Our biobased Ben

Innovative material

With Ben's biobased PLA film made from renewable raw materials (e.g. from sugar cane or corn starch), we reduce the use of conventional plastic made from petroleum. This means: The packaging reduces additional CO2 emissions!

Resource-saving form of packaging

Ben consumes up to 60% less CO2 than glass jars or cans in its life cycle as pouch packaging. It is also light-weight and space-saving in transport – so more packaging can be transported at once. Speaking of transport: We produce exclusively from Europe.
Biodegradable packaging as an Stand-up pouch

Food grade

You need robust protection for your product – Ben provides that for you. It has laboratory-tested protective properties against external influences. It is particularly adequate when you need high UV protection.

High-quality design

Our biobased Ben convinces with its matt surface and fine paper structure. You can design the full surface according to your wishes – and thanks to small minimum order quantities of 500 pieces, you can flexibly adapt the design at any time!

This is how our biobased packaging reduces additional CO2 emissions!

Crude oil is used to manufacture conventional plastic packaging. CO2 that is millions of years old is bound in this oil. By burning the plastics, the CO2 contained in the oil is also released into the atmosphere.

In contrast, starch from plants is used for the production of packaging made of bioplastics. Plants need CO2 for their growth, which they take from the atmosphere. When the bioplastics are burned, only as much CO2 is released as was previously absorbed by the plant. This creates a kind of CO2 cycle. In this way, our bio packaging Ben helps to reduce additional CO2 emissions and protect our environment.

Potential to promote the biological circular economy
Ben consists of the bioplastic PLA (polylactide, i.e. polylactic acid), which meets all the requirements for compostable bag packaging according to DIN standard 13432. Even if the packaging is basically suitable for composting, it is still difficult to implement in practice. Only when individual countries decide to enable their sorting and composting plants for composting bioplastics can they also be recycled in a meaningful way. Ben therefore belongs in the residual waste and, like all paper/plastic composites, is thermally recycled. It releases significantly less additional CO2 than conventional non-recyclable plastic packaging.

Fully printed in a kraft paper look: design options for your eco friendly packaging

The packaging is the figurehead for your product & your brand – that's why we do not have design restrictions! You can print our environmentally friendly organic pouches all over from a small order of 500 pieces. The implementation of the popular and matt kraft paper look is also no problem! Easily integrate your design into our template and surprise your customers with unique, individual product packaging! 
The most frequently asked questions about our bio packaging Ben
Ben has excellent protective properties against UV radiation and a good basic protection against oxygen and moisture. This packaging is therefore suitable for numerous products such as sugar substitutes, sweets and all forms of muesli such as granola, oatmeal and porridge. Ben is also very suitable as a refill bag for capsules or tea.
The material is less suitable for cosmetics or coffee. For heavy products such as protein powder, we recommend that you carry out a filling test.

Our eco friendly packaging can be printed on the full surface from a quantity of 500 pieces. The surfaces can be designed in a matt kraft paper look so that the packaging immediately catches the eye of your customers on the product shelf!
Ben is equipped with a tear notch and a self-seal so that your customers can easily open and securely close the packaging. Even an euro hole to hang up in the shop is no problem. You can order the FSC® seal from the Forest Stewarship Council® organisation for sustainable forest management directly in the shop and integrate it into your design. Ben does not have the option of an aroma valve.
You can fill and seal our “biodegradable Ben” both by machine and by hand. It can also be sealed at the top edge.
Compared to conventional plastic packaging, biodegradable packaging reduces additional CO2 emissions and promotes the biological recycling economy.
Most bioplastics (including the PLA bioplastic used for Ben) are basically suitable for composting. If individual countries decide to enable their sorting and composting plants to compost bioplastics, these can also be recycled in a meaningful way. In practice, however, this is still difficult, so that such plastics usually end up in the waste incineration plant.
Our Ben material is made from environmentally friendly paper that is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) organisation for sustainable forest management. Our bag packaging is resource-saving in production, consumes little CO2 in transport due to its low volume and weight and is manufactured exclusively in Europe. This keeps transport routes short and the CO2 footprint small.
