Moulded Fibre

Moulded fibre pulp is the most environmentally friendly material for packaging as it derives from natural and renewable materials. Made from waste cardboard and paper, our pulp is made from recycled materials, giving new life to unused paper/cardboard waste. All our moulds can be recycled (again) or naturally disposed of without damaging the planet, being 100% compostable and biodegradable.

The moulds are made by combining water and recycled paper/cardboard to create a fibrous pulp. This wet pulp is then ‘formed and pressed’ and then dried to give strength and rigidity. Throughout this process there are extensive QC protocols in place to ensure each product meets the high standards we expect from every one of our products. Ensuring the uppermost quality and consistency for every pallet produced.

Working with our strategic partner we use the latest technology and state of the art machinery for the design and production of our products. This enables us to create high quality, consistent packaging.

SUSTAINABILITY: Moulded fibre pulp is considered an environmentally friendly material because it is made from recycled paper waste or renewable plant fibers such as bamboo, sugarcane, or wheat straw. It reduces the demand for virgin materials and helps in diverting waste from landfills.

BIO-DEGRADABLE: One of the significant advantages of moulded fibre pulp is its biodegradability. It naturally decomposes over time, making it a perfect substitute to plastic or styrofoam packaging, which can take hundreds of years to break down.

RECYCLABLE: Moulded fibre pulp is recyclable and can be reprocessed into new pulp or paper products. Recycling it helps close the loop and further reduces waste generation.
Renewable Resource: As mentioned earlier, moulded fibre pulp can be made from renewable plant fibers. These fibers can be harvested and replenished relatively quickly, making it a sustainable choice for packaging materials.
Insulation Properties: Moulded fibre pulp has inherent insulation properties, which can provide thermal protection for temperature-sensitive products during transit.

CUSHIONING & PROTECTION: The fibrous structure of moulded fibre pulp absorbs and reduces the impact of shocks and vibrations, making it ideal for protecting fragile items during shipping or transportation. It helps prevent damage and reduces the risk of breakage. Making it ideal for liquid based and fragile products, like those used in the paint, drinks, food and horticulture industries.

LIGHTWEIGHT: Despite its protective capabilities, moulded fibre pulp is lightweight compared to other packaging materials such as plastic or metal. This lightweight nature can help reduce shipping costs and minimize the environmental impact associated with transportation.

VERSATILITY: Moulded fibre is a very versatile material and can be produced in many different shapes and sizes to satisfy the extensive range of products on the market. It is highly suitable for protective packaging uses, being a first choice packaging for many products.

Moulded pulp is the perfect packaging solution for the planet’s need to be sustainable and carbon neutral, as it allows businesses to replace their current non-recyclable plastic packaging with an environmentally sustainable option. For more information about why plastic is not a suitable long-term solution for the planet, please read our blog about sustainable solutions.

"Amazing help to support our operation"

Before working with EGI, we were using plastic packaging to help deliver goods to our customers, so are very happy to have found a sustainable and innovative packaging solution that performs much better. The pulp packaging is more environmentally friendly as it is made from 100% recycled materials which has enabled us to substantially reduce our plastic waste, which supports our sustainability ethos. Using this new product was made easy by EGI who offer a next day delivery service and even helped us plan weeks in advance for re-stocks to be delivered during our peak period. The EGI team are always easy to contact on the phone to help support our operation of delivering fine wines and spirits around the world.
