We have always looked for alternatives to plastic with our packaging and eco-friendly molds

 

Ever since its birth, Ecopack creates its products in the name of love for the environment.

We design and manufacture our own machines, because they allow us to produce technically state-of-the-art molds, though using raw material other than plastic.

 

Paper packaging

Sustainability is one of our core values, combined with customer orientation and social responsibility.

This is why our goal is to create molds and packaging with a growingly smaller carbon footprint along the entire supply chain, and that may also be used to replace much more polluting materials such as aluminum and plastic.

 

Our molds are made of biodegradable paper with a lower impact on the planet upon disposal, but we also make it so that the molding process is quicker, thus more energy-efficient.

In the same scope, our products are partially made of recycled paper, and the molds will soon be fully compostable.

 

The alternative to single-use plastic

Plastic dumped in the ocean is a real-life issue acknowledged by the European Union, which has decided to ban single-use plastic products starting in 2021.

We had a strong passion for this topic well before the collective conscience opened its eyes on the issue of pollution caused by the massive amount of plastic products discarded in the environment.

 

Plastic has considerable technical properties: it retains liquids and grease; it may be heat-sealed; and it has a high mechanical resistance.

 

This is why – ever since we started making molds for the food sector – we have constantly worked to develop products with the same advantages as plastic, but not the same negative impact on the environment.

 

Our products already boast excellent features: they are oven and freezer-safe, they are free-standing – thus may be used without a baking tray – and are heat-sealable.

Yet, we aim to develop our products more and more, which is why we cooperate with research centers to find innovative systems and materials to optimize manufacturing processes and make our customers happy.

 

Social responsibility is a foundation of our business philosophy, and in 2021 we have drafted our first-ever CSR Policy, which will soon be online on our website.
