Bio-Based World Quarterly Issue #5.jpg“Consumers have a lot of power in making brands change behaviour.”

Welcome to Issue #5 of Bio-Based World Quarterly, your dedicated guide to the latest news and essential business developments for bio-based chemicals, brands and products.

The above quote is from Julia Schifter, of TIPA, a fantastic company making 100% compostable plastic packaging and the subject of this edition’s featured interview. It perhaps seems an obvious observation but do even those of us working in the bio-based industry think enough about what we consume and use? Both at work and at home? That’s one of the challenging themes we explore in this issue. And companies like TIPA are a great example of a business moving from start-up phase through to being a serious commercial operation and we are proud to bring you some more stories from the wide-world of bio-based with great contributions from NEN, H&M, Bio-based Industries Consortium (BIC), Ikea and many more. So download today for free and start reading!
