January 16, 2023

This week we are featuring one of our flexible packaging products, the CLAF® Bio Fabric™ Pillow Pack. This mesh is made with resins derived from renewably sourced sugarcane. Designed for vertical form, fill, and seal equipment. This popular bag style is strong, breathable, and has unique properties that raise it above other mesh products.

Sustainably Made Mesh

Consumer demand is rising for environmentally responsible and sustainable products, including packaging. CLAF® Bio Fabric™ is made with resins derived from renewably sourced sugarcane.

Not only does sugarcane capture CO2 as it grows, but unlike oil and natural gas, sugarcane is renewable because it regenerates quickly. This material has physical and chemical properties that are similar to petroleum-based plastic, but the process of making it is more sustainable.

As certified on its USDA BioPreferred® Product label, CLAF® Bio Fabric™ is derived from 96% plant-based materials. It is strong, breathable, and has unique properties that raise it above other mesh products. Like the original CLAF®, this mesh is also available in multiple colors.

Produce bags made with CLAF® Bio Fabric™ provide a more sustainable alternative to packaging fruits and vegetables. CLAF® offers protection and breathability, perfect to keep produce fresh while being more eco-friendly with a biobased, renewable, and recyclable source. As consumer demand for more environmentally responsible and sustainable products rise, CLAF® Bio Fabric™ is a perfect fit for a variety of packaging solutions.
