USDA Certification achieved by UKL's Pineapple Leaf Fiber

The Pineapple Leaves Fiber (PALF) can now display a unique USDA label that highlights its percentage of biobased content. Third-party verification for a product's biobased content is administered through the USDA BioPreferred® Program, which strives to increase the development, purchase, and use of biobased products.

Biobased products help address climate change by offering renewable alternatives to petroleum-based products; sequester carbon dioxide, lowering the concentration of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere that contribute to climate change; create and expand markets; are generally safer for people and the environment than their petroleum-based counterparts; and represent incredible technological advances and innovations.

"We applaud UKL Enterprise Co., Ltd. for earning the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label," said Vernell Thompson, USDA BioPreferred Program. "The label is intended to help spur economic development, create new jobs, and provide new markets for farm commodities . But the label also makes it easier for consumers and federal buyers to locate biobased products and consider planet-friendly options during purchase decisions. By having their products become USDA Certified Biobased, UKL Enterprise Co., Ltd. joins an expanding list of businesses combatting Inaccurate marketing claims and the practice of greenwashing, while also contributing to a thriving bioeconomy that decreases our reliance on petroleum."
