Evoco and Miami to Scale Authentic Sustainability in Footwear by Expanding Access to FATES™️ in Europe

[Toronto, October 18th] – Evoco Ltd., an innovation company focused on creating sustainable plant-based materials, announced today a partnership with Miami, a leading Italian insole manufacturer specializing in high-quality componentry for global footwear brands. 

The partnership is part of Evoco’s plan to expand its global supply chain for its FATES™️ eco-foam technology in Europe to meet its footwear customers’ demand.

“After recently opening our own facility in Vietnam our team was in the search for large-scale production of high-quality footwear componentry to meet the European market demand for transparent, measurable, and verifiable sustainability. We see Miami and their expertise as the optimal partner in the region,” comments Evoco’s CEO, Jason Robinson.

As the company develops its plant-based chemistry platform to impact a wide range of applications, Evoco remains committed to servicing the footwear industry.

“Footwear remains critical to our growth and the “Made in Italy” label perfectly embodies our approach to material development in this space. Italian shoemakers, and the team at Miami in particular, have a long tradition of taking a primary care to the quality of the materials being used, just like we do at Evoco by replacing oil with plant-based ingredients selected for their performance attributes.” – Jason Robinson, CEO of Evoco

The team at Miami brings decades of footwear craftsmanship to Evoco’s work with FATES™️.
“By forming this close relationship with Evoco, we will make it easier than ever before for our brand partners to design, scale, and launch products with their high-impact materials technologies,” says Claudio Bordoni, CEO at Miami. “After several months of engineering and testing, we can now secure long-term opportunities in a growing and sustainable field, and we foresee exponential growth potential in the green transformation of the footwear industry”.
