OptiCycle™ Product Line

OptiCycle™ is a new, innovative line of non-polyethylene (PE) coated foodservice packaging that provides an alternative to traditional PE and polylactic acid (PLA) coated products. OptiCycle’s advanced coating technology allows Graphic Packaging International to reduce the amount of material used without sacrificing performance expectations. This new product line is designed to be more easily recyclable by allowing smooth separation of the liquid barrier coating from the paper. When repulped, approximately 98%[1] of the fiber is recovered which means that almost the entire cup can be used to make other paper products.

OptiCycle™ hot cups have received BNQ certification in Canada, which certifies the product as compostable to BNQ standards.

Paper foodservice packaging made with renewable fiber is a great on-the-go option for both brands and consumers today. OptiCycle™ is the next step forward in the collective journey towards a more circular economy. Join us in taking your packaging to the next level with OptiCycle™!
