ABS

This is a low cost plastic used in injection modelling. This material has a high impact resistance, strength, and stiffness. It is easy to paint and glue. Natural (beige) ABS and black ABS are FDA compliant for use in food processing applications

PLA

PLA is the most environmentally friendly solution in the domain of 3D printing when using plastic filaments. It is a more durable and hard wearing part than ABS and is much easier to use in 3D printers. It can be used for food packaging and containers. Models will have a glossier look and feel compared to ABS. PLA can also be sanded and machined.
