Our company is an Australian owned family business. It was founded by Peter, who spent several years after university working overseas, only to return to Australia with a renewed appreciation of our beautiful country. It’s certain things you really value after years away… the amazingly unique flora and fauna, sounds of rain on the tin roof, the smell of a freshly cut lawn, and summer rain on the road…
Shaped by this experience, Peter became passionate about ensuring Australians have access to world class products, which make it easier for everyone to live more sustainably, and so protect our unique country.
So, after a few years of research, many prototypes, and even more sleepless nights for his entire growing family, the Compost-A-Pak® brand was born.
Peter now works (mostly) harmoniously with his wife, who he convinced to leave a corporate career to join the cause. The brainstorming now happens in a bright green warehouse in Newcastle, with an extremely talented, diverse team, where many of our products are now designed from initial sketches to world class products. We are all very proud to have grown into one of Australia’s leading suppliers of compostable products…
The magic organic ingredient used in Compost-A-Pak® products is corn. We choose corn as it is an annually renewable crop. Unlike trees, corn can re-grow and be harvested in a single season.
The actual crops are deliberately sourced from international GMO-free regions with high levels of rain, to minimise any irrigation. In addition, the actual corn kernels selected are classified as third grade corn. This spoilt corn is not suitable for human or animal consumption, so even the chooks don’t miss out!
