Kraft vs. Printed Kraft-look Paper Products

We supply a number of unbleached kraft paper products. Where real kraft paper or board is not available we offer a printed kraft-look pattern for range consistency.


We use a printed kraft pattern on our 4oz, 6oz and 8oz 90mm Kraft Green Stripe cups and on all sizes of the Kraft Green Line cups.
 
The reasons we sometimes print a kraft-look pattern onto bleached white paper is either due to the fact that unbleached kraft paper is stiffer than bleached kraft paper and it doesn't form as well on the smaller cup diameters, or as in the case of the following BioBoard range we are unable to source FSC certified unbleached kraft board and we believe the paper source is more important than the paper colour.

Our food service ware is the only packing in Australia that is certified carbon neutral. All compostable packaging is INDEPENDENTLY CERTIFIED  – offering an opportunity to divert waste from landfill. Our inks are soy or water-based. All our product certifications are available on our website.
 
All our BioCups and paper board products are made from elemental chlorine free (ECF) bleached fibre. Elemental chlorine free (ECF) is a technique that uses chlorine dioxide for the bleaching of wood pulp. It does not use elemental chlorine gas during the bleaching process and prevents the formation of dioxins and dioxin-like compounds and carcinogens.
