Recently, we have been getting more and more questions about what we are doing to help preserve the environment, particularly to do with the packaging of our product NutriKane D. Although we hope to revolutionise the healthcare system of Australia, it is very important we also do our part in helping the environment. Initially, NutriKane D was produced and packed in bags. Being light and low density, we ran into problems with consumers; people weren’t getting the right dose amount with every scoop. This became a problem as people were either having too much or little of the product. This inspired the idea to have each serve come in an easy to use sachet.

Every box of NutriKane D comes with 28 sachets, and does not in bulk form. All NutriKane sachets are made from layers of PET, foil, and LLDPE. All of these materials are recyclable, while maintaining a high barrier to maintain product stability & efficacy. 

  • PET  - Polyethylene Terephthalate, known commonly as PET or PETE is best known as the clear plastic used for water and soda bottle containers. As a raw material, PET is globally recognized as a safe, non-toxic, strong, lightweight, flexible material that is 100% recyclable. Recycling number 1.
  • Foil - Aluminium Foil – Clean (unspoiled by food), intact foil is recyclable.
  • LLDPE – Linear Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE) is 100% recyclable. Recycling number 4.

We are always looking at better ways to improve the brand, whether it be the product itself, or the packaging it came in.
