100% biodegradable bags (starch based)

Dear EFers,

I am thinking to start a 100% biodegradable bags (starch based) manufacturing unit and therefore I am looking for machinery made in EU and following questions:

Is there a website like Alibaba.com?
Does anyone know where to look for raw material suppliers?

Any additional information provided will be helpful.

Have you done market research on this? Refuse and bags are all incinerated here and don't go into landfill- so the use of biodegradable bags may not make so much sense or be so marketable, than in, say, the UK- where all sadly goes to landfill.

Isn't this what all the small 'plastic' bags provided at the fruit and veg sections of supermarkets are made of these days?
In which case you might have missed the boat as there's clearly already someone manufacturing them in very large quantities in Switzerland.

All of the new bags that Coop has at the checkout are now this type. They made this change at the same time (April this year) as they started charging CHF 0.05 for the bags.

You should be able to ask someone at the Coop to show you the box that they come in. You should be able to find the supplier (if it is not printed on the bag already).
