"A package should save more than it costs' - Dr. Ruben Rausing, founder TetraPak.
There is enormous pressure on packaging sustainability and this creates a great opportunity for fiber-based packaging. At RISE, we fully understand the challenge and have broad competencies and infrastructure to support the packaging industry in their journey towards full circularity.
The main driving forces we see now are
1. Increased consumer demand for sustainability and circularity
2. Increased legislation regarding plastic use and recycling
3. Major initiatives and commitments taken by brand owners
4. Major initiatives and commitments taken by the material producers
We support the entire value chain with this tremendous development journey including FMCG brand owners, retailers, converters, material producers, and suppliers. Our main offerings relates to new material development, production processes, converting processers, barrier and surface functionality, characterization, safety and certification.
