A new collaboration aims for Xampla’s natural materials to be manufactured at scale whilst leveraging the 2M Group of Companies’ European facilities.
2M will manufacture multiple tonnes of Xampla’s materials under its consumer brand Morro at its Milton Keynes manufacturing site.
Morro materials are made from natural polymers and are not chemically modified, meaning they are exempt from the existing European single-use plastic directive.
Produced from plants, Morro offers a sustainable drop-in alternative to plastic that fully biodegrades at the end of its life. The brand of natural materials will in turn enable 2M to expand its portfolio of sustainable alternatives for manufacturing and distribution directly to brands, eliminating plastics from the supply chain.
Through 2M’s subsidiaries, which include formulation, manufacturing and distribution services, the pair will work together to address new customer needs in the personal care and homecare institutional and industrial markets, as well as develop new opportunities and partnerships in the packaging space.

Xampla CEO Alexandra French commented: “Working with 2M’s wide-reaching network, our collaboration will enable more customers to use Morro materials across a range of products, demonstrating the potential for plant-based materials in eliminating polluting plastics.”
2M CEO and chair Mottie Kessler OBE added: “We see huge potential with Xampla’s technology and the Morro brand and are excited at the opportunity it presents to support the transformation of our portfolio to more sustainable technologies.”
This partnership is the first technology licensing agreement with Morro, building on the success of projects with meal kit retailer Gousto and global soft drinks manufacturer Britvic. Morro also recently collaborated with skincare brand ELEMIS.
