Our products - PLA bottles

We believe in leaving future generations a healthier planet where product packaging have a lower environmental impact, generates less waste, and is both compostable and sustainable. What makes our PLA bottles different?

We use only non-GMO raw material,

We have a plant-based cap that is leak-free.

Our preforms can be made in different colors and sizes,

And we take care of the end of life of our PLA bottles.

Milk deserves a plant-based PLA bottles

At the start of the dairy production line in 2003, our CEO asked himself the question. “Why are organic and natural products actually packed in oily bottles and why is there no plant-based alternative?”
At that moment the search for an alternative started. And in 2004 this alternative was found in PLA. A 100% plant-based bioplastic that does not contain petroleum or other harmful substances.
As far as we know, this makes us the first company in the world to develop a plant-based PLA compostable milk bottle. All this more than 15 years ago.

We use plant-based material

biodegradable bottle compost

By “biobased” is meant materials made from renewable raw materials such as starch, sugar, cellulose, lactic acid, proteins, or via micro-organisms. At present, it usually comes from corn, beet, sugar cane, wood, potato, tapioca root or, for example, nuts, but in the future mainly from residual materials and waste flows. The term “renewable” generally refers to a term within 10 years. Biobased plastics can be compostable or recyclable depending on the material.

Today, there is a bioplastic alternative for almost every conventional plastic material and corresponding application. Bioplastics – plastics that are biobased, biodegradable, or both – have the same properties as conventional plastics and offer additional advantages. This includes a reduced carbon footprint or additional waste management options, such as composting.
Bioplastics are an essential part of the bioeconomy and a fast-growing, innovative industry that has the potential to decouple economic growth from resource depletion and environmental impact. Bioplastics are a diverse family of materials with differing properties. There are three main groups:

  1. Bio-based or partially bio-based non-biodegradable plastics, such as bio-based PE, PP, or PET (so-called drop-ins) and bio-based technical performance polymers, such as PTT or TPC-ET;
  2. Plastics that are both bio-based and biodegradable, such as PLA and PHA or PBS;
  3. Plastics that are based on fossil resources and are biodegradable, such as PBAT

 

PLA is the bio-plastic that we use for our plant-based bottles, caps, and labels. PLA is one of the bioplastics that has the highest volume of production and is the most widespread bio-plastic in the industry. Our PLA bottles are made from sugarcane and are NON-GMO.

The much newer bio-plastic PHA is at the moment researched and tested within our company to become a candidate for making preforms and bottles.

Food composter

Food composter.com is part of a group that has many years of experience in the plant-based packaging industry. We are developing a food composter that can digest; food waste – bioplastics (PLA-PHA), and compostable packaging. With our special “magic sauce” (Bio cultures) and plant-based bio-chips the food digester we are developing is unique in the market. Take a look at all the different food composters we can offer.

Green packaging

We believe in plant-based compostable packaging and like to support you in making the switch away from fossil plastic. Is your company looking for an alternative for the oil based plastics for your products our packaging?
Let us support you in the search for the right solution. What we want to do is show you the options that plant-based materials have and if/how this can work for your product and packaging.
