Plant-Based Bags

“We’re already piloting plant-based, bioplastic bags in three locations across the globe, including Chile, India, and here in the US,” Aulisi says. “These bags are produced from renewable resources and can be composted in industrial composting facilities.”

Earlier last year, PepsiCo and biotech firm Danimer Scientific collaborated on developing biodegradable film resin from polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) that meets the food and beverage company’s flexible packaging requirements. The first in-market PHA snack bag pilot is expected to happen in 2021. Aulisi said that the company is also working making thin film recyclable.
