Evirocor was established in 2014 to manufacture a unique type of packaging material utilizing worldwide patented processes designed & developed in-house. The new sustainable packaging material, we have called Oko, is food-friendly, 100% biodegradable, home compostable, and recyclable. Oko is replacing all types of single-use plastics and aluminium food containers. We have also developed an earth-friendly range of e-commerce tamper-proof mailers we call Oko SafePouch.
Our manufacturing technology creates a strong semi-flexible packaging material which is coated with a watertight plant-based, food-friendly barrier. Our flexible bio-material is superior to many conventional materials in terms of shelf life, durability, sealing strength, insulation properties, and recyclability.
We are setting the pace in sustainable manufacturing of nature-friendly packaging. Our system of production of our material is unique in terms of our CO2 reduction and sustainable raw material supply. Our use of production systems that require no heat input reduces CO2 emissions by up to 97% to comparative material. Our technologies & systems producing our Oko material have been 15 years in the design & development process. We first started manufacturing in India to take advantage of the very bold decision taken by the Indian government to ban single-use plastics. At that time and until very recently the UK & Europe had committed only to eliminate a few single-use plastic items such as plastic straws and earbuds. We saw India as the ideal place to start our production.
