Spiral Foods Embraces Great Wrap’s Compostable Pallet Wrap for Sustainable Shipping

VIC, Australia – Spiral Foods, a prominent supplier and distributor of traditional foods in Australia, has embraced Great Wrap’s compostable pallet wrap as an eco-friendly addition to its supply chain. The Spiral Foods Group comprises four key brands: Spiral Foods, Bonsoy, Casalare and Riverina Grove — with products available nationwide in retail stores.

Given the nature of their business, the need for a robust and reliable pallet wrap was undeniable as they routinely ship heavy pallets laden with food products. Earlier this year, Spiral Foods initiated contact with Great Wrap to explore the usage of its compostable hand pallet wrap and machine pallet wrap. the subsequent collaboration involved rigorous testing to ensure compliance with local and international pallet shipping standards.

The time for change is now, and Great Wrap has proven to produce an integral, strong and durable product, which does not burden the environment.” she emphasized.

Raphaelle Wilson, the Marketing Director at Spiral Foods, noted that the company operates across various supply chains within the food industry. By partnering with Great Wrap, they are taking a proactive stance in aligning their operations with sustainability principles.

Great Wrap’s compostable pallet wrap stands out as the only Australian-made option available.

Wilson added, “We send out pallets daily, to find a solution that diverts away from landfill is a good start. Great Wrap is the only Compostable pallet wrap made here in Australia, partnering with a local company helping us work towards a more sustainable greener future.

According to Julia Kay, co-founder of Great Wrap, this partnership signifies an entry point for compostable innovators like Great Wrap to enter the food and beverage industries. 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.

Kay said, “As the only Australian manufacturer of compostable stretch wrap, it is promising to see a leading Australian supplier and distributor of quality foods transitioning away from traditional pallet wrap. 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.”

Since its launch in 2019, Great Wrap has experienced significant growth and has established a manufacturing facility in Australia. The company is actively developing compostable machine pallet wraps and compostable catering wraps, with plans to expand its services to homes, the hospitality industry, and larger sectors, further promoting sustainable packaging solutions.

Vietnamese rowing sensation – Bonsoy Golden Stars set to make waves at Sydney Championships competition

Sydney, Australia – In a story of Australia – Vietnam sporting collaboration thirty years in the making, Vietnam’s very own rowing team the Bonsoy Golden Stars are making their way to Australia for the upcoming 2023 NSW Rowing Championships at Sydney International Regatta Centre at Castlereagh St Penrith from 10-12 February 2023. What began as a group of amateur rowers who tried to fit in training around family obligations has since developed into a professional sport, with Vietnam receiving the top rowing nation at the Southeast Asian Games, and young Vietnamese in both Vietnam and Australia increasingly inspired to embrace the sport.

Vietnamese Rower and member of the Bonsoy Golden Stars Ms Huệ said: “We are grateful to Bonsoy and our coach Joe for going over and beyond in supporting my teammates and I – the Bonsoy Golden Stars. It is a dream come true to represent Vietnam in Australia and we hope to make all Vietnamese in Australia and Vietnam feel proud and inspired. With the right start in terms of coaching, training and diet, our team has become a force and we are looking forward to the opportunity to compete in Australia and represent our country.”

Bonsoy Golden Stars Coach and Australian representative, Joe Donnelly said: “Good luck to the Bonsoy Golden Stars and thank you to Bonsoy for the financial and other support enabling the team to not only compete to such a high standard, but also to better their education, find fulfilling careers and build strong families. To me, this is more than a sponsorship – it is a story of Australia-Vietnam cooperation. The professionalising of rowing over the last 2 decades is opening up careers for Vietnamese athletes and transforming their lives as well as inspiring next generation Vietnamese athletes. With diet and training in place, I am excited to see what the team delivers at the NSW Rowing Championships.”

Rower Ms Huệ added: “Diet is important for us to stay healthy and compete well. We have introduced Bonsoy products into our daily diet and we are happy with the outcome! Bonsoy Soy Milk makes a nourishing and protein-packed breakfast or snack and the fact it contains nothing artificial is really welcome. We have also incorporated Bonsoy Sparkling Coconut Water to our diet post-training to ensure we are rehydrated quickly – especially in the hotter weather.” 

Raphaelle Wilson, Marketing Director at Spiral Foods, parent company of Bonsoy said: “Best of luck to the Bonsoy Golden Stars! This sponsorship is a natural fit because of the team’s commitment to a healthy lifestyle – something we at Bonsoy live and breathe. As athletes, the team knows to get the most out of your body, you’ve got to put the best fuel in. We only use premium-quality, all-natural soybeans and almonds, so every drop is nutritious. Rowing is an inclusive sport which aligns beautifully with Bonsoy’s identity, especially as this sponsorship is bringing together Australians and Vietnamese! Bonsoy has had a unique Vietnamese connection for a while now, with many Vietnamese Australians choosing our beverages – our Bonsoy sparkling coconut water is even manufactured in Vietnam! We hope to continue building connections with Australia’s thriving Vietnamese community beyond this sponsorship.”

The Bonsoy Coffs Harbour Open

24-25 September

Bonsoy is thrilled to support the first stop of the Australian Open of Surfing (AOS), as a title partner for the Bonsoy Coffs Harbour Open presented by Gage Roads will inaugurate an exciting single-wave format, where surfers’ final heat placing will be made up of their best one wave, rather than the traditional two-wave total.

Coopers Surf General Manager and Coffs Harbour Boardrider club member, Andrew Lindsay said it’s fantastic to have the Australian Open of Surfing tour events in regional areas like Coffs Harbour.

The event gives up to 96 of Australia’s elite male and female surfers the opportunity to win a share of the $50,000 prize pool and gain momentum going into 2023.

“The AOS enables local talent to match their skills against Australia’s best surfers on home turf,” said Lindsay. “Having the best here also inspires our local grommets to aspire to be future champions.”

The AOS tour will include two qualifying events, the Bonsoy Coffs Harbour Open (24-25 September) and the Sunshine Coast Open (1-2 October), with the top qualifiers from the two events invited to compete at the Bondi Grand Final, to be held 15 October.

Each tour stop will provide a platform for Australian professional and aspiring surfers to stay competitive in the off-season.

Coffs Harbour rising star Rosie Smart said she’s excited to see the level of surfing brought out by the single-wave format introduced by the AOS.

“I think it’s going to be a really exciting event, not only for competitors but also for spectators as I think this new format is going to ensure us competitors push our limits, especially with the prize money on offer,” said Smart. “I’m also really stoked to be competing in my hometown. The waves are consistently fun around here, I’m familiar with the breaks and there’s always somewhere to surf no matter what the conditions provide – it’s also a bonus I can sleep in my own bed.”

Entries for the Bonsoy Coffs Harbour Open and the Sunshine Coast Open are available via Surfing NSW & Surfing Queensland.
