May 4, 2023 — (Vancouver, BC) good natured Products Inc. (the “Company” or “good natured®“) (TSX-V: GDNP) (OTCQX: GDNPF), a North American leader in plant-based products, today announced the arrival of its GoodToGo™ Microwavable collection, the first CMA certified compostable 1>, high-clarity take-out containers that are heat-resistant, made with 97% plant-based materials and priced for the real world.
With its in-house expertise in biomaterials and biomanufacturing, the Company invested in GoodToGo™ Microwavable specifically to meet the requirements of single-use plastics regulations and to help address the over 9 million tons of disposable food ware and packaging used by the restaurant industry each year.2>
The most popular 16oz and 24oz formats are now available for immediate purchase at goodnaturedproducts.com as well as on Amazon in the US and Canada. Designed with grocery and restaurant businesses in mind, the GoodToGo™ Microwavable collection combines sustainability with important features for food on the go, like stackability, leak-resistance and hot/cold applications. Like all good natured® branded products, the GoodToGo™ collection contains no chemicals of concern, like BPAs, phthalates and phytoestrogens that are potentially harmful to human health, especially when heated.
This launch comes at an opportune time, as the White House recently announced their National Biostrategy 3> that established a bold new goal to replace 90% of today’s petrochemical plastics with those that are biobased. This 20-year goal will see investments of $1.2 billion in bio industrial domestic manufacturing for biotech innovators like good natured®.
“We’ve developed deep expertise in manufacturing biobased materials and got ahead of the curve by investing in local North American based biomanufacturing facilities where we can manufacture our own innovations like GoodToGo™ Microwavable containers,” said Paul Antoniadis, CEO of good natured®. “Increased attention on food containers made from hard-to-recycle petroleum-based materials, along with the U.S. commitment to further invest in building out our industry has good natured® ideally positioned to capitalize on the wave of demand that we believe is coming.”
This latest proprietary biotech innovation offers a closed-loop, eco-friendly alternative to single-use plastic that reflects the Company’s ongoing commitment to develop products that address both environmental and health concerns. Conventional recycling options for packaging that contains traces of food and oils has been particularly problematic with beverage bottles making up the vast majority of recycled plastic packaging in the United States.4> Organizations, such as the Plant Based Products Council, are advocating strongly for the investment and development of a strong composting infrastructure to support the adoption of renewable materials that can be composted alongside food waste at the end of their useful life and reduce plastic pollution in the environment.
