Food safety and chain-of-custody security are at an all-time high for business owners and customers, given the growth in popularity of grocery and restaurant delivery and take-out industries. good natured Products Inc, a North American leader in plant-based food packaging, has announced the launch of its novel US patent-pending tamper-evident design, GoodGuard™, available in both commercially compostable PLA and curbside recyclable Bio-PET.
Food security without compromising the environment
Of the larger audience GoodGuard™ targets, vertical farmers represent one of the most important groups. With the concept of vertical farming implying a fast delivery of fresh greens, it is of the utmost importance to transport food in proper packaging that wouldn't contribute to increased waste and align with vertical farms' mission. This unique US patent-pending packaging innovation is the newest solution for farmers looking to switch to compostable packaging but does not want to compromise on product safety.
“I am particularly proud of our R&D and Engineering team at good natured® and their passion to create real-world solutions that meet the needs of both the environment and our customers,” stated Paul Antoniadis, CEO of good natured®. “By developing a wide assortment of high frequency products and packaging, we’re able to drive out the adoption of renewable, plant-based materials more quickly than if we focused on a single niche. Ultimately, it’s less risky for our business model and more beneficial for the environment.”
Lock in that fresh-from-harvest goodness
GoodGuard™ dual-sided tamper evident containers will be available in both commercially compostable PLA and curbside recyclable Bio-PET, both of which make use of renewable, plant-based materials to deliver an industry leading and exclusive assortment of tamper evident food packaging in the US and Canada.
These multi-purpose tamper evident containers will be available in 6 versatile sizes, including 8, 12, 16, 24, 32 and 48oz and have all the features that good natured® is known for, including durable plant-based materials, leak resistance, stackability and enhanced product visibility. In addition, this US patent-pending design includes an intuitive feature with no tear-away strips or small pieces that can escape waste/recycling streams to accumulate in land and marine environments.
