for a common goal
The United Packaging Forest (UPF) initiative was established to help compensate for the over 10 billion trees that are lost in the world each year and offset the CO2 emissions of the entire production chain.
We are proud to announce that our first UPF forest was planted in November 2019; and already in less than 9 months we have almost reached our original 24-month target, with over 6,000 trees – the equivalent of six forests – donated, thanks in part to our major partners.
There are several reasons, but the most important thing is that we, as an innovative company in the packaging industry, consider ACTING more important than talking. Every year we lose over 10 billion trees on our beautiful planet. And the consequences are not positive – drought, climate change, poverty, food shortages and natural disasters are direct consequences of deforestation of the earth.
Packaging is necessary for a livable world. Packaging ensures less food waste and makes efficient transport of products possible. At the same time, we must ensure that packaging does not end up in the environment and remain on the planet forever. We are also obliged within our sector to promote responsible recycling of packaging and to look for the materials with least Environmental impact.

There’s a lid for every jar! But for many packaging buyers, the question is ‘which is best?’ There is often a lot to consider – so thankfully our team of specialists is available to explain all the options.
Liners are very flexible. They are an ideal seal, reassuring users that they are the first while preventing leaks of a viscous product. Liners can also provide a barrier, for example to avoid the loss of flavours, or to extend product shelf life. Which is right for your requirements
Advantages of PET
It’s no surprise that PET is now the most widely used packaging material. Most people are aware of its combination of brightness and a high-quality glossy look – but there are so many more reasons to choose PET.
