Foam packaging plays an important part in keeping items protected during the shipping process and Green Cell Foam sets itself apart as a water-soluble option. The corn-based foam packaging is touted as offering "the most flexibility and convenience in disposal options of any packaging material—going far beyond just recycling," and it is being implemented by Perdue Farms and its new ecommerce website. On the site, users are able to place orders for chicken and other kinds of meat directly from the company.
Once a customer's order arrives, they receive their shipment in 100% recyclable packaging, along with the Green Cell Foam that can be composted or dissolved in water in the sink. As the foam packaging is made from water-soluble cornstarch, the material is safe for drains, septic systems and treatment centers.
