The Next Generation
Xampla has created the world’s first plant protein material for commercial use.
Our next generation material performs like synthetic polymers, but decomposes naturally and fully, without harming the environment.
Our mission is to replace the everyday single-use plastics you see all around, like sachets and flexible packaging films. And the less obvious, such as microplastics within liquids and lotions.

THE HIDDEN PLASTICS PROBLEM
Microplastics are commonly added to fabric softeners, shampoos and cosmetics, agricultural and industrial products.
Many end up end up in the ocean, where they are ingested by marine life, blocking digestion, affecting nutrition and working their way up the food chain, potentially to humans. Every year, Europe alone releases a bulk amount of microplastics into the environment equivalent to 10bn plastic bottles.
See how we are helping manufacturers make the transition from traditional plastics to a high performance, non-synthetic alternative:
