About GROWN bio
We are a biotech company that makes revolutionary packaging products. Our technology is based on biology: we use mycelium (mushroom roots) and natural waste fibers to literally grow packaging products instead of manufacturing them.
Our objective is to lead Europe out of the plastic foam problem. With our Mushroom® Packaging we can leave a cleaner, less polluted planet for future generations.
Founded in 2018 by Jan Berbee & Arthur Moree, Grown started in a garage but is today a scale up with a factory in Heerewaarden. Our team now has 12 members and is growing. We are the reliable partner to many industries in Europe who are eager to find truly harmless packaging. Our solution helps clients transform their businesses towards sustainability.
Also, we are the proud winner of the KvK Top 100: selected as the most innovative SME company of the Netherlands! Sustainable production and respect for each other are values of our company. In June 2022 we were awarded as ‘Most Inclusive Employer’ of our region.
