The StalkMarket Story

StalkMarket was started in 2003 to provide an environmentally and economically viable alternative to traditional single-use paper- and plastic-based products.  StalkMarket began its distribution in the United States in 2003 at New Seasons Markets throughout the Portland area.

StalkMarket’s core line of products is made from a sugarcane fiber-based paperboard called bagasse.  The material is made from upcycled sugarcane waste recovered from sugar refineries.  The crushed stalks are taken to a processing plant where they are converted into paperboard in much the same way as wood pulp is used for cardboard.  Bagasse can be molded in to a variety of shapes and continues to be used in many of our products.  These products are compostable.

As technology continues to develop and evolve so does StalkMarket’s product line.  In 2007 StalkMarket began using Ingeo® biopolymers from NatureWorks®.  Ingeo polymer is similar to hydrocarbon-based thermoplastics with one very important difference it is made from plants instead of oil.  Ingeo polymers are used in StalkMarket’s Planet Plus and Jaya product lines.  Like all of the company’s products they are 100% compostable.  StalkMarket distributes its products to restaurants and industrial food service customers through wholesale distributors.
