We’re Jordy & Julia Kay the Co-founders of Great Wrap. Our goal is to make products from the best materials possible, everyday. Currently we manufacture home compostable stretch wrap from food waste and with our team of brainy scientists and engineers, we will continue to improve our materials and offer many more products. Our team at Great Wrap are proudly developing technology that will change the world, one roll at a time.

What problem is your business solving?

The plastic waste problem.

Tell us three unique things about your business:

1. We’re the only Australian made & owned compostable stretch wrap

2. We use food waste to create our products

3. Our wrap is 100% compostable and it breaks down into carbon + water in 180 days

Can you tell us a little about your background and where the inspiration came from for your business?

Jordy was making natural wine and farming organically and Julia was working in architecture designing buildings with an education focus. We’d both used a lot of pallet wrap in our respective industries and in architecture I would spend a lot of time looking for the most sustainable materials only for them to arrive on site wrapped in pallet wrap made from petroleum based products, and it was the same for Jordy. One day we were sitting on a beach and asked ourselves if we weren’t operating in our respective industries would they be any different without us. The answer felt like a no which was when we really decided to do something more meaningful for the planet and for ourselves. We both love spending time in the ocean so the plastic waste problem felt like a natural fit to tackle. We wanted to test that there was an appetite for a product like ours and we knew we wanted to use it, but weren’t sure if this was actually a product the rest of the world cared about. So we had some pallet wrap contract manufactured and posted it on our own personal Instagram accounts – it sold out within hours! That’s when we knew we were doing something important. It was after that moment that we decided we’d have to make it ourselves to ensure we could give customers the best products possible without making any sacrifices. Now we have a factory manufacturing it ourselves where we’re creating inclusive jobs and using renewables to power it.
