Biopack is a 100% Belgian company that started in the eighties as the family business Hoornaert Landbouwproducten. "Agricultural products...?!?" I hear you think. Yes, then we sold nice bales of hay and straw. Very natural products, but what was the link with packaging?
One product led us into the world of organic packaging in 1992. Our first packaging material was a paper bag filled with straw. This was used as a buffer material in sectors such as the electronics and pharmaceuticals. Biopack already profiled itself (in 1992!) as the pioneer in ecological, green packaging and as the supplier of 100% natural materials.
Sales volumes were still limited and the functionality of the bio packaging then was not comparable to the products of today. The range therefore grew organically with both green and conventional packaging.
When we launched a web shop in 2002, we opted for the more neutral name ePacking, which encompassed the wide range of both organic and conventional packaging. But environmentally friendly packaging has always been our hobbyhorse.
