What if our flexible food packaging was just like an orange peel, and returned back to nature immediately after its use?
Bio-materials have been around for more than 20 years; yet, they haven’t delivered on the promise of bringing the same packaging usefulness as conventional plastic and then returning 100% back to nature, with no harmful impact. TIPA’s technology is about making the promise of bio-materials real, based on deep technology innovation and multiple patents.
The vision behind TIPA was to resolve the challenge of creating sustainable, flexible packaging by creating advanced bio-materials. We envision packaging that can be returned back to nature after it is used, just like an orange peel becomes a part of the food waste stream.
A key technology requirement was to ensure that our flexible bio-material is as good as conventional plastic in terms of:
- Shelf life and durability
- Sealing strength
Our products have the same mechanical and optical properties as most conventional plastics – serving consumers and manufactures. Consumers enjoy the same level of packaging functionality. Manufacturers get bio-materials that meet all their manufacturing requirements and that is adaptable to their current packaging and production practices.
TIPA’s IP and know-how encompass resin, multi-layer films structures, laminates and more, enabling the creation of optimal solutions for any specific application with any desired properties. TIPA’s patented technology and strong manufacturing know-how solve a variety of issues concerning the applicability of bio-materials to flexible packaging.
The company has a strong professional team that consists of a group of researchers and PHDs, professional experts in chemistry and bio-plastics, industrial experts and food engineers. Its team is 100% committed to make bio-based compostable packaging work in the real world and reach a mass of consumers.
