NC Custom eco-packaged treats

NC Custom is offering a lineup of products with packaging made from compostable or post-consumer recycled materials.

NC Custom’s inaugural lineup of Eco-Digibags, Eco-Boxes, Wrapper Bar in a Box and Fairtrade treats includes 24 SKUs spanning confectionery, chocolate and snack categories. The Eco-Digibags are made from 100% compostable materials, certified for home composting, and printed with water-based ink. The Eco-Boxes consist of 80% post-consumer recycled (PCR) hemp paperboard with the contents inside bagged in a compostable Eco-Digibag. The Wrapper Bar in a Box includes a wrapper made from 80% PCR hemp paper.

In addition, NC Custom offers ethically sourced Fairtrade cocoa products with packaging made from compostable materials.

Supporting Fairtrade ensures farmers receive fair wages, encouraging sustainable practices and community development, according to NC Custom. The supplier noted that it also helps to combat widespread issues like poverty, deforestation, gender inequality, child labor and forced labor, all while promoting a sustainable future for cocoa farming.

In addition to the new sustainable product line, NC Custom notes that it’s committed to environmental stewardship in multiple other ways, including the 100% solar-powered manufacturing facility it operates in Hicksville, NY. Its facilities also undergo SEDEX audits to ensure social accountability. Plus, the supplier notes, it actively participates in Fairtrade initiatives and integrates post-consumer recycled materials into product lines beyond packaging.

NC Custom ranks 22nd on Counselor’s most recent list of the top suppliers in the industry, with 2022 North American promotional products revenue of $77 million.
