Food packaging

Made from renewable raw materials

FOODSAFE + PAPACKS® Plant-Based-Coating for barrier protection

Production and development of food packaging

We develop and produce plastic-free food packaging that is individually adapted to your requirements. In this way, we replace existing or deemed necessary (organic) plastic or polystyrene for numerous types of food packaging. Avoid environmentally harmful plastic in your packaging for a plastic-free future as a pioneer in your industry and for the protection of our environment.

On the way to natural packaging made of molded fiber, we use virgin fiber raw materials for sustainable circular economy concepts. This enables us to ensure the constant availability of raw materials and long-term economic efficiency. For use in direct contact with food, we combine our fiber products with the plastic-free raw materials and coatings we have developed.

PAPACKS® Virgin Fiber - Molded Fiber

Cellulose/fresh fiber is a first-class raw material in the “virgin pulp” category that is ideal for packaging with high requirements. This raw material comes from FSC®-certified, sustainably managed forests and thus guarantees an environmentally friendly and responsible origin. The use of cellulose/virgin pulp in packaging solutions helps to reduce the environmental impact while ensuring the quality and functionality of the packaging.

PAPACKS® Industrial-Hemp

Industrial hemp is a rapidly renewable source of raw materials that can be harvested in a short time and therefore makes an important contribution to sustainability. During growth, hemp plants absorb large amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere, actively contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and combating climate change. In addition, hemp plants are highly adaptable and require less water than many other crops. This makes hemp an environmentally friendly and resource-saving alternative.

PAPACKS® Plant-Based-Coating​

A plastic-free solution specifically designed for OTR (Oxygen Transmission Rate) and WVTR (Water Vapor Transmission Rate) barriers offers additional benefits for sensitive products that require fiber bonding or necessary moisture resistance. This innovative technology makes it possible to eliminate the use of plastics in packaging while ensuring product quality and shelf life. This opens up new possibilities for sustainable packaging designs and materials that meet the needs of different industries and applications.

The most important properties of molded fiber packaging


Our molded fiber packaging is produced sustainably in Germany. We only use renewable raw materials and fibers that are FSC® certified and come from sustainable forestry. Our production facilities are powered by renewable energy. This enables us to achieve an optimal ecological footprint compared to packaging based on fossil raw materials, such as plastic packaging. 

Molded fiber production independent of raw materials

Molded fiber is a versatile material that can be made from a variety of sustainable raw materials, making it ideally suited to different requirements and environmental regulations. One example of such a sustainable raw material is industrial hemp, which is characterized by its rapid regrowth rate and environmentally friendly properties. By using various sustainable raw materials, molded fiber can help to reduce the ecological footprint of production and thus make an important contribution to conserving our natural resources.

Suitable for sea freight applications

Molded fiber are suitable for use in the sea freight sector. Thanks to their robust and resistant nature, they can withstand the special requirements of sea transportation and ensure the safe and efficient transport of goods over long distances and under different environmental and climatic conditions.

Shock-absorbing / shock-absorbing / dimensional stability

With molded fiber packaging, you benefit from excellent shock absorption, which ensures the safe transport of your products. Depending on the design, the molded parts made of molded fiber can be easily deformed and still retain their necessary stability, especially in the event of impacts directly on the packaging during transport.

Heat and cold protection

Molded fiber can be an excellent insulating material and, with proper construction, can protect products from heat or cold to a certain extent. Molded fiber does not break on impact like frozen packaging with plastic thermoformed parts. It is temperature resistant at over +100 degrees Celsius, making it an ideal choice for applications exposed to high temperatures.

This can speed up processes in industry, such as in the production of glass bottles, which do not have to be cooled before they are placed in transport trays, as is necessary with plastic trays.

Automated and robot-controlled use

Molded fiber are suitable for use in automated and robot-controlled processes. Due to their precise and consistent shape, they can be easily handled and packaged by robots and automated systems. This enables efficient and cost-effective production that meets the requirements of modern industries and optimizes the use of molded fiber in various industries and applications.

Stackable / nestable

Molded fiber packaging is three-dimensional and space-saving compared to bulky fiber materials such as EPS molded parts. Thanks to this design, our packaging can be easily nested and stacked, which makes transportation easier and significantly reduces the storage capacity required.

Diverse and individual

Thanks to their flexibility, molded fiber packaging can be produced in various shapes and sizes, making them a versatile and individual solution for the sustainable design of a wide range of products and applications.

Through various manufacturing processes, we can offer individual degrees of fineness for molded fiber parts – whether for an organic or luxurious feel. The fibers we use give the molded fiber parts a white and high-quality look that makes your product stand out.

Recyclable / disposal

Molded fiber packaging is fully recyclable and can be easily incorporated into existing recycling systems. Our molded fiber parts are PTS (Paper Technology Foundation) tested and therefore suitable for return in waste paper. 

Wasserresistent und Abriebschutz

PAPACKS® Plant-Based-Coating

Thanks to our innovative coating technology and the PAPACKS® Plant-Based-Coating, molded fiber packaging can be made water-resistant to keep the packaging in shape in the event of moisture or condensation. Our coating also offers potential abrasion protection for sensitive products.

To ensure the optimum solution for your product, it is important for us to understand the entire packaging process in your workflow. Our experts work closely with you to develop customized solutions that meet your requirements.

Made in Germany

Our production site in Germany is one of the largest producers of molded fiber parts made from renewable raw materials in Europe. Thanks to our certification in accordance with the BRCGS standard for packaging materials and DIN9001:2015, we guarantee the highest quality standards and high delivery availability for our customers.

A decision for the future

Molded fiber packaging is future-proof and environmentally friendly as it is made from renewable raw materials. In contrast to materials made from fossil raw materials, molded fiber offers long-term availability based on the continuous availability of renewable raw materials.
