Ever wondered how your coffee cups are made? Take a look inside our factory!



Produced in our world-leading manufacturing facility with over 25 years of experience, we invite you to go behind the scenes to discover how NatureWorks technologies transform greenhouse gases, like carbon dioxide, into a portfolio of polylactic acid (PLA) performance materials called Ingeo. This low-carbon alternative to petrochemical-based plastics is the material innovation behind our EcoCup—making a product we use day-to-day safer and ecologically responsible.

From extraction to manufacturing to viable end-of-life opportunities, the Ingeo biopolymer is a low-carbon, bio-based material made from ethically sourced, annually and rapidly renewable feedstocks. Its applications enable multiple circular economy pathways, and for our brand partners, these products are accelerating food service towards a responsible, circular future.
