Tahsin Dag

Founder & CEO – inventor and founder of PAPACKS®
President of the European Moulded Pulp Producer Association (EMPPA)
CEO OF THE YEAR (European CEO Awards 2024)

A visionary and marketing expert who is always one step ahead of the market. He lives by the guiding principle:

“There is always a solution! Everything that is conceivable is also feasible.”

His professional career began in the beverage industry, where he held key positions at well-known companies. These experiences honed his management skills and fuelled his ambition to revolutionize the packaging industry. Tahsin’s goal has always been to create a world of packaging that eschews plastic and focuses on a harmony of functionality and design.

This led to the invention and patenting of the PAPACKS® tray system, an environmentally friendly solution for the transport and return of uniform containers. This was the beginning of numerous other pioneering inventions and developments for alternative raw materials, natural coatings, packaging and logistics solutions and the founding of today’s PAPACKS®.

In addition to his role at PAPACKS®, Tahsin has been President of the European Moulded Pulp Producer Association (EMPPA) since 2022. EMPPA plays a key role in representing the interests of companies along the value chain of molded fiber. This organization advocates for circular packaging products made from molded fiber with the aim of reducing dependence on tree-based resources.

Today, Tahsin Dag is not only a leader in his field, but also a trusted advisor on sustainability for companies and politicians across Europe. His extensive knowledge and foresight make him a visionary and marketing expert who is always ahead of market trends.
