Tapioca is a starchy root vegetable, typically extracted from the cassava plant, commonly used to create sustainable packaging.

The starch from the tapioca root can be processed and moulded into various forms, such as containers, bags, and films. Tapioca starch is attractive due to its renewable and biodegradable nature.

Moreover, the cassava plant can grow in various climates, making it a widely available and low-cost alternative to traditional petroleum-based materials.
