She expressed pride in Spiral Foods being an early adopter of Great Wrap’s compostable pallet wrap, highlighting that it aligns with their commitment to quality foods while moving away from traditional pallet wraps.

We’re also starting to see a domino effect within Australian businesses, where brands are beginning to influence each other, as well as their suppliers, to shift away from traditional pallet wrap and towards Great Wrap.”
