TIPA to show pioneering compostable solutions at Packaging Innovations

Global packaging developer, TIPA, is set to preview its pioneering range of compostable packaging solutions in Birmingham, UK, this February

The company is exhibiting at Packaging Innovations– one of the world’s largest packaging conferences.

TIPA’s compostable packaging offers the ultimate alternative to plastic packaging, boasting the same durability, shelf-life, barrier protection and transparency, without the detrimental impact on the environment.

The world currently produces 141 million tonnes of plastic packaging a year, a third of which leaks from waste management systems, polluting the environment[1].

In the UK alone, plastic packaging accounts for 70 per cent of the total plastic waste produced[2].

Over the past 10 years, TIPA has worked tirelessly to develop solutions to the plastic packaging crisis. 

TIPA has offered packaging solutions to UK-based Riverford Organics and Waitrose Duchy, as well as international brands such as Tour de France sponsor Santini and fashion brand Gabriela Hearst.   

TIPA’s compostable packaging is fully certified to biodegrade in both home or industrial composters, leaving no trace on the environment and offering the ultimate convenience for end consumers.

Using the latest developments in technology, TIPA has launched a wide range of fully compostable packaging including coffee pods, zipper bags, net packaging, resealable bags and more.

Recent developments include TIPA’s fully compostable and recyclable paddy straw trays crafted from the waste product of rice.

The trays not only prevent air pollution, caused by burning agricultural waste, but also offer a supremely eco-conscious alternative to conventional plastic packaging.

In addition to developing compostable packaging, as a founding member of the Compostable Coalition UK, which includes brands such as Tesco, Marks and Spencer and Ocado, TIPA is working to ensure compostable packaging is fully integrated with the bio-waste recycling infrastructure in the UK.

In 2022 the Compostable Coalition UK announced it had received a £1.2M grant from UKRI to identify policy and legislative interventions for compostable solutions to address the global plastics challenge.

Exhibiting at Packaging Innovations, TIPA is looking for brands to join them in embracing compostable packaging to create a plastic-free future for people and planet.

TIPA’s CEO and CO-Founder Daphna Nissenbaum said: “Our mission is to end the packaging sector’s plastic problem. For too long, plastic packaging has been seen as the ultimate solution, however, TIPA’s technological developments have created compostable packaging that mirrors the beneficial properties of plastic, yet leaves no trace at end of life.

“At Packaging Innovations, we look forward to meeting with brands who want to meet the consumer demand for eco-conscious packaging and develop a plastic-free world.”
