Proper Compostable Range Keeps Growing

Hard to believe that this time last year, we were getting ready to launch our very first Home Compostable bag! Now, fast-forward 12 months, and we are Properly proud to have 7 bags in our range. Still early days, but great to see more people trying compostable packaging. So, a big Proper thanks to our fans who have supported the start of this journey! 

If you are looking for any composting tips or further information about our bags, head on over to the FAQs section of our website to learn more. We are always here for your questions and comments - so don't be shy to reach out. If you have any Proper Compostable success stories or photos, we would love to hear from you.

Proper Crisps x Garage Project Collaboration is Beer-y Good!

Sitting down one Friday, two iconic Kiwi brands shared a few beers and a packet of crisps and decided to create something epic. Nelson-based Proper Crisps and Te Aro brewery Garage Project have put their heads together to bring New Zealander’s the first ever Beer Crisps and Crisp Beers.

The savoury, umami taste is a mash-up of natural yeast, molasses, and sprinkling of maca root powder. The finishing touch is the fresh, hoppy flavour from locally grown Nelson Sauvin hops. Vegan and Gluten Free, this moreish crisp is just as crunchy as it is smooth! These Beer Crisps come in home compostable packaging, made from a mix of GMO-free corn sugars and wood pulp. These bags will break down in 6-12 months in home compost conditions.

Compost Tips

Here's a Proper tip! Fill your empty Compostable bags with veggie scraps, and just pop the whole thing in your Compost Bin when it's full. We think it's a brilliantly simple idea. You can then pop in your vegetable or cooking scraps, and when it's full take the whole bag out to your compost bin and either drop it all in the bin or take it back inside to re-use.


Take a trip down memory lane with us!
