Why

TIPA is a developer and producer of fully compostable flexible packaging solutions that break down into compost just like an orange peel. TIPA’s breakthrough packaging has the same end-of-life as organic matter while offering consumers and brands the durability, transparency and shelf life they have come to expect from conventional plastics. Inspired by nature, TIPA® fully compostable solutions are displacing conventional flexible plastic such that single-use packaging will no longer linger in landfills for hundreds of years, but will biodegrade within months in a sustainable end-of-life process.
