Wheat Straw Packaging

Made the Australian Way

Australian Owned + Sourced + Manufactured

Sustainable Packaging, made the Australian way

Copar is Australian owned, sourced and made - making our supply chain local, efficient and fast to market, whilst stimulating the local economy.

Our manufacturing facility opens in Bathurst in 2023, and will use Australian sourced and made packaging products.

We also have a research and development partnership with the Global Innovative Centre for Advanced Nanomaterials at the University of Newcastle, which continues to drive packaging innovation and benefits to the wider industry.

We are working with our local and international partners to employ cutting edge technologies to produce truly circular sustainable packaging solutions from Australian farmers’ agro waste – an Australian first!

Once our facility opens in 2023, our products will be made from locally sourced wheat-straw that are compostable and biodegradable, allowing early access to our Australian Made products. We are dedicated to help our people and the planet by providing innovative sustainable packaging products.

Our Vision

Create a world where single use packaging never becomes waste or pollution.

We live in one of the most beautiful and biodiverse regions in the world. At COPAR, we believe it’s our responsibility to protect it, one sustainable package at a time.
