The Cardia BioPlastics team would like to welcome Deanna Crawshaw. Deanna joins the Cardia team as National Sales Manager responsible for Council and Retail business. She will play an instrumental role in supporting the next stage of growth for the Cardia Bioplastics business as Cardia seeks to accelerate plans to launch new brands in Australia and International markets.

Deanna comes to Cardia with many years’ experience in developing retail sales within the FMCG and consumer goods industry. Her knowledge extends to marketing and manufacturing, and she has worked across many products from cookware to organic skincare. With a degree in chemistry and a core competency in building strong working relationships, she is well positioned to become an important contributor to progressing the cause for Bioplastics.

Deanna is passionate about the global movement towards Bioplastics and the opportunity that working with Cardia provides to contribute towards this. Key to her role will be working with Councils to support the introduction of compostable bags as they adopt food diversion programs, diverting food waste from general waste to organic waste processors. Also, key will be working with Retailers to give consumers increased access to compostable products as they seek more sustainable alternatives to conventional PE-based products.

Deanna looks forward to working with the ABA and its members and AORA to progress the case for Compostable Product use and associated waste treatment infrastructure in the place of conventional plastics.

Cardia is excited to welcome Deanna to the team and looks forward to her contribution to this pivotal next phase of Bio Plastics growth.
