StalkMarket Unveils Compostable Food Packaging

stalkmarketStalkMarket Products, a provider of compostable tableware and food packaging, has unveiled what it calls the world’s first Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) certified compostable Ingeo hot cup and lid system. BPI certification is based on standards set by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM).

Replacing petroleum-based products with renewable materials, the containers are 100% compostable and are manufactured from Ingeo plant-based plastics from NatureWorks LLC. The containers meet the requirements of ASTM D6400 or ASTM D6868. The Planet+ line of compostable products withstand more than 200 degrees F of wet heat and compost in 60 to 90 days in commercial composting facilities, according to the Portland, Oregon company.

As more companies implement green practices, there is a growing need for sustainable packaging. Food companies that have recently switched to compostable packaging include Gingerbread Folk, Twinings, KFC and Haigh’s Chocolates.

  1. This idea is great, but aren’t there two glaring obstacles?: 1) How will these products be distinguished from non-biodegradable products and 2) are commercial composting facilities even available in most cities?

    Oops…forgot to say great post! Looking forward to your next one.

  3. I am a buyer for a leading distribution company in france and we are getting more and more interrested in eco-friendly tableware (cups, plates and cutlery).

    Do your products meet with European EN 13432?

    Please let me know ASAP the raw materials list of your products, the highest temperature they can reach and a detailled pricelist for a 40 feet container.

    We can represent a big business opportunuity for you.
