EU availability

We’re thrilled to confirm that Notpla’s sustainable packaging is making waves in Europe, scaling up the availability of our seaweed-based coated board and launching into the Benelux region.

Notpla’s next level of scale is unlocked

This milestone in our journey required an experienced partner, so it’s a pleasure to have formed this strategic partnership with specialists in converting packaging materials for foodservice - Conpax. Their committed team, position in the market and advanced facilities will provide crucial support in our next growth stage. By working together, we will further innovate the industry and continue our journey to make packaging that disappears.

“We are very pleased with the cooperation between Notpla and Conpax because it ensures the availability of unique seaweed coated folding carton products in the Benelux. From our own facilities in the Netherlands we will design, manufacture and supply new sustainable single-use products made from Notpla coated board."
- Roy Suiskens, Director of Conpax

Inside Conpax's expansive European packaging converting facility

Offering a range of advantages over traditional packaging materials, our seaweed-coated board is a preferred choice for environmentally conscious businesses. As one of the planet’s most sustainable crops, seaweed does not require arable land, actively sequesters carbon dioxide from the ocean, and grows at an astonishing rate, making it one of the most renewable resources available.

By using Notpla’s award-winning, natural material technology, foodservice businesses can respond to growing consumer demand to be more transparent in what they’re doing to be sustainable. Of course, this doesn’t come at the cost of packaging’s performance; our coated board maintains the same strength, grease-resistance and durability of synthetic materials, creating a truly drop-in, hassle-free solution.

This is a great win for the planet, for businesses and consumers all wishing to make sustainable choices without sacrificing the convenience that we’re accustomed to.

Interested customers in the Benelux region should reach out to Conpax to request samples and discover Notpla's solution to their sustainable food-to-go packaging needs.

Every year, millions of tonnes of plastic waste contaminate our oceans, rivers, lakes, and ecosystems, jeopardizing marine life and disrupting delicate ecological balances. The statistics are alarming – projections indicate that plastic pollution could more than double by 2030 if decisive action isn't taken now to reduce plastic use and improve waste management practices globally.
