VPZ
Verpackungszentrum

was founded as a company that sells food packaging in Graz, in Austria, in 1982. From the outset, we have made it our mission to play an active role in shaping our future. We channel our creativity into new packaging concepts that contribute towards a better environment. As a result, we are market leaders in the development and sale of biogenic packaging.

Why make things more complicated?

New product development is part and parcel of our success. We turn seaweed into foam, plants into film and beechwood into netting – innovative concepts that result from our quest for high-quality, environmentally friendly solutions. A number of these innovative solutions have already made it onto the market.
