 100% of the time. However, for a variety of reasons, this isn’t always possible so we are also able to source and supply other products whilst encouraging you to try some of our comparable products so that the customer can see for themselves the quality and value our items represent.
With years of experience, and a family run business we are proud to supply the UK food-service industry, we fully understand the needs of the growing artisan cafe chain, the independent street-food vendor, the outdoor event caterer, and the food festival manager more than most when it comes to compostable catering disposables. Our plant-based products are made from annually renewable plant crops like corn, sugarcane, and potatoes. The waste materials from these crops (i.e., the natural starch produced from corn and the fibers from sugarcane known as bagasse) can all be made into packaging and are a great alternative to conventional petroleum-based plastics.
The products we sell are independently certified 100% compostable by world-recognised authorities including OK compost by Vincotte and The Biodegradable Product Institute (BPI). This allows our packaging to be disposed of with general food waste after use and processed back into natural compost in under 12 weeks at an approved composting facility.
Purple Planet Packaging stock the widest range of stock compostable catering disposables in the UK and offer custom printing together with a comprehensive bespoke packaging and design service.
Purple Planet Packaging customers benefit from ordering all their Eco-Friendly packaging from one place with no need to contact numerous different suppliers and factories. It also means customers receive one invoice with one payment and because of our buying power, Purple Planet Packaging can often broker better deals for our clients than if they went direct to the supplier or factory themselves.
Purple Planet Packaging has been working and developing products with some of the world‚ leading sustainable packaging manufacturers over the past few years. All our manufacturing partners are industry leaders in their respective specialist fields. Our fully compostable range is made from 100% plant-based materials including corn-starch (PLA/CPLA/RCPLA), sugarcane bagasse, paperboard, and birchwood from sustainably managed forests and recycled paper pulp.
