England based food and technology company Sous Vide Tools has launched “Sustaina Pouch”, a range of plastic-free, compostable vacuum pouches. According to an article on, the pouches are made from rice, potatoes, corn, and a fossil fuel copolymer. They can be steam cooked, microwaved, or boiled in a pan. After use, consumers can remove any non-compostable contents and add the pack to the food waste stream or compost bin. The pouches reportedly take up to six months to disintegrate but can then be used on the garden or vegetable patch.
