INCA Renewtech recognized in Game Changers Report Celebrating Canada’s Female Led Natural and Bio-Based Companies
Natural Products Canada releases first female-focused report for International Women’s Day
(March 8, 2023 – Vancouver, British Columbia) – INCA Renewtech is pleased to announce the company’s inclusion in Game Changers: Leading Companies. Powered by Women, an initiative led by Natural Products Canada (NPC). This new list of over 100 companies provides an interesting look at the women leading Canada’s growing natural and bio-based industries. INCA Renewtech makes hemp fibre composites in auto interiors, RVs, and boats and the bio-plastics for boats, cutlery, kids toys, furniture and more that are stronger, lighter and cost competitive.
“I’m delighted to see INCA recognized for our work to help save the Amazon rainforest – which is vital for a healthy planet – and replace petroleum-based plastics which are polluting our beaches and leaching toxic chemicals into the environment. Our products are made from hemp grown in the Canadian Prairie which sequesters three times more carbon than trees. Our manufacturing will be waste free and radically reduce manufacturing emissions, in comparison with the raw materials that we’re replacing,” says Camille Saltman, Chief Marketing and Sustainability Officer, a member of the founding management team of INCA Renewtech.
NPC is a national organization that supports bio-based innovation, and this first of its kind Game Changers report showcases the breadth of female leadership in Canadian companies that are creating economic and social impact through their natural and bio-based products. The report features companies from across the country with products designed for consumers seeking new options for their health and wellness such as food, beauty and personal care items, as well as industrial products such as bio resins and biopesticides that help corporations looking to reduce their carbon footprint and meet their sustainability goals.
“Canadians should be proud of these innovative companies that are delivering better, healthier options for people and the planet,” says Shelley King, CEO, Natural Products Canada. “The women leading these companies are truly making a difference, and we are very proud to provide this platform to introduce them to new customers and partners.”

INCA Renewtech uses Canadian Prairie grown hemp fibre to design and manufacture car interiors, RV sidewalls boat cores and more that will be lighter, cost competitive and recyclable. That means better fuel and EV battery efficiency and safer vehicles. We’ve even developed a strong, bio-based replacement for plastic knives and forks, furniture, kids’ toys, and other consumer products. That means single use cutlery can be compostable and consumer products can be recyclable. Our products sequester carbon, reduce emissions, water usage and waste, while delivering stronger, lighter, cost-competitive solutions to our customers.
