Company: Planglow USA, St. Paul, MN


Packaging Snapshot: Planglow USA has introduced a heavy-duty, natural hoagie bag. The bag is made from thick Kraft paper with a moisture-resistant coating. A large window makes it easy to see the sandwich, while labels from the company’s Natural Collection can be used to seal the bag. All Planglow USA packaging is made from 100 percent biodegradable and compostable materials. Each product is laminated with a home-compostable, plant-based film that forms the window and provides a barrier. The plant-based laminate is derived from renewable plants and is fully certified to the European (EN13432) and American (ASTM D6400) norms for compostable packaging by Vincotte, Din Certco and BPI.
