In January this year, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) BioPreferred program launched a new labeling initiative to identify biobased products or packaging, commercial or industrial, whose main ingredients are renewable plant, animal, marine, or forestry materials.

The BioPreferred program is now comprised of two parts: a biobased product procurement preference program for federal agencies and a voluntary labeling initiative for the broad-scale marketing of biobased products. This USDA biobased product label indicates that a product has been independently certified to meet or exceed BioPreferred standards for biobased content (ASTM Test Method D6866). This new labeling will promote the increased sale and use of biobased products.

Federal agencies and their contactors are required to give preferential consideration to these designated products when making purchases. The new label will make identification of these products easier for Federal buyers, and will increase awareness of these high-value products in other markets.
