“We are honored to be recognized as an Edison Awards Finalist,” said Daphna Nissenbaum, TIPA Co-Founder and CEO. “TIPA’s vision is that flexible 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. We know that many consumers share our vision and desire the satisfaction of knowing that the flexible packaging they use can go back to nature; this benefits both consumer brands and the environment.”
