Together for a Better Future

BioPak CEO, Gary Smith, explains how collaboration forms the blueprint for doing business in the future, for the future, in the food packaging business.

At BioPak, we have a mission to bring the most sustainable, environmentally friendly packaging to the world. Our innovative designs are made from sustainably sourced and rapidly renewable materials that are certified carbon neutral and compostable. 

We continually invest in technology and material innovations, achieve best-practice industry standards as a minimum, and we believe in a business model that balances profit with purpose – we are a proud B Corp for the third year running and in June our Give Back Fund reached the $2 million dollar mark of profits donated to community support and environmental restoration initiatives. 

But to achieve our mission, we need only one more thing – everyone! 

Trials, ambitious sustainable solutions and innovation continue to be the driving forces behind our brand, but we see collaboration as the cornerstone to our success. We have introduced the BioPak brand in the United Kingdom, Europe and Singapore in the last 12 months, with many more countries in the pipeline. 

Across the world we see that it is our collaborations with our partners, industry advocates, customers and end-consumers that are really driving change. By providing the knowledge and expertise we engage with our trade partners to support the growing demand for our product. 

Our recent collaboration with supermarket Woolworths and produce packer Hydro Produce created an industry-first: home compostable and recyclable sugarcane pulp produce trays. 

As a team, we joined together to drive the adoption of sustainable materials in this new sector, and the public is rewarding us for that move because they too are aware of the challenges the world is facing. The public are willing and motivated to support sustainable alternatives, just as we and our partners are. 

This is the blueprint for doing business in the future, for the future – bringing more and more partner businesses on the journey with us and working together with industries to accelerate the transition to a sustainable global circular economy.

In our Sustainability Report 19/20, we have measured ourselves against targets to keep us on track to continue our goal to drive change for generations to come.
