California company World Centric has been pioneering a new generation of compostable food takeout containers. Recently they began working with an Ohio-based company called Aloterra to manufacture food packaging from a plant called miscanthus. Aloterra wants to bring back more manufacturing jobs to the U.S. while also providing farmers with a more financially-reliable crop. Their endeavor is making use of thousands of acres of marginalized farmland that are unfit to grow food, as well as restoring the agricultural and manufacturing industries of an economically-struggling region.


Why World Centric?


In 2009, we selected World Centric to be our primary manufacuring partner to supply take out containers, cups, and other compostables for our restaurant clients. Here's why we selected them and why we're proud to represent their products.
