Plastic Free at Market.
Brace Gourmet is committed to public health and habitats, so we package our direct-to-consumer product with containers made from a biopolymer called PLA (polylactic acid) by Ingeo™ brand. It is made from U.S.-grown starchy plants, like corn, that are processed into a biopolymer that looks, acts and performs like plastic.
For wholesale beginning May 2023, the state of Massachusetts requires tamper-evident containers, and deli containers are not yet available in PLA. Since polylactic acid containers cannot be heat-sealed, Rocket Fuel Pesto will only be available in recyclable BPA-free polypropylene at future retail points in Essex County. However, compostable containers will still be used for farmers' markets and direct sales. We continue to urge the eco-packaging industry to develop tamper-evident containers and hope to raise our voice louder about the critical need for food-safe, renewable-powered and carbon considerate plastic packaging alternatives. This is a blue planet -- clean water and aquatic life must be protected for the future of humanity.
Please send compostable Rocket Fuel Pesto containers to anaerobic composting facilities.
