  • A small company like Floreon finds itself at the top. Is this the result of excellent World Class Marketing ?
  • We double checked and found Nativia was above Novamont for June.
  • Novamont seems to be the most famous brand….What did you expect? Mater-Bi comes also in the top ten. Italians know a few things about marketing apparently.
  • BioAmber is bankrupt but the brand is still popular.
  • Metabolix became Yield 10 Bioscience, and is still more popular than Yield 10 bioscience.
  • What a Great marketing from Bio-On !
  • Arkema and Braskem in the top 11  … of course. They did a great job in the past and Braskem is still doing it today.
  • Arctic Biomaterials can still surf on their past Awards communications.
  • Total Corbion on 14th … a bit disappointing for their calibre.
  • First Japanese company is “Mitsubishi Chemicals” on 15th place …  A bit disappointing when you see how much effort the Japanese Government made…
  • Neste on 27th place … a bit disappointing for this calibre.
  • DSM, Roquette and Futamura …. come’on guys ! Seriously ?


Please take following points into consideration: Not all companies are equal.

  • Some companies are only active in bioplastics while others are also active in traditional plastics.
  • Not all companies produce the same type of bioplastics.
  • Not all companies have the same size or marketing budget.
  • Not all companies have their same place in the bioplastic value chain.
  • Some companies have brighter people on board.
  • Some companies spend their marketing budget more wisely.
  • Some companies did an excellent marketing job in the past and can still reap the fruits today.


Ladies and Gentlemen, you should really find out what these companies are doing.
