TricorBraun to exclusively offer industry-first biodegradable bottle to nutraceutical companies in the U.S. and Canada

ST. LOUIS, March 8, 2023 – Global packaging leader TricorBraun announced today that it has signed an exclusive agreement with BioBottles™, further expanding its sustainable-packaging offerings.

The agreement enables TricorBraun to exclusively offer BioBottles—the first and only biodegradable bottle specifically designed and engineered for the nutraceutical industry—to nutraceutical companies in the U.S. and Canada.

“Sustainability matters to our customers and their consumers, and it matters to TricorBraun,” said Mark O’Bryan, chief operations officer of TricorBraun. “Our exclusive BioBottles agreement is another example of our focused efforts to offer comprehensive, sustainable options for our customers. We are thrilled to partner with BioBottles to provide our customers with a solution that helps protect both their products and the planet.”


Utilizing proprietary technology, BioBottles are an environmentally responsible and cost-effective alternative for nutraceutical and pharmaceutical packaging needs. An industry-first, BioBottles with Plastic IQ™ technology turns ordinary HDPE and PP bottles, caps, and scoops into a material that is no longer plastic at the end of its useful life when exposed to an open environment, in the right conditions.

“TricorBraun shares our dedication and commitment to providing sustainable-packaging options for the benefit of the planet,” said James Vanbrocklin, CEO and co-founder of BioBottles. “We are excited to partner with a respected industry leader like TricorBraun to deliver this unique yet sustainable alternative for nutraceutical companies—and we look forward to working with TricorBraun to expand into new markets.”

TricorBraun’s agreement with BioBottles marks the latest development in the company’s ongoing sustainability journey and continuous efforts to improve its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) impact.
