An award winning Dutch company with over 100 years' experience in almost all materials (except glass and cans and particularly in products made of rPAPER), is looking for a specific type of manufacturer.

Partners are preferably sought in Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain and/or the U.K.

Description

Description: 

The Dutch company was formed in 2016 with a team of four highly skilled persons with over 100 years of experience in the packaging industry. The company has a robust Dutch partner with two strong licensee partners with its own specialist manufacturing facility, covering a range of industry sectors (food, drinks and non-food including agriculture).

Specialising in rPAPER, the company offers a bespoke development service from initial concept, drawing and samples. The company offers its existing range of high-performance packaging innovations. It is skilled in the development of solutions to unsolved problems.
Although the company has a rPAPER specialism, it also offers products using a range of other materials such as plastics, films and coatings; in folding carton, injection moulding, thermoforming, molded fibre, printing technology and film extrusion. Specialist food approved materials are also available along with specific additives offering properties.

The company offers three main solution-based product families:
Food packaging solutions
- (soft)fruit packaging made of rPAPER
- snack vegetables packaging made of rPAPER
- leak- and fat free proof packaging for home delivery
- packaging to pack cocoa, milk powder, etc
- Innopure recyclable laminates
- Easy Steam

Drink packaging solution
- cold drinks TO GO packaging; leak-free
- hot drinks TO GO packaging (under development)

Non-Food packaging solution
- non-blister packaging to replace blister packaging
- an innovation with a child-resistant closure
- tid bits for fasteners like: nuts and bolts, screws, nails

The company offers two main services: developed products that are on the market and ready to sell, and development of products both generic and custom made.

The company is looking to expand its market throughout Europe and the rest of the world. Thus, the company seeks long term partnerships with companies which can produce and sell the above products and services in the framework of a manufacturing/licensing agreement. Partners are preferably sought in Canada, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain and/or the United Kingdom

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
The company develops new packaging and technologies and know-how as well for generic as custom-made solutions, with a preference for unsolved problems. It operates independently and is not tied to a choice of materials or production technology. As all design and mock-ups are done in-house, a short lead-time is offered for tool manufacturing and prototyping. rPaper is much more durable than plastic variants such as PP, rPP, PET and rPET and we substantiate this with a footprint (LCA). The company recently ended in the top three at Sustainable Tuesday event supported by the Dutch Ministry in the category of sustainable entrepreneurs. Winner of the carton excellence award in the category fast convenience foods in 2018 and this year also nominated with a sustainable and circular soft fruit packaging innovation. Nominated for the 2020 'Golden Nut' award with an easy steam packaging for meals and meal components.
