Congratulations to Biovation LLC, a member of the Sustainable Bioplastics Council of Maine, for earning the BioPreferred label from the USDA in its Packaging Materials category. The USDA label assures consumers that a product or package contains a verified amount of renewable biological ingredients. Biovation is among one of the first in Maine to produce products earning the BioPreferred status. Instead of petroleum-based materials, Biovation’s food packaging pad uses polylactic acid (PLA), which is derived from cornstarch. It is all natural, biodegradable, compostable, bio-absorbable, and non-toxic! Read more here.
