NatureWorks PLA (Polylactide) is providing an annually renewable resin based option for a number of packaging applications. As our company has developed a film/sheet partner network, we are providing "supply chain" based solutions to assist customers. As companies begin their journey towards sustainable/renewable packaging, they are finding PLA packaging based materials to be an excellent choice for fresh cut produce and food applications. The ability of PLA to be processed on most conventional packaging process equipment combined with its combination of desirable properties such as high clarity, stiffness and printability are affording leading brand owners an opportunity to utilize more responsible and globally available packaging choices.
