Giving confidence to Irish users that the product is compostable and is accepted in food waste bins
The Cré Compostable Certification Scheme is the only Irish scheme providing third party independent assessment that packaging is compostable in Ireland and is accepted in food waste bins (brown bins).
CONSUMERS NEED FOR THE SCHEME
Compostable packaging looks similar to disposable packaging and is easily confused. Clearly marked packaging indicating it is compostable is required so people know the correct bin to put it in.
PACKAGING COMPANIES NEED FOR THE SCHEME
There is a growing consumer demand for compostable packaging. However, there is great confusion as to what is compostable. A transparent certification scheme will develop and expand the packaging supply chain. When it comes to local market acceptance, a local certification scheme boosts consumers’ confidence and product acceptability.
BENEFITS OF THE CRÉ SCHEME
- Provides independent Irish certification to packaging manufacturers that their packaging is compostable in Ireland.
- Provides independent endorsement to packaging manufacturers’ customers that their products are compostable.
- Gives confidence to the public that products are legitimate and compostable in Ireland
