Biotrē: Compostable Biodegradable Packaging | TricorBraun Flex

Biotrē

The Biotrē™ product line began in 2011 as TricorBraun Flex’s starting point down the path of true sustainability, and our journey is far from over. The Biotrē™ material allows us to provide wholesale environmentally friendly coffee bags and compostable packaging to customers across the country. At TB Flex, we continuously expand our Biotrē™ product line to provide even more compostable and biodegradable packaging options to our clients. With each product we develop, we get closer to our simple goal; providing the industry with packaging that protects both product and the planet.

Commitment

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