Host Defense® MycoBrew® Packets are BPI Certified Commercially Compostable!

Industry leader Fungi Perfecti, LLC - makers of Host Defense Mushrooms™ - is pleased to announce the specially developed material used for their single-use MycoBrew® drink mix packets has been BPI Certified as Commercially Compostable.

The successful MycoBrew line of Coffee, Matcha, Cocoa, and Mocha launched in 2021 after 3 years of pioneering development work to create a brand new, custom-crafted, plant cellulose-based material for their single-use packets. 

This cutting-edge custom packaging has officially received BPI Certification! This specially-developed packaging underwent extensive testing to confirm compliance with rigorous international compostability standards and has been certified as commercially compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI), the leading authority on compostable packaging in the US.

These convenient single-serve packets offer excellent oxygen barrier protection, shelf life, moisture barrier protection, and seal strength. You can enjoy the convenience of single-serve MycoBrew drink mixes with the peace of mind that the material is commercially compostable. 

These packets can be included in green bins for organic and yard waste pick-up where available, and anywhere that accepts commercially compostable packaging. Customers should check for local commercial composting services options available.

Regarding this impactful achievement, Betsy Bullman, Director of Sales & Marketing at Fungi Perfecti, said,

Every time we consider launching a new product, we always take into consideration what the lifecycle of the packaging will look like. While we were eager to launch our MycoBrew line, we also didn’t want to contribute to the growing concern of single-use packaging. We decided to wait until we were able to develop a brand new material that falls in alignment with our sustainability goals. We’re so excited that this cutting-edge material has achieved BPI commercially compostable certification!

Proud of this recent accomplishment, Paul Stamets, member and founder of Fungi Perfecti, LLC, said:

As leaders in this industry, we continue to walk our talk and implement new and innovative climate positive approaches. We are dedicated to take this to the next level as responsible Earth Citizens. We all can do more to help protect this planet we share.
