Mars Wrigley and Danimer Scientific, a leading developer and manufacturer of biodegradable materials, have entered into a two-year partnership to develop home-compostable packaging that biodegrades in soil and oceans.

It will continue to evaluate opportunities to scale this innovative, sustainable packaging technology across its portfolio of brands and categories.
