Who we are

We combine passion for technology with care for nature.

As your partner of choice in achieving your commercial and sustainability goals, we use only the best-in-class technologies across all our processes.

Who are GBI

  • Founded in January 2023, expressly to manufacture and market state-of-the-art biodegradable PLA.
  • We are the first of our kind in the MENA region, so we’re perfectly located to capitalise on rapidly growing markets for sustainable products.
  • We are fully aligned with all circular economy and waste reduction regulations within the region.
  • Our biodegradable PLA substitutes polluting fossil plastics that possess a high carbon footprint.
  • Our manufacturing process is highly sustainable. Any product along our multi stage process is either a raw material to produce PLA or a sales product for human nutrition, animal nutrition, fertilisers and construction.
