good natured Products Inc. announces U.S. patent-pending innovation, GoodGuard™
By CNW Group Ltd.General
VANCOUVER, BC, March 9, 2022 /CNW/ — good natured Products Inc. (the “Company” or “good natured®“) (TSXV: GDNP), a North American leader in plant-based products, is pleased to announce it has filed for patent protection of its novel tamper evident design, GoodGuard™, optimized for compostable and biobased materials and only available from good natured®.
This unique US patent pending packaging innovation comes at a time when food safety and chain-of-custody security is at an all-time high and expected to grow in importance given the proliferation of grocery and restaurant delivery and take-out industries, like Uber Eats, Instacart and Door Dash. California passed a bill in 2020, requiring restaurants to use tamper evident packaging when using third-party food delivery services. The Company anticipates more states to follow and will be poised to offer this earth-friendly solution when the market needs it the most.
GoodGuard™ dual-sided tamper evident containers will be available in both commercially compostable PLA and curbside recyclable Bio-PET, both of which make use of renewable, plant-based materials to deliver an industry leading and exclusive assortment of tamper evident food packaging in the US and Canada.
These multi-purpose tamper evident containers will be available in 6 versatile sizes including 8, 12, 16, 24, 32 and 48oz and have all the features that good natured® is known for including durable plant-based materials, leak resistance, stackability and enhanced product visibility. In addition, this US patent pending design includes an intuitive feature with no tear-away strips or small pieces that can escape waste/recycling streams to accumulate in land and marine environments.
“I am particularly proud of our R&D and Engineering team at good natured® and their passion to create real-world solutions that meet the needs of both the environment and our customers,” stated Paul Antoniadis, CEO of good natured®. “By developing a wide assortment of high frequency products and packaging, we’re able to drive out the adoption of renewable, plant-based materials more quickly than if we focused on a single niche. Ultimately, it’s less risky for our business model and more beneficial for the environment.”
“With the acquisitions of Shepherd Thermoforming, IPF and Ex-Tech Plastics, our growing technical team now includes in-house expertise in plant-based materials, tooling technology and emerging processing capabilities,” stated Michel Labonte, CTO at good natured®. “Our technical team loves a good challenge and developed an innovative new packaging design and processing technique that takes into account the technical specifications of PLA to deliver a strong, safe packaging solution that’s made from plants, not petroleum.”
