What specific plant-based material is used to create the compostable film?

The compostable film used in the GrainPro® Compostable Hermetic Pouch™ is made from a blend of eucalyptus, cassava, and sugarcane. The specific formulation may vary depending on material availability.

How to compost the GrainPro® Compostable Hermetic Pouch™?

The GrainPro® Compostable Hermetic Pouch™ decomposes much like regular organic materials, ultimately breaking down into nutrient-rich soil fertilizer in about 24 weeks, perfect for nurturing your garden or yard. To compost the pouch, begin by emptying its contents and cutting or tearing it into smaller pieces. Then, mix these fragments with other compostable items like food scraps and yard waste in your compost bin or pile. Remember to keep the compost moist and turn it regularly to aid in decomposition.

What happens if the GrainPro® Compostable Hermetic Pouch™ packaging ends up in the ocean, nature, or landfill?

When GrainPro® Compostable Hermetic Pouch™ are disposed of incorrectly in landfills, oceans, or natural settings, their breakdown process varies. In landfills, they might degrade slower and release greenhouse gasses as they decompose without oxygen. In natural environments like oceans or land, they tend to break down faster, helped by sunlight, moisture, and microorganisms. However, to ensure their eco-friendly benefits and avoid harm, it's crucial to focus on proper disposal methods like home composting.


What types of commodities can I store in the GrainPro® Compostable Hermetic Pouch™?

You can store a wide range of dry agricultural commodities in the GrainPro® Compostable Hermetic Pouch™, including grains, pulses, seeds, and spices. However, it is not suitable for fresh produce, flour, nuts, and other commodities with high oil content.

How long do commodities (i.e. green coffee beans) stay fresh in the GrainPro® Compostable Hermetic Pouch™?

Green coffee beans stored in the GrainPro® Compostable Hermetic Pouch™ with an oxygen barrier can typically retain their freshness for several months to a year, provided they are kept in ideal conditions away from heat, light, and moisture. The oxygen barrier within the pouch acts to prevent the ingress of oxygen, which could otherwise cause oxidation and degradation of the beans over time. While this technology significantly enhances preservation, it's important to understand that it doesn't completely halt the aging process. Additionally, the initial quality of the beans remains a crucial factor in determining their overall shelf life.

Will the GrainPro® Compostable Hermetic Pouch™ break down on the shelf?

No, the GrainPro® Compostable Hermetic Pouch™ is designed to remain stable while on the shelf for a period of twelve (12) months. As long as it is stored in a cool, dry environment, it will not start breaking down until it is introduced to the proper composting conditions, which include exposure to moisture and microbial activity.

What type of storage conditions does GrainPro® Compostable Hermetic Pouch™ film packaging need?
