In a collaborative effort, flexible packaging specialist Parkside has partnered with artisanal tea brand Hoogly to create a compostable envelope for a new range of individually wrapped teabags tailored for the hotel and hospitality industry.

The innovative solution utilizes a laminate that merges Parkside’s compostable Park2Nature™ material with a high-performance metallised compostable film, NatureFlex™ NM, obtained from film specialist Futamura. The resulting envelopes, certified as home compostable by TÜV, offer exceptional barrier performance to preserve the freshness of Hoogly’s tea and retain the aromatic qualities of each blend.

TÜV certification signifies that the pack has undergone rigorous testing and will biodegrade in domestic compost heaps within 26 weeks, and within 12 weeks in an industrial composting facility. This certification aligns with Hoogly’s sustainability objectives to minimize the environmental impact of its packaging.

Staci Bye, Sales Account Manager at Parkside, emphasized the company’s commitment to meeting the unique requirements of each customer in packaging projects. “We are pleased to have fulfilled this objective with a sustainably developed design that provides the necessary barrier performance to preserve the freshness of the teabags,” said Bye.

Initially available in three distinct designs featuring vibrant colors to differentiate tea flavors – English breakfast, mint, and green tea – these teabags can be found in rooms at more than 50 sites across the UK within Pride of Britain’s upscale hotel portfolio.

Paul Turner, Director at Hoogly, highlighted the brand’s dedication to ESG commitments and ethical sourcing practices. “By partnering with Parkside to produce this compostable packaging for our teabags, we ensure that our products meet our high quality and performance standards,” Turner noted.
