Brad LaPray, the founder of BiologiQ, was raised in Idaho. In his youth, Brad spent long hours working in the fields and fell in love with farming. He learned to work hard and developed an appreciation for nature that continues to motivate him today.
After spending twenty years working professionally on the East Coast, Brad returned to Idaho with a renewed passion for the agriculture industry and a newfound interest in bioplastics.
Bioplastics were not a new thing, but in 2010, Brad set out to make them better. In 2011, he launched BiologiQ with the intent of creating a useful plastic from the excess starch created during potato processing, which led to the invention of Eco Starch Resin™ (ESR).
Over the next five years (2011-2016), BiologiQ spent millions of dollars developing their bioplastic technology so that plastic manufacturers could use BiologiQ’s ESR on their existing equipment to make a wide variety of sustainable plastic products.
BiologiQ has grown from a simple concept to an industry-leading sustainable bioplastic resin provider.
