BioMass Packaging has introduced a catalogue of compostable products for the wine industry. The products are compostable, nature-based and disposable instead of traditional, petroleum-based plastic products. The company offers bio-based cutlery, plates, napkins, cups, wraps and resealable containers. Made from agricultural sources like bamboo, palm, eucalyptus and potato, the products are compostable and include SpudWare, cutlery formulated from vegetable starch and natural fillers, and BagasseWare, sturdy, disposable food containers made from sugar cane bagasse.
BioMass also has a line of plant-based cleaning supplies.
Based in Richmond, BioMass Packaging won the Bioplastics Awards Marketing Initiative Award in 2007 for the best marketing program in the world.
“Five years ago, 80 percent of these products didn’t exist,” founder Steve Levine said. “We’re even close to developing a completely compostable wine glass for winery tasting rooms.”
The selection of products allows any catering job can be turned into a completely compostable project, he said.
