Compostable Packaging Track

TIPA

TIPA

Tipa’s vision is that flexible plastic packaging will have the same end-of-life organic waste has, yet also offer consumers and brands the same durability and shelf life they have come to expect of ordinary plastics. Yet bio-degradable and compostable packaging can only succeed if it has the same protective functionality as any equivalent “ordinary” plastic package – act as a barrier between food and the environment. It should also seamlessly fit into today’s manufacturing practices.  This is the flexible packaging Tipa’s invention is creating.
