The success of the Chrysal Compostable sachet   

The success of the Chrysal Compostable sachet  

Last year Chrysal introduced an innovative compostable flower food sachet. The sachet is made of industrial compostable material which will result in a valuable reduction of plastic waste. Since the introduction the sachet has been a huge success with almost 1.5 million sachets sold so far, changing the flower industry for the better.

With the introduction of the Compostable Sachet, Chrysal is changing the flower industry and moving from plastic flower food packaging to a biodegradable alternative which results in a valuable reduction of plastic waste. The materials used to produce the Compostable Sachets are bio based and the sachet is industrial compostable. This means the packaging is compostable under high temperatures in the same time as a banana skin or orange peel. Using bio based materials means saving fossil resources by using biomass. The Compostable Sachet was nominated for a Greenovation Award 2019 by Royal Flora Holland, an award given to a sustainably produced product or concept. All Greenovation nominees will also be presented at the IPM Essen in January 28th till 31st.

Freddie’s Flowers was one of the first customers to introduce the compostable sachet. Freddie from Freddie’s Flowers: “Chrysal is an excellent partner in sustainability. They have created this new flower food packaging which decomposes in the same amount of time as a banana peel. The Compostable sachet goes really well with our flower box and is a very exciting addition to our product.” Do you want to know more about the story behind the Chrysal Compostable sachet?
