MINNETONKA, Minn., February 15, 2008 – NatureWorks LLC is pleased to take part in the European Bioplastics-dedicated section at Interpack in Dusseldorf, Germany, 24 – 28 April, 2008. Held every three years, Interpack provides a key venue for NatureWorks to showcase Ingeo products to the global packaging market.

Made uniquely from NatureWorks biopolymer, Ingeo packaging innovations are rewriting the rules on how to promote, package, market and sell everything from fresh food to consumer durables. Ingeo natural plastic is made from plants, not oil and uses less fossil fuel resources and emits less greenhouse gases than traditional plastics. Ingeo provides a new and more responsible set of solutions for business that reflects current consumer desire for better choices and more environmentally sound products to use in their everyday lives.

Interpack is one of the key global trade exhibitions designed to showcase the latest developments in packaging production, machinery, component innovations as well as process and logistics delivery systems for food and beverages, confectionary, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and non-food consumer durables. A key destination for anyone looking for the latest developments in the packaging arena, the show hosts more than 2600 exhibitors from 57 countries and draws an audience in excess of 175,000 from 106 countries.

NatureWorks will have a booth (Hall 7a – Stand D17) inside the European Bioplastic area where attendees will be able to see and experience the full potential of the latest Ingeo innovations at the Ingeo Creative Galleries.

There are five key categories of packaging specialties particularly suitable for Ingeo including Fresh Foods, Serviceware, Beverage solutions, Film applications and Foam innovations. You will also be able to see some remarkable examples of Ingeo fiber innovations ranging from Apparel to Hometextile and Personal Care Nonwoven applications.

Attendees will have the opportunity to see all NatureWorks’ partners’ products presenting at Interpack and join our Round Table Discussion, an event that will discuss the value and merits of responsible innovation today.
