Hong Kong-based Biopack Environmental Solutions manufactures 100% biodegradable consumer packaging products from locally available sugar cane waste called bagasse. The company’s products are manufactured in China and distributed under the “Roots Biopack” trademark. Biopack’s unique line of compostable packaging is currently sold in 12 European countries plus the United States and Canada.

The company announced today that, as part of its ongoing expansion efforts, it has entered into its first distribution agreement in Canada with Sonray Sales Ltd. Founded more than 30 years ago, Sonray provides a long-term, loyal commitment to the product lines it represents. Since its inception, Sonray has developed a strong client roster of wholesalers, retailers, supermarket-chains, and food service providers throughout Canada and abroad.

The agreement fits well with the strategies of both companies. Sonray is looking to fill the growing demand from Canadian consumers for “green” packaging solutions, and Biopack can help them meet the growing demand. As Jeff Hornell, head of sales for Sonray, stated, “Biopack’s ability to supply this growing need in customizable forms is an asset.”

Biopack Environmental is looking to expand the distribution of their environmentally-friendly products globally and Sonray can help them. Gerald Lau, CEO of Biopack, said the following, “It was important for Biopack to find a partner that has established a high level of distribution and support that customer’s demand. Sonray will be an excellent partner in developing and opening key market channels for our line of sustainable packaging solutions.”
