MELBOURNE, Australia, Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Cardia Bioplastics announces its collaboration with Nestle S.A., the largest Fast Moving Consumer Goods company in the world, to reduce the environmental impact of packaging.

Cardia Bioplastics Managing Director Dr Frank Glatz said: "Collaborating with Nestle presents an exciting opportunity to develop high performance packaging with lower environmental impact. In addition to offering a product with beneficial environmental profile and full food safety compliance, delivering superior packaging performance through the product life cycle is a key criterion for success."

"Our proprietary multi-layer flexible film and rigid packaging developments are important offerings in meeting demanding packaging performance requirements," he said.

Cardia is well positioned to benefit from the trend towards sustainable packaging. It offers customers the choice of using sustainable Cardia Biohybrid(TM) technology (less oil, lower carbon foot print) or compostable technology (delivering certified compostability to international standards) for their packaging or plastic product solutions. The company's materials are suitable for a broad range of packaging applications, including flexible film, injection moulding, blow moulding, foam, and extrusion and coating applications.
