Why Sustainable Packaging Matters

Our TrueRice philosophy is to honour the importance of taking care of our food, ourselves, and our planet. That’s why we chose to become a sustainable brand.

Why Sustainable Packaging is the Green Choice

Sustainability means working in balance with the environment. It not only looks at short term benefits, but it also examines how our choices impact the earth for generations to come. Our daily choices truly make a difference.

We live in a society where we have access to foods and products from around the world. Everything is right at our fingertips and can be shipped to our doors within a matter of days. While this system is incredibly convenient, it means that packaging materials can have a significant impact on the health of our planet.

We chose to use eco-friendly packaging materials at TrueRice because as we want to take care of the earth today and for the next generation.

What Makes a Packaging Material Sustainable?

There are several key factors that determine if a packaging material is sustainable. These are the
questions you need to ask to find out how green your packaging really is.

How is the packaging constructed?
You want packaging made from materials that are renewable or recycled.

How is it produced?
Look for a production process that minimizes environmental impact.

Is it biodegradable, reusable, or recyclable?
Sustainable packaging should be at least one of these things. Either it will easily biodegrade, is simple to reuse, or is made of recyclable materials.

Our TrueRice Sustainable Packaging

As a company who prioritizes green practices, we made sure that sustainable packaging was part of our promise to you.

Our rice is packaged in natural kraft paper. Our kraft paper is laminated, which means although it’s not biodegradable, it is 100% recyclable and is also landfill friendly.

We chose laminated kraft paper to balance sustainability with preserving the quality of our rice. In order to biodegrade, packaging has to be able to break down when exposed to light or air. However, this is exactly what you don’t want to happen when you’re packaging food.

One of the biggest advantages of our kraft paper pouches is they block out light and air. The laminated layers of barrier film with their opaque finish means your food is protected and preserved. This extends the shelf life of your food and protects it against spoilage or contact with harmful contaminants.

We take our sustainability promise even further by using shipping boxes that are made from recycled material.
