NL: Growfun getting started with bioplastic Rodenburg Biopolymers

Growfun produces biodegradable pots with the biodegradable plastic granulate from Rodenburg Biopolymers, winner of the Global Bioplastics Award. The biobased and biodegradable compounds from Rodenburg Biopolymers are substitutes for the oil-based plastics. The biodegradable compounds have starch as a base, obtained from the potato processing industry.

"We choose to collaborate with Rodenburg Biopolymers because they are experts in that specific product development. With their know-how they are able, together with us, to come to a specific and high-quality product," according to Jan Blankestijn, managing director. Growfun is a flexible and innovative company that works together with customers and partners working with high-quality plastic products. Growfun spends a lot of time and funding on R&D. Their R&D department and the University of Wageningen explore new technologies that they can apply to themes such as the circular economy. “At Growfun innovation plays a major role in both technology and design. Only this way we can serve our customers quickly, skillfully and professionally, now and in the future." The customers of Growfun are national and international growers, exporters and retailers who demand a flexible, customer-oriented supplier in addition to good quality.
