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 an orange 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
  • Transparency
  • Sealing strength
  • Printability
  • Flexibility

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.
