The product we innovated in 2006 and our signature line. VerTerra is the leader in palm dinnerware production and the only integrated manufacturer of palm leaf plates.
Sourced from leftover wood and wrapped in rice paper, our Balsa Wood product line is strong, stackable, and oil + water resistant.
Our customized ridging makes this the strongest wooden cutlery on the market and also more comfortable in your hand.
Made of 100% renewable resources and BPI-certified compostable, VerTerra’s Dinnerware From Fallen Leaves™ is the stylishly sustainable alternative to disposable paper and plastic plates. No trees are ever harvested or cut down for this line. No chemicals, waxes, dyes
or additives are applied.
We continuously work towards creating innovative products and being even more sustainable than before. When we learned how many tree stumps are left by the saw milling industry we invented a whole new line. Our Balsa Wood Line offers Patented Collapsible Boxes, Smallware Trays, Patent Pending Serveware Trays, and Patent Pending Cheese + Charcuterie Boards. The sleek designs meld functionality and sustainability. This line, made of balsa wood with a rice paper liner, has everything you need for professional caterers or home entertaining: from 1oz. to 10lb containers for buffet or drop off we have a full selection of items for eco-friendly catering and meal service.
We offer customization on both Palm Leaf and Balsa Wood Products. Impress your clients/customers by adding your logo + enhance your brand recognition.
