Where do you really bake the biscuits ?

How are the biscuits wrapped?
Sustainability is very important to us, which is why we decided to offer reusable packaging (OPP material) as well as organic films for our personalized biscuits.
The bio films are entirely made of renewable raw materials (according to certificates EN13432, EN14995, ASTM, D6400 and ISO17088), and in contrast to conventional plastic films (OPP), they are biodegradable and convince with an excellent oxygen barrier, and therefore offer a sophisticated aroma protection, which is also supplemented by a proven functional barrier against MOSH / MOAH migration (confirmed to have a protective effect of > 5 years). More information can be found here.
The biscuits can be packed individually, in pairs or in bundles of six biscuits (this option is only possible for packaging in OPP material), and are then placed in our biscuit box. Whether recyclable or biodegradable, choose the right packaging tailored to your needs!
The other types of biscuits in bags of 100g and 200g are packed in OPP cellophane.
What does "biodegradable" mean?
Biodegradable means that a material or product is made from biological raw materials such as paper or plants and disintegrates over time into natural components. Bioplastics are available in a multitude of forms: Made from new materials such as PLA (starch materials), cellulose or bio-based variants of conventional plastics such as bio-PE or bio-PET.
Is a biodegradable product also compostable?
That depends on how long it takes for the product to break down completely. There are biological products that are compostable. These only need 6 months to be completely dismantled.
How should be disposed the bio-film?
In any in-house compost can the films decompose on their own within six months. Should you not have any compost at hand, conventional ways such as the yellow bag or residual waste are the best choices for the disposal. The film is thermally recycled - no harmful substances are released when burned!
What does OPP mean?
OPP packaging is a reusable and environmentally friendly plastic material that is food-safe, a special film made from polypropylene (PP). Alongside polyethylene (PE), polypropylene is one of the most frequently used plastics for packaging. OPP (also PP-O) stands for "oriented polypropylene".
And what material are the biscuit-boxes made of?
Our cardboard biscuit boxes are recyclable and made in Germany. They entirely come from FSC®-certified and sustainable forestry.
The shipping material consists of two-corrugated FSC®-certified packaging cardboard, as well as organic packaging chips and paper for the filling.
