Biobased Packaging

Retail packaging

Biobased Packaging Innovations is 1 of the initiatives of Green Serendipity in collaboration with the Ministry of Economic Affairs and launched to accelerate bio-based innovations in the retail packaging market. We do this by informing retailers, brand owners and entrepreneurs on bio-based materials and their possibilities, advising them by making the right sustainable choices (checking the entire chain) and connecting them to bioplastics producers (or producers of recycled materials), compounders, knowledge institutes etc.
