Does Cruz Foam Fit in the Market?

Cruz Foam has potential to disrupt part of the Biodegradable Packaging industry but Vericool is its biggest competitor. Cruz Foam is developing compostable flexible food packaging material. Its product is designed for microorganisms to break down the product into water, carbon dioxide, inorganic compounds, and biomass in a compost pile and leave zero toxic residue. Cruz Foam has had a successful case study with Roam Mushroom Crisps and secured $1 million in NSF Grants with its technology. Additionally, Cruz Foam seems focused on replacing Styrofoam with its biodegradable foam. 

Cruz Foam’s technology is most likely going to be the deciding factor in its pursuit of a market position. Vericool, a leader in the Biodegradable Packaging Patent Forecast®, has 42 patent assets in the Biodegradable Packaging Patent Forecast®, with most of them directed towards compostable inserts and compostable insulation for shipping containers. Additionally, Cryopak is also active in the space as well as Simple Container Solutions, which already has a patent application for a recyclable cellulose-based insulated liner. 

Cruz Foam may be in trouble due to the sheer size of Vericool’s patent portfolio. Don’t miss a thing in the Biodegradable Packaging Patent Forecast® by making sure you are checking out the weekly insights.
