What if our flexible food packaging acted just like an orange peel, and returned back to nature immediately after its use?
Bio-materials have been around for more than 20 years, but they haven’t delivered on the promise of bringing the same packaging usefulness as conventional plastic while returning 100% back to nature, with no harmful impact. TIPA’s technology is about making the promise of bio-materials real, based on deep technological 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 a banana peel becomes a part of the food waste stream.
A key technological 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 both consumers and manufacturers. Consumers enjoy the same level of packaging functionality. Manufacturers receive bio-materials that meet all their manufacturing needs, materials that are adaptable to their current packaging and production practices.
TIPA’s IP and know-how encompass resin, multi-layer film 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 consisting of a group of researchers, doctors, professional experts in chemistry and bio-plastics, industrial experts and food engineers. The TIPA team is 100% committed to making bio-based, compostable packaging work in the real world and reach a mass of consumers.
