Fabri-Kal: USDA certified on-the-go boxes
Boxes made entirely from plants earns USDA Certified Biobased Product Label. Boxes contain 100% biobased content, reduce environmental impact.
Fabri-Kal announces that its Greenware® On-The-Go Boxes have been recognized for being made entirely from plants, earning the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label. Containing 100 percent biobased content, the containers provide foodservice operators an innovative packaging solution to present food for grab-and-go consumption, increased consumer appeal and reduced environmental impact.
Under the USDA BioPreferred program, products are labeled “biobased” if they are composed wholly or significantly of biological ingredients, such as renewable plant material. The fundamental goals of the USDA BioPreferred program include spurring the development of the biobased industrial base to meet sustainability goals, enhancing energy security by substituting biobased products such as Greenware® products for petroleum-based products and promoting products that reduce environmental impact.
Greenware® On-The-Go Boxes allow the flexibility to display an assortment of creative food combinations and are available in 2-, 3- and 4-compartment designs that are shrink-band compatible for tamper evident applications. Crystal-clear, durable and stackable, the boxes have a compact, square shape to maximize cold case and shelf space.
Greenware® On-The-Go Boxes are the newest member of the Greenware® family, which includes cold drink cups in seven sizes and portion containers in three sizes. Matching flat and domed lids as well as cup inserts are available. All Greenware® products are made from Ingeo biopolymer, a PLA resin derived entirely from plants. All Greenware® products are made in the USA from plant sources that are domestically-grown and annually renewable. Greenware® is 100 percent compostable in actively managed municipal or industrial facilities, which may not exist in your area. Not suitable for backyard composting.
