good natured® has announced the addition 22 certified compostable and biodegradable cups, bowls, take-out containers, plates and cutlery to its plant-based packaging and product assortment.
Using a variety of sustainable materials, including fiber from sugarcane waste, Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) certified paper and polylactic acid (PLA), these products also represent expansion for good natured® beyond bioplastics into a broader assortment of eco-friendly materials.
Planet Friendly Food Packaging Options
The good natured® foodservice collection addresses the increased demand for packaging options that are suitable for food take-out and delivery while also being planet friendly. The combination of growing pressure from consumers and city legislation driving change in waste management programs has resulted in businesses adopting biodegradable and compostable materials for take-out and delivery packaging, which can be combined with food scraps to create a single waste stream.
As part of a phased roll-out, this initial selection of foodservice products made without chemicals that have been identified as potentially harmful to human health and the environment.
Even prior to the challenging circumstances of COVID-19, consumer eating trends have been changing rapidly toward prepared and takeaway food and demand for appropriate packaging that’s environmentally responsible,” said Paul Antoniadis, CEO of good natured®. “This new product assortment enables us to address a whole new segment of thousands of food and restaurant businesses across North America who require more than just rigid bioplastic container options.”
