Booths On-The-Go Wrap Packaging

Booths, the award-winning sustainable retailer based in the North of England, are continually enhancing their environmental credentials. Booths wanted to re-package their range of on the go food wraps; they were looking for an environmentally friendly solution that would contribute towards better sustainability of their food packaging.






Our Approach

The Sherwood Group were able to meet Booths’ requirements by applying Puracoat®, an environmentally friendly, water-based barrier control, onto the wrap packaging as an effective alternative to film/plastic based options. Combined with biodegradable window material, we produced a truly sustainable packaging solution.
