BioPak CEO, Gary Smith, explains how collaboration forms the blueprint for doing business for the future, in the food packaging business.
By investing in technological innovations, BioPak is bringing environmentally friendly packaging to the world. BioPak has a mission to bring the most sustainable, environmentally friendly packaging to the world. Their innovative designs are made from sustainably sourced and rapidly renewable materials that are certified carbon neutral and compostable. BioPak continually invests in technology and material innovations, achieves best-practice industry standards as a minimum and believes in a business model that balances profit with purpose. They are a proud B Corp for the third year running and in June their Give Back Fund reached $2 million of profits donated to community support and environmental restoration initiatives.
We rely on everyone around us - business owners, customers, governments - to achieve a circular economy world. BioPak (and us) needs everyone. Trials, ambitious sustainable solutions and innovation continue to be the driving forces behind the BioPak brand, but collaboration is the cornerstone to their success. The BioPak brand has been introduced in the United Kingdom, Europe, and Singapore in the last 12 months, with many more countries in the pipeline.
Across the world it is BioPak's collaborations with partners, industry advocates, customers and end-consumers that are driving change. By providing the knowledge and expertise they engage with their trade partners to support the growing demand for their products. BioPak's recent collaboration with supermarket Woolworths and produce packer Hydro Produce created an industry-first: home compostable and recyclable sugarcane pulp produce trays. The public is rewarding BioPak 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 BioPak and their partners are. This is the blueprint for doing business in the future, for the future – bringing more and more partner businesses on the journey and working together with industries to accelerate the transition to a sustainable global circular economy.
