Sustainable packaging expertise.
Sustainable packaging made in Germany
Plant Pack GmbH is a sister company of Nordgetreide GmbH & Co. KG. The northern German company with a market presence across Europe specialises in the gentle processing of grain into high-quality food products.
When it comes to producing Plant Pack, this close relationship brings about important synergies: maize grits, the raw material from which Plant Pack is made, is generated in large quantities as a residue when Nordgetreide processes corn. It is not suitable for food production an can then be utilised to manufacture sustainable packaging.
The Georg August University in Göttingen developed the production process for the maize grits-based packaging; it is based on extensive and patented research work. Plant Pack GmbH optimised the process jointly with the scientists and drove the material towards market introduction. The company holds the exclusive rights to use this patent in the packaging application area for the European market.
