From Farm to Packaging: How COPAR's Sustainable Practices Benefit Local Farmers

As the world becomes increasingly aware of the environmental impact of our daily choices, many companies are looking for ways to reduce their carbon footprint and make a positive impact on the planet. At COPAR, we believe that sustainability starts at the source, and that's why we're committed to supporting local farmers through our innovative approach to packaging.

Our manufacturing facility in Bathurst will commence commercial production from December this year and all our fibre-based packaging solutions will be made from locally sourced wheat straw, a by-product of wheat production. By using wheat straw to create our packaging, we are not only reducing waste but also supporting local farmers by providing a new source of revenue for this agricultural by-product.

The process of creating our wheat straw packaging begins at the farm level. Once the wheat is harvested, the straw is left behind as a by-product. This straw was traditionally burned or ploughed back into the ground as a way to dispose of it. However, COPAR saw an opportunity to repurpose this material into something useful and sustainable. 

By working directly with our local farmers, we're able to source the wheat straw directly from the fields, minimising transportation emissions and supporting the local economy. Our commitment to sustainable farming practices also extends to our manufacturing process. We have implemented a closed-loop system that allows us to continually recycle water and use offcuts from previous production to be re-entered into our production process, reducing waste and minimising our impact on the environment. 

In addition to supporting local farmers and reducing waste, our sustainable packaging solutions offer a range of benefits for businesses. Our wheat straw packaging will be certified compostable, meaning that they naturally degrade at the end of their life cycle, and doesn't harm the environment. This is especially important for businesses that rely on single-use packaging, such as the food and hospitality industry. 

Our innovative packaging also offers increased durability and protection for products, minimising the risk of damage or spoilage during transportation. This means that businesses can reduce their product loss and waste, resulting in cost savings and a more efficient supply chain.

At COPAR, we believe that sustainable packaging solutions are not only better for the environment but also better for businesses and the communities they serve. By supporting local farmers and reducing waste, we can create a more sustainable future for all. 

Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond our packaging solutions. We're also actively involved in promoting composting practices and supporting initiatives that promote environmental conservation. By working together with our partners, we can create a more sustainable future for generations to come.

COPAR's sustainable practices benefit local farmers by providing a new source of revenue for agricultural by-products and supporting sustainable farming practices. Our innovative packaging solutions also offer a range of benefits for businesses, including cost savings, increased durability and protection for products, and reduced environmental impact. By working together, we can create a more sustainable future for our planet and our communities.
