A new sustainable packaging for avocados

Oppy, Avoworks and Eco Farms, companies that teamed up in early 2022 to address the issue of avocado packaging, have announced the launch of compostable packaging for this fruit. Unlike other compostable options that require industrial facilities, this packaging is certified for home composting. Both the mesh and the label are made from beech wood cellulose and decompose in just 12 weeks. Pedro Somarriba, president of Avoworks, praised this innovation as an easy solution that meets environmental requirements.
