PrimeWare Certifications

Primeware products are made from sustainable resources; this means the raw materials used in creating these items are renewable annually.

Our products are white in color due to the use of only the highest-grade bagasse. This is a by-product of the sugarcane refining process.

Primeware also produces a line of tan color sugarcane fiber products. They also contain an additive for moisture and grease resistance. Please note that all manufacturers of molded-fiber products use a similar additive. The additive is FDA approved and does not affect the composability of the products.
