Green Cell Foam, a biodegradable and compostable packaging material, has expanded its business by becoming the exclusive supplier of insulated coolers for NIKU Farms. The Toronto-based company will be the first meat delivery service to bring the shipping material to Canada for its farm-to-door meat subscription boxes.

“We created Green Cell Foam to be a completely biodegradable, limited-impact alternative to Styrofoam, plastic and other landfill-clogging materials commonly used in shipping,” says Tim Colonnese, CEO of KTM Industries, makers of Green Cell Foam. “We’re proud of the work we do for partners who share our vision and are excited to expand in Canada with NIKU Farms, a mission-driven company with sustainability engrained in all aspects of its business.”

Green Cell Foam 101 is described as a natural, environmentally friendly packaging material that matches the performance of petroleum-based foams. It is also said to be backyard compostable, biodegradable and water soluble, and is made from non-GMO cornstarch.

“Food subscription boxes are rising in popularity, but often they create excessive plastic waste. By using Green Cell Foam packaging, high-quality, ethically-raised meat can go straight to your door in a completely sustainable way,” says Luke Armstrong, Co-Founder of NIKU Farms. “We encourage other Canadian companies to join us in switching to a more sustainable option like Green Cell Foam. With Canada poised to ban single-use plastics by 2021, the time is now.”
