Idea

pluumo is a sustainable thermal packaging material made from waste feathers.

To prevent spoilage, fresh food deliveries need thermal packaging to keep ingredients chilled. Unfortunately, plastics such as expanded polystyrene (EPS) are normally used and food packaging generated 141,000 tons of EPS waste in the EU in 2019.

Our patent-pending material matches the performance of EPS, keeping items chilled for up to 40 hours. Made from an abundant waste resource, it is designed to be composted or reused. Thanks to feathers, food deliveries can become more sustainable.

• Launched in 2018 to supply Willowbrook Farm (UK) - 10k units to date

• Increased batch production to an estimated 4,000 units a day

• Accredited laboratory results suggest passing of composting standard EN13432

• Secured £450k in grants/awards including £140k via InnovateUK

Growth is occurring in the $137b online food delivery industry. Gousto (meal kits) matched their 2019 revenue by June 2020, selling 5m meals a month. Plus, 74% of consumers would pay more for green packaging, with e-commerce sustainable packaging predicted to be worth $65b by 2023. 'Plastic Taxes' could further accelerate change.

This year, we received over 50 initial enquiries from companies interested in using pluumo for their deliveries. Now we plan to scale production and expanding into the wider UK market.

Help us fight plastic, one feather at a time!
