Following its recent European expansion, TIPA is beginning local production in the US in partnership with PPC Flexible Packaging and Clearview Packaging.

With main US facilities in Illinois and Utah, PPC Flexible Packaging will add TIPA’s compostable laminates to its manufacturing portfolio to produce pouches for packaging baked goods, dry food, supplements, vitamins and more.

New York-based Clearview Packaging will use TIPA’s compostable films to produce packaging applications such as open, wicketed, resealable and zipper bags and mailers for fashion garments and food products.

With more than 300 million metric tons of flexible packaging produced yearly, TIPA aims to replace flexible packaging with compostable alternatives that mimic the positive properties of conventional plastic packaging such as durability, printability and transparency but with a fully sustainable end-of-use. When placed in a home or industrial composter, the packaging is said to turn into nutrient-rich soil within a few months.

Earlier this year, TIPA acquired compostable packaging company Bio4Pack and announced a partnership with flexible packaging company Ispak. The company expects to partner with additional manufacturers in the next few months.

TIPA CEO Daphna Nissenbaum commented: “Our partnerships with PPC and Clearview represent an important milestone in the fight against plastic pollution and we admire the commitment of both companies to sustainable manufacturing processes.”

Nissenbaum previously told Packaging Gateway that “There is extremely strong consumer support for flexible plastic alternatives like compostable packaging.”
