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.

Among our customers we count international chains as well as local organic farmers and retailers.

We provide competent advice to individuals and companies who want to use their packagings as a distinctive advertising medium or are looking for special sizes and formats.


When it comes to large-scale projects we get particularly imaginative. Our Research & Development network helps us to make ideas marketable.
