About us

Eko Pak is a division of Vacpack, a New Zealand owned and family managed business. We are a subsidiary of our sister company D&L Packaging which has been successfully growing and supporting its clients for the past 20 years. 

Vacpack is a food packaging company in Auckland that provides products and services throughout NZ, offering food processing and food service companies the ability to effectively manage their time and in-house processes through our innovative packaging & processes to reduce food waste. 

We found Eko Pak from an existing suppler and it fits the mould of many of our customers and goes with the green future we are all working towards.

Our trays are compostable. What does that mean exactly?

Eko friendly packaging

by definition Eko Pak’s range of products can be easily recycled, is safe for the environment and people and is made out of recycled resins. It has minimal impact on energy usage and natural resources.

Compostable packaging breaks down and returns to nature, a short time after going to waste, normally within 1 year.

Compostable packaging

is identical to biodegradable packaging, but it has an extra feature. Not only does it break down within 45-60 days, it also creates compost which is full of nutrients and very good for plants and earth. Compostable is biodegradable with a nature friendly bonus!

The place for plastic packaging

is not in the environment. Unfortunately, in some applications (such as food needing shelf life), plastic cannot be made compostable. Barrier plastics are still needed to keep food longer and fresher and it’s economically not feasible (yet) to work with compostable barrier plastics. But where possible, we should keep plastic where it should be, in the circular economy where it can be used again and again, recycled or even used as compost, such as our Eko Pak trays.
