Biotrē™ - Compostable Packaging Material by PBi



Our Biotrē™ product line started in 2011 as our starting point down the path of true sustainability, and our journey is far from over. At PBi we continue to expand our Biotrē™ films and with each film we develop we get closer to our simple goal; providing the industry with packaging that protects both product and the planet.


At TricorBraun Flex we are committed to pursuing sustainable packaging while offering structures that will protect your product. We are currently working on the next generation of sustainable options and are proud of our ongoing committment to our award winning Biotrē™ Packaging lines.
