Ronpak keeps moving forward with sustainability-driven, renewable green solutions for food service packaging and distribution.

the era of "Eco" Expectations.

From nationwide brands to smaller, more localized clientele, food brands have come to expect more efforts from their vendor suppliers to produce a superior package product with an emphasis on better, more sustainable manufacturing methods. With national media & news frequently highlighting the detrimental effects of all things “single use”, large food brands, industrial food converters, and food packagers face significant pushback (from consumers and customers alike) when utilizing materials proven to be unacceptable for their negative long-term environmental impact. ‘Single Use’ plastic products such as grocery bags are quickly being eclipsed by more earth-friendly innovations in the food packaging space, while new legal regulations across the country are tightening their bans against plastics use, levying fines and in some cases completely eliminating those petroleum-based products that have little to no chance of reasonable decomposition.

Ronpak is a collective of amazing people committed to keeping our Earth...clean.

More than ever before, end-consumers and big food brands themselves are focused on supporting suppliers actively working to better manage their efforts to adhere to environmentally-mindful and eco-friendly manufacturing. Today’s consumer is sharply aware of how they eat, what they eat, what they waste and which organizations are helping – rather than harming – our shared environment.

For years, Ronpak has demonstrated its eco-friendly commitment to producing unique and effective food packaging for its customers. As an environmentally sound food packaging leader, Ronpak has achieved this benchmark following its own set of corporate initiatives thoughtfully designed to meet or exceed industry regulations such as adhering to the specifications of BPI for compostability testing and membership in the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI). Ronpak’s own internal sustainability goals have detailed a roadmap to complete environmental paper manufacturing compliance by 2020.

Food brand customers expect and demand environmentally friendly packaging. Ronpak delivers on that promise using its’ three coastal US locations to better coordinate supplies and deliver from closer warehousing, resulting in less fuel consumed.

Eco-conscious consumers can be confident that each stage of package production follows precise procedures to track raw materials, minimize waste  & consume production resources more efficiently.



Unique end-consumer packaging helps promote your brand. Ronpak specializes in security or various game promotions, using the bag itself as the vehicle which engages, educates, and delights your customer.

Many customers actively seek fiber-based solutions for their new packaging, be it paperboard or natural molded-pulp packaging. The food industry is slowly pushing longstanding foam packaging into the past. Both natural molded and paper packaging offer a great deal of functionality and strength including in many cases the “microwavability” or “ovenability” for the end user. Stronger paper packaging also allows for more durable containers where delivery is a concern. Additionally, kraft products offer an immediate “visual cue of sustainability” as their end user perceives kraft packaging as growing to be synonymous with the environment. End-user customers are more likely to reward innovative kraft paper brands with their loyalty and – their share of the revenue.

1. Utilizing eco-packaging lowers your carbon footprint, meaning fewer carbon emissions during production. Smaller footprints equal less consumption of energy-heavy resources such as water, inks, electricity, and waste processing.
3. Green packaging materials are healthier for manufacturers – and consumers, too. Eco-packaging materials don’t carry harmful chemical by-products that often carry health risks.
2. Simpler disposal. Unlike lots of other packaging varieties, eco-packaging is recyclable and often repurposed (or composted) depending upon its’ biodegradability, for which Ronpak constantly tests.
4. A corporate commitment to sustainability establishes manufacturers as environmentally & socially conscious. Eco-friendly packaging helps converters like Ronpak become and remain a conscious supplier, immediately giving consumers the best first impression of a product.
Studies demonstrate customers feel more positively about a company or brand purposefully using green packaging. As an established solid supplier with stable ownership since 1947, Ronpak manufactures a wide assortment of carry-out/merchandise paper bags and food wraps with a large array of sizes, finishes, and substrates.



Biodegradability is now the norm instead of the exception. How can you tell if a food product container is degradable or compostable? Ask the manufacturer for their third-party accreditation. This third party qualifier provides the package manufacturer with certified, independent laboratory compostability testing results – some of which could take over a year to complete. Ronpak’s food packaging products must be compostable in addition to retaining their recyclable capacity in accordance with recognized requirements. Additionally, any Ronpak supplier must meet all FDA requirements relating to the biodegradability of their source products. Consequently, Ronpak suppliers must submit their “Letter of Guarantee”, demonstrating every supplier’s FDA compliance. For each Ronpak supplier of record, those supply sources have stated and subsequently proved they meet or exceed all FDA & government requirements with respect to food-based paper packaging products. Ronpak enlists the Compostability testing services of BPI – North America’s leading certifier of compostable products and packaging to review and certify that all Ronpak-produced client-food packaging containers and paper products adhere to the compostable requirements now demanded of food packaging sources. Compostability starts when a packaging product reaches the “end of life”; for Ronpak-produced packaging, the bag artwork carries the “Compostable” logo and the “How-2-Recycle” stamp. These marks indicate to consumers the degree of compostability that has been reached and serve to educate the end-consumer on how to properly manage disposal after use. QR block codes educate consumers about post-use recycling.



China’s new import restrictions on recycled commodities have actually triggered a basic interruption in global supply chains for scrap products. This modification shows up mere days after President Trump pushed US trade representatives to levy tariffs on a minimum of $50 billion worth of Chinese imports. China’s commerce division has actually threatened to act against the US via the WTO (World Trade Organization) along with the profiling and targeting of over 100 American products for even higher import tolls. China has been by far the largest importer of US recyclables. 

The banning of American junk imports will have a significant impact on the US labor market and will likely drive up waste management costs. According to the US Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) in 2016 alone, American scrap exports to China totaled $5.6 billion and provided the industry with 155,000 jobs. If China shuts down its waste management market, then US recycling centers will face a tough choice: hire a more expensive workforce (in turn raising their prices), force American households to sort their own trash AND increase US landfills across the country. Beijing warned that “the American consumers and enterprises will bear the brunt” of a trade war with China. Rather than depend upon plastics-based products, Ronpak’s kraft paper packaging solutions bring actual recyclability to the bottom line by using environmentally-conscious practices to manufacture good, sustainable products.
