Oct 10, 2021 | Chuck Zachman

Ready to meet the growing demands for sustainable packaging? See why Evanesce is your top choice for affordable and innovative plant-based, compostable packaging solutions.

Evanesce is the new name in sustainable packaging technology and is set to disrupt the $908B packaging industry. Established in 2016, headquartered in Vancouver, we are a complete solution to replace plastics and expanded polystyrene (EPS) foam, commonly known as Styrofoam™ in global food packaging. We also offer solutions that are proudly made in the USA.

Driven by the 3 Cs –  circular, compostable, and cost-competitive – our revolutionary patented technology uses the latest developments in material science, engineering and green design. Our patented technology will usher in a new era of sustainable alternatives that can meet your sustainable goals and are more cost-effective than existing alternatives in the market.

We’re committed to helping our customers reduce their packaging costs while meeting increasing environmental regulations and public demand for more sustainable solutions.

Here are 6 reasons to consider Evanesce for your sustainable food packaging needs

1. High-quality sustainable food packaging products.

We believe eco-friendly products need to be more than just eco-friendly. To be used at scale in the foodservice industry, you need packaging products that also offer superior performance and functionality including being heat resistant.

An impressive 80% of consumers say that sustainability is an important factor in their purchasing decisions. Meet this growing consumer demand with a wide range of sustainable packaging products that look and feel like plastic or  EPS and are 100% plant-based and 100% compostable.

We offer two lines of eco-friendly packaging technologies: Evanesce Biopolymers and our patented Evanesce® Molded Starch technology. We’re ready to serve you with chemical-free, high-performance and quality food packaging. See our videos to learn more!

2. Get truly sustainable food packaging, driven by the circular economy and certified compostable.

Evanesce is guided by a circular economy approach

With the EU, several U.S. states, and other countries including Canada moving to ban single-use plastics and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) or ‘forever chemicals’ added into food packaging – the world needs sustainable options now.

Evanesce is guided by a curricular economy approach. To create our innovative packaging solutions, we reuse food waste to reinvent packaging and reform our place in nature. We believe packaging materials should start from the earth and get returned to the earth.

Our sustainable packaging is 100% compostable and certified by the Biodegradables Product Institute.


3. Proudly made in the USA.

We offer packaging solutions that are proudly manufactured in the USA. Our first state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is strategically located off I-95 in South Carolina, offering easy inland and outland accessibility.

Our second manufacturing facility is in North Las Vegas, Nevada. We also have distribution centers located coast to coast.

Feel good about choosing American-made products:

  • Lower transportation and freight costs
  • Ensures timely and consistent supply of quality products
  • Helps your company or your customers reduce their carbon footprint
  • Support jobs across the country
  • Uses domestic compostable materials


4. Sustainable food packaging that’s actually affordable.

The reality is that most brands and companies want to make the shift to sustainable solutions, but the cost is a major barrier.

At Evanesce, we believe sustainability doesn’t have to be expensive – and to create a real impact on reducing global environmental waste, it has to be affordable.

With cost-competitive solutions, mass adoption of sustainable packaging is achievable. That’s why we specifically design our products to be both sustainable and affordable.

Here’s how we keep our costs low:

  • We source and manufacture our products locally
  • Our innovative patented technology uses flexible inputs of starch and fiber, using what’s readily available and affordable. If potato prices go up, we switch to another starch.
  • We use upcycled plant by-products, otherwise known as inedible food waste, to create our Evanesce® Molded Starch products
  • Off-the-shelf manufacturing machines keep our production lines running smooth and efficiently


5. Customized solutions to meet your needs.

Your brand needs to stand out and showcase your commitment to sustainability. That’s why we offer customization of all our products – from biopolymer straws, cups, lids, bowls and more.

Be it color, size, or special printing on the packaging – talk to our dedicated team to meet your specific needs.

6. Simple and easy to work with.

We believe personalized customer care is key to building relationships and delivering on our promises. Our dedicated customer service and sales team can answer your questions and help you explore the best compostable packaging options to meet your packaging needs or sustainability goals. We make it easy to work with us.
