biofirst circular packaging and production

Circular packaging & production

Annually, we ship tens of thousands of packages with billions of insects and other beneficials, from our main office alone – to over 70 countries worldwide. Every day we aim to deliver the best quality products in the best quality packaging. This means providing our insects and mites with optimal temperature, air quality and nutrients fit to their needs.

A lot of these products have a highly limited shelf life, which is why we ship a lot of out products by air freight. This also means we have the opportunity to keep environmental and shipping costs low, by minimizing weight and volume. And additionally, we want to use packaging that is easily recycled or reused by our customers and preferably made from a renewable and biobased materials. By 2030 we aim to be rid of all fossil based packaging, such as Styrofoam and plastics.

These are all logical and sensible choices for Biofirst Group, but quite the technical challenge for our team. It is a combined effort of our packaging and logistics experts, business development team, sales representatives in the field, quality control and R&D experts, to come up with the best tailor-made solutions.

Biofirst is greatly invested to come up with innovative packaging solutions, as they have a big impact on out total use of resources, the Styrofoam and plastics traditionally used have a big environmental impact and it has a big impact on the user friendliness of our product and the waste generated for our customers. Our packaging is the first and last thing customers see of our products: it is our business card.

This is why we are continuously looking for biodegradable alternatives to our packaging, biobased alternatives, reducing volume and weight of our packages. We also cooperate locally, to collect our packaging from customers, or to have the same amount of packaging recycled that we put into the market.
