Organic vegetable and fruit provider Nature & More has rolled out packaging derived from sugar cane for its products.

The company has been working for two years along with its suppliers in order to develop the new plastic-free packaging materials. It uses the ‘trace & tell’ system of European organic fruit and vegetable distributor Eosta.

The new compostable Eosta / Nature & More sugar cane tray packaging is similar to fine cardboard and made of waste material. It is 100% gentech free and tree-friendly.

Nature & More packaging expert Paul Hendriks said: "We are now selling organic vine tomatoes, pears and physalis packed with the sugarcane materials and our customers are very pleased with the first results."

Carrefour, a supermarket chain in France, is one of its first clients to pack its organic fruit and vegetables with the new materials.

Carrefour product manager Julie Mahmoun said: "We encourage our suppliers to minimise the environmental footprint of packaging by focusing on recycling and working with renewable and waste materials."
