Renewable foodservice packaging supplier Eco-Products has launched its new Veridian line of compostable packaging products, aligning with the upcoming Colorado Compostable Product Labeling Act in the US.  

This range includes more than 50 items such as cups, lids, containers, cutlery, clamshells, portion cups, and salad bowls. 

The Veridian collection is designed to meet the stringent requirements of the new Colorado legislation. 

According to Eco-Products, all products under this line are certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI), a North American authority on compostable products. 

The products are clearly marked with the word ‘compostable’ and the BPI Certification Mark, ensuring they are easily identifiable.  

Additionally, they feature distinctive green or brown markers for further differentiation from non-compostable alternatives.

The Veridian collection is now available across the US. 

Eco-Products marketing director Wendell Simonson said: “Veridian products are all clearly recognisable as compostable. That simplifies life for foodservice operators and their customers and helps to ensure composters get the ‘clean’ waste stream they need.”  

The Colorado law, which comes into effect on 1 July 2024, mandates that products labelled as compostable must be certified and clearly marked to avoid misleading consumers. 

The law prohibits producers of non-certified products from using misleading labelling that could falsely imply the products are compostable. 

Foodservice products and plastic products sold or distributed in the state should be represented as compostable if they are compostable by ASTM D6400 or ASTMD6868 standards. 

In addition, the product must display a certification logo indicating certified compostable status and not show a chasing arrow resin identification code or recycling symbol.
