Moreish Home Compostable Packaging
UPDATE: Due to delays in Production lines, under the current climate Moreish will be unable to supply in Home Compostable bags until further notice, We are working tirelessly to remedy this as soon as possible.
We appreciate your understanding.
From mid August 2019, we are proud to shout from the roof tops that 95% of our bags will be replaced with our new fully home compostable packaging! This means all you have to do is simply remove any stickers from the packet, throw it in your compost bin or worm farm and wait for it to 'do it's thing'!
We think they look pretty swish! Don't you?
Our bags are fully home compostable

How long will certified home compostable packaging take to break down in a home compost?
Every home compost is different, and as such the answer to this is variable depending on the format and management of a home compost. Different composts will run at different levels of temperature, moisture and microbial activity. In order for a product to be certified home compostable it must disintegrate in 6 months and completely biodegrade in 12 months, at an average temperature of 30°C.
Will a home or commercially compostable package break down in landfill conditions?
Each landfill is different from one another so there is no uniform answer to this. However it is safe to say that in the majority of landfills, a compostable plastic may not break down properly or in the same timeframe as in a compost. Landfill waste is often anaerobic, and compostable packaging will only breakdown in the right conditions of heat, moisture, oxygen and microbial activity. Moreish’s home compostable packaging has been developed to be composted, if sent to landfill it will likely start the process of decomposing slowly but it is hard to put a timeframe on that.

Organic farming is a proactive approach to farming, focusing on long-term sustainability of our Eco-system. Our farmers are forward-thinking. They strive to improve the quality of their soil, water and other aspects of their farm that are negatively affected by harsh synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Organic farming can help to reduce the effect of greenhouse gases through the ability to store carbon in the soil. We care about our planet, and supporting organic farming is one of a number of small things you can do to play your part in preserving it for future generations.To note also our beef,lamb & chicken are raised on Certified Organic farms, Accredited with either Assure quality or Biogro nz, once they reach our premises the product is no longer "certified" organic, simply organic. We are currently working through the process to become a certified premises / handling facility. Any questions please don't hesitate to contact the team
