OSC² leverages sponsored partnerships to drive our Natural Products industry projects forward. Our current sponsors include Biobag USA, Elk Packaging, Futamura Group, New Resource Bank, and Wendell Rosen. Their generous support and sponsorships have enabled us to host our Future of Food speaker series, expand our research on compostable and renewable packaging, launch a new chapter, and provide bonuses to key contributors within our OSC² network for tremendous contribution.
BioBag is the domestic distributor of Matter-Bi Resin, an essential component of our compostable packaging materials. In addition, BioBag has decades of expertise building relationships with waste managers and composters. They are helping guide us on the compostable packaging end of life journey to ensure that the packaging we look at will have acceptance within the waste management community.
Elk Packaging has formed a sustainable packaging division with long time colleagues and contributors toOSC², including Jeanne Cloutier, who helped pioneer the Alter Eco compostable package. They are helping us both design structures with film manufacturers and research and report on the impact of these structures on the environment and the products they contain.
Futamura Group is a leading global manufacturer of specialty products supplied into the packaging, labels, overwrap and securities markets. Its films are sold to converters, brand owners and end-users across the globe.
