Green Cell Foam, which produces fully biodegradable and disposable packaging material, has widened its global trade by becoming the only provider of insulated coolers for NIKU Farms.
The company based in Toronto will be the first meat delivery service to introduce the advanced shipping material to Canada for its farm-to-door meat subscription boxes.
This new purchase will significantly increase Green Cell Foam’s current Canadian business and will expand the increasing numbers of direct-to-consumer food companies globally, who trust the wholly water-soluble shipping inserts for safe and long-lasting delivery of their products to their customers.
We created Green Cell Foam to be a completely biodegradable, limited-impact alternative to Styrofoam, plastic and other landfill-clogging materials commonly used in shipping. We’re proud of the work we do for partners who share our vision and are excited to expand in Canada with NIKU Farms, a mission-driven company with sustainability ingrained in all aspects of its business.

KTM Industries produces Green Cell Foam.
Green Cell Foam 101:
- Biodegradable, backyard compostable, and water-soluble
- A special natural, eco-friendly packaging material
- Production requires 70% less energy and generates 80% less greenhouse gases than petroleum-based foams
- Equals the performance of petroleum-based foams
- Biodegradable substitute made from non-GMO cornstarch
Food subscription boxes are rising in popularity, but often they create excessive plastic waste. By using Green Cell Foam packaging, high-quality, ethically raised meat can go straight to your door in a completely sustainable way. We encourage other Canadian companies to join us in switching to a more sustainable option like Green Cell Foam. With Canada poised to ban single-use plastics by 2021, the time is now.
