TIPA was founded to create viable compostable, flexible packaging solutions.
Packaging should behave just like an orange peel, so nature won’t even notice we’re here.
The segments of an orange are packed by nature in a protective multilayer peel.
When discarded, the orange peel decomposes and leaves no toxic residue; the compost left behind can be used as fertilizer for plant growth. 100% of the orange peel returns to nature.
TIPA was founded in 2010 by Daphna Nissenbaum and Tal Neuman to address the plastic waste challenge.
TIPA’s vision is for flexible packaging to have the same end-of-life as organic matter, while still offering consumers and brands the durability, transparency and shelf life they have come to expect from conventional plastics.
Yet compostable packaging can only succeed if it meets the same performance specifications as conventional plastic packaging. Compostable packaging should also be able to seamlessly fit into today’s methodology of logistics and manufacturing practices.
