Innovation, sustainability and performance,
developed without comprimise.

Our new Crave range offers  fantastic performance while adhering to strict sustainability objectives.

Window options also benefit from added ventilation holes to prevent steam-build up and preserve visibility.

The inner coating has also been carefully developed and closely assessed to ensure an excellent level of resistance to penetrating moisture and oils.

Lastly, the double-tab closing mechanism provides a reliably secure fit while being extremely easy to use.

What do we really mean by 'sustainable'?

The Crave range offer numerous environmental advantages. The range is manufactured in the UK, dramatically reducing its production carbon footprint. Each of the range’s boxes are fully recyclable/’repulpable’ and are also industrially compostable. The containers are manufactured from lightweight fibres, driving resource efficiency and reducing the volume of raw materials required. In addition, this this fibres are derived from paper sourced from FSC-certified, European paper mills. The inner coating replaces traditional PET linings with an innovative emulsion-based coating. This coating is resistant to oils, grease and other sources of moisture whilst now being more widely accepted in standard recycling systems. Additionally, all ‘window’ options are made from NatureFlex™ by Futamura, a sustainable cellulose film that is home-compostable.

Crave’s fibres are derived from paper sourced from forests certified by the Forest Stewardship Council® . “The FSC label is the world’s most trusted mark for sustainable forestry” (fsc.org).

Window options are made from NatureFlex™ by Futamura, a sustainable cellulose film that is home-compostable. “These bio-films are based strongly on renewable resources ” (futamuragroup.com).

Each of the Crave range’s boxes are industrially compostable, providing an additional means of sustainable waste management once the produce reaches its end-of-life stage.

From the fibres utilised for each box to the inner coating and window options, the materials chosen for the Crave range ensure its compatibility with widespread UK recycling systems.
