BioPak has announced a partnership with Swedish-based accessory supplier Duni, a deal that will launch Biopak’s range of sustainable packaging solutions across Europe and the Asia Pacific region.
“This partnership is a great opportunity to reduce plastic pollution and fight the war on waste on a global scale,” BioPak CEO Gary Smith says.
“BioPak started back in 2006 with a simple vision – a world without waste. We were first to market offering sustainable, environmentally adapted packaging in Australia, expanding soon after to New Zealand.
“Since then, BioPak has experienced unprecedented growth and we are delighted to partner with Duni in taking our ethos to the global stage, working with a company that shares our values in sustainability and customer prioritisation.”
BioPak says the partnership with Duni will provide a platform for long-term international expansion.
“We have admired BioPak’s consistent promise to provide sustainable products to the foodservice industry, and are now looking forward to collaborating with Gary, Richard and their fantastic team in our common mission,” Duni CEO Johan Sundelin says.
BioPak’s Richard Fine says the company will continue to expand our influence in the industry and play a positive role in society.”
“With Duni’s scale and our influence, we now have an opportunity and the resources to solve the environmental problems associated with single-use disposable packaging on a global scale,” he says.
The new deal will enable BioPak to rapidly scale, with Duni investing in a 75 per cent share of the newly formed global BioPak business.
Under the new agreement, BioPak will remain a separate company and continue to trade as BioPak. The BioPak founders say they are committed to the long-term growth of the company, with operations in Australia and New Zealand to remain unchanged.
BioPak will continue to expand and grow across Australia and New Zealand to sell compostable and recyclable packaging, and proceed to roll out its waste minimisation initiative – the recently launched its waste minimisation initiative, theBioPak Compost Service.
