Sustainable Food Packaging

We are beginning development of biodegradable, antimicrobial food packaging made from renewable materials derived from nature. The possibility of shifting the food industry to biodegradable materials with antimicrobial properties is monumental. This new bioplastic material will improve food safety from field to table.

Benefits for growers include less spoilage and higher incomes. Benefits to consumers include improved food safety, more nutritious food, and reduced food costs through the extension of shelf life after purchase.
