Swedish packaging manufacturer Duni has announced it has acquired a 75% stake in UK-based sustainable packaging producer Biopac.
Biopac produces eco-friendly food and drink packaging from sustainable sources for restaurants, cafés and other businesses in the foodservice sector.
Biopac’s product range includes 100% compostable drink cups made from cornstarch, compostable coffee cups and paper straws.
Duni has stated that Biopac will join its Meal Service division.
Johan Sundelin, CEO of Duni said: “We welcome Biopac into the Duni family. The clear shift in demand towards sustainable products in the restaurant and takeaway segments is a leading factor in this acquisition.
“We look forward to working with the Biopac team.”
Technical director of Biopac Mark Brigden added: “The capacity to customize food and drink packaging to suit customer brands and a clear focus on sustainable products, has resulted in Biopac gaining significant market share throughout the UK.
“The added resources available through this step with Duni will support us in continuing on our growth journey in coming years.”
