Treleoni Earns USDA Certified Biobased Product Certification and Label
Treleoni has earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label for its Provito (for Life) Pads. The USDA Certified Biobased Product Label verifies that the products amount of renewable biobased ingredients meets or exceeds levels set by USDA. Biobased products are finished or intermediate materials composed in whole or in significant part of agricultural, forestry, or marine ingredients.
“We are pleased to bring Provito Pads to market. They represent our commitment to quality and integrity in the manufacturing and sales of biobased products,” says Rick Mazzoli, President, Treleoni LLC. “Provito Pads are the only floor pads to prove themselves and earn the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label.”
All biobased amount claims are verified by independent labs and monitored by the USDA. Consumers may feel secure in the accuracy of the biobased amount and be empowered in making better-informed purchasing decisions.
"We are proud that Treleoni has earned the USDA Certified Biobased Product Label," said Ron Buckhalt, USDA BioPreferred Program Manager. "Biobased products add value to renewable agriculture commodities, create jobs in rural communities, and help our nation decrease its reliance on foreign-sourced and non-renewable petroleum."
The label is estimated to be on certified products and available for consumers by May 2015. The following is an example of the label:
The USDA BioPreferred program was created by the Farm Security and Rural Investment Act of 2002 (2002 Farm Bill), and expanded by the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (2008 Farm Bill). The purpose is to increase the purchase and use of biobased products. The United States Department of Agriculture manages the program. Products that meet the USDA BioPreferred program requirements carry a distinctive label for easier identification by the consumer.
