Quality Policy

1. Purpose
Xampla and its brand, Morro, offer a range of plastic free, plant-based materials that are strong, natural and fully biodegradable that protect and deliver products and ingredients without harming the planet. Our materials eliminate the most polluting plastics and enable companies to meet changing consumer and regulatory requirements, where single-use plastic and intentionally added microplastics are becoming restricted. Xampla was the UK’s first university spin-out to become a certified B Corp company recognising our commitment to our mission to address plastic pollution, and to balance profit with purpose. The employees of the Company represent its greatest asset.
