Novamont introduces new compostable fresh produce bags

Bio-based materials producer, Novamont, has released the latest generation of its Mater-Bi product, which is available in the production in Europe for fruit and vegetable bags. The bags are designed to be fully compostable along with other household food waste at home.

The Novamont product reportedly matches or betters traditional forms of plastic in terms of performance characteristics and is being targeted at a European marketplace where legislation is restricting the use of traditional plastics. In France, for example, all fruit and vegetable bags for self service in French supermarkets will be legally required to be “home compostable”.
