Plastic-free

food packaging

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 tailored to your requirements. We are thus replacing existing or necessary (bio)plastic or polystyrene for numerous food packaging. Avoid environmentally harmful plastic in your packaging for a plastic-free future as a pioneer in your industry and to protect our environment.

On the way to natural packaging made from cast pulp, we use fresh fiber raw materials for sustainable circular economy concepts. This enables us to secure the goals of constant availability of raw materials and long-term profitability. For use in direct food contact, we combine our fiber products with the plastic-free raw materials and coatings we have developed.

Certification according to the hygiene standards for packaging manufacturers of primary packaging — BRCGS - Global standard for packaging materials and management systems according to ISO 9001

PAPACKS® Virgin Fiber — Pulp

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

PAPACKS® Industrial Hemp

Commercial hemp is a rapidly renewable source of raw materials that can be harvested in a short time and thus makes an important contribution to sustainability. During growth, hemp plants absorb large amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere, thereby actively contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and combating climate change. In addition, hemp plants are very 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 the 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 pulp packaging

Sustainability

Our cast fiber packaging is sustainably produced 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. 

Raw material-independent pulp production

Pulp is a versatile material that can be made from a variety of sustainable raw materials, making it optimally adaptable to different requirements and environmental regulations. An 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, pulp molding can help to reduce the ecological footprint in production and thus make an important contribution to the protection of our natural resources.

Suitable for sea freight applications

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

Shock absorbing / shock absorbing / dimensional stability

With molded pulp packaging, you benefit from excellent shock absorption, which ensures the safe transport of your products. Depending on the design, the fiber cast molded parts can be easily deformed and still retain the necessary stability, especially when the packaging is impacted directly during transport.

Heat and cold protection

Pulp can be an excellent insulator and, with proper construction, provides some protection to products from heat or cold. Molded pulp does not break on impact like frozen packaging with thermoformed plastic parts. It is temperature resistant in excess of +100 degrees Celsius, making it an ideal choice for applications exposed to high temperatures.

In this way, processes can be accelerated in industry, such as in the glass production of bottles, which as a result do not have to be cooled first before they are placed in transport trays, as is necessary with plastic trays.

Automated and robotic use

Fiber cast molded parts are suitable for use in automated and robot-controlled processes. Their precise and consistent shape allows them to be easily handled and packaged by robots and automated systems. This enables efficient and cost-effective production that meets the needs of modern industries and optimizes the use of molded pulp parts in various industries and applications.

Stackable / nestable

Molded fiber packaging is three-dimensional and designed to save space compared to voluminous fiber materials such as EPS molded parts. Thanks to this construction, our packaging can be easily nested and stacked, which facilitates transport and significantly reduces the storage capacity required.

Diverse and individual

Thanks to its flexibility, molded pulp packaging can be produced in different shapes and sizes, making it a versatile and customized 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 - be it for an organic or luxurious feel. The fibers we use give the molded fiber parts a white, high-quality look that highlights your product.

Recyclable / disposal

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

Water resistant and abrasion protection

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 when exposed to moisture or condensation. Our coating also offers possible abrasion protection for sensitive products.

In order to guarantee the optimal 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 needs.

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. Through our certification according to 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

Pulp packaging is future-proof and environmentally friendly because it is made from renewable raw materials. In contrast to materials made from fossil raw materials, cast fiber offers permanent availability based on the continuous availability of renewable raw materials.
