Packaging in Harmony with Nature
Shouldn’t your packaging reflect your sustainable practices? Nature-Pack™ insulated cold chain packaging for milk, yogurt, dairy, and cheese producers is packaging made with a purpose. Whether you’re looking to satisfy a need for an insulated takeaway or carry-out bag for your farm store, or desire a compostable shipping cooler for sending your organic dairy products. Nature-Pack™ products can help.
Our Raw materials are domestically sourced from non-GMO biomass feedstocks and do not compete with food sources. Being bio-based, they are naturally biodegradable upon disposal. Nature-Pack™ offers a compelling alternative to fossil-based packaging. With a short growth cycle, we produce sustainable materials annually that absorb CO2 and return it to through the composting process. Bio-based packaging offers dairy producers a way to keep their milk, cheese, or yogurt cold and fresh when shipping small parcels. Using dry ice or Nature-Ice refrigerants you can extend shipping times and ensure your products arrive within the precise tolerances that dairy producers demand.
Nature-Pack™ Biocooler® insulated shippers increase temperature controlled times by up to 30% over traditional fossil-based foams while providing a holistic recovery cycle. Save on shipping. Save your product. Save the environment.
Tips for Shipping Cheese
When you are sending hard or soft cheeses, it is important to protect the product from moisture within the pack out. You can achieve this by shielding the gel packs with plastic wrap, corrugated, or other dunnage. That way the chances any moisture dampens the cheese by osmosis is significantly reduced.
A good rule of thumb for gel pack quantities would be 2-3 pounds per 5 pounds of hard cheese.
Tips for Shipping Dairy
In general, dairy products are pasteurized to eliminate bacteria and make them safe to drink or eat. After pasteurization, it is important for all dairy products to remain under constant refrigeration to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria. Therefore, the safest temperature range for milk is between 32˚F and 40˚F during transit and storage. Contact us for help with your custom dairy-shipping needs.
