For NatureWorks LLC, fresh food packaging is no longer coming in plastic form. Instead, this packaging company uses PLA packaging in Belgian Delhaize supermarkets. This company's packages for deli, fruit, and food containers look and perform like plastic, but are in fact made from 'Ingeo' natural plastic.

Ingeo plastic is made from plants, not oil, reducing the consumption of fossil fuels to make each package. This method uses precisely 60% less greenhouse gases and 50% less non-renewable energy than traditional methods.

This method of production is a step in the right direction and provides an excellent alternative for fresh food packaging. Each package features a glossy, transparent and clear disposition. The food itself holds exceptional flavor and aroma, and the material is easy to shape, print, and emboss as well.
