Naturpack is a durable, lightweight and greener loose-fill packaging material made from unmodified corn starch. This product is manufactured without chemicals and is 100 per cent biodegradable, making it an excellent alternative to Styrofoam packing. By adapting German technology, this innovator has modified the process to produce an environmentally-friendly packaging product that can be widely used and presents an alternative use for corn. The innovation is the only product in North America that uses the patented extrusion process and raw material combination. Naturpack is a great example that shows us how agriculture can produce greener products and help shrink our environmental footprint.
