Our company was founded in the eighties as the family business ‘Hoornaert Landbouwproducten’ (agricultural products), specialized in hay and straw. In 1992, a well-considered switch was made to the packaging sector.
Biopack started as a pioneer in eco-friendly packaging! The first product was a paper bag filled with straw. This was used as buffer material in sectors such as the electronics and pharmaceuticals sectors. At that time (in 1992!), Biopack already profiled itself as the pioneer in green packaging and as the company offering 100% natural materials.
The sales volumes were still limited & the functionality of the biological packaging at that time could not be compared with the products of today. Therefore, the range was expanded with both green and conventional packaging. When we launched our webshop in 2002, we chose the name ePacking, which includes the broad biological as well as the conventional range.
