Swedbrand Teams Up with Biotrem for a Greener Future!


We are pleased to announce the beginning of an exciting collaboration between Swedbrand and Biotrem, Polish innovative start-up company that develops compostable and edible wheat bran-based tableware.

Biotrem’s tableware production process was invented by Mr. Jerzy Wysocki, whose family’s milling traditions date back to the beginning of the twentieth century.

Their modern and booming production facility offers a wide range of fully biodegradable tableware and cutlery produced from natural and edible wheat bran.


Biotrem’s technologies are protected by numerous international patents. Clean, environmentally friendly technological process of manufacturing of disposable wheat bran tableware is based on natural raw materials – wheat bran and small amounts of water. The rest is done by high pressure and high temperature.


What is bran?

Bran, also known as miller’s bran, is the hard-outer layer of cereal grain – wheat, rye or oat. It is rich in dietary fiber and essential fatty acids and contains significant quantities of starch, protein, vitamins, and dietary minerals. It is also a source of phytic acid, an anti-nutrient that prevents nutrient absorption.


Biotrem’s disposable products, made from wheat bran, are an excellent alternative to most disposable tableware, i.e. made from paper or plastic, the production and use of which is burdensome to the environment.

The production process does not require significant amounts of water, mineral resources, or chemical compounds. From 1 ton of pure, edible wheat bran they can produce up to 10,000 units of plates or bowls.

What’s more important, these products are fully biodegradable – through composting – in just 30 days!
