Packnatur® meets Design

We always think nature is great. That’s why we are constantly developing innovative products with its support. Just like our Packnatur® Pick Pack reusable pouches in different versions, from fully woven to a transparent mesh look or our Packnatur® Pop-up bags in various designs.

Production Expansion in Neudau, Austria

The full expansion of the Neudau plant for the production of wood-based net packaging was achieved with the commissioning of the fourth production hall in January 2024. Packnatur® Cellulose Tube Netting is a compostable alternative to plastic that can be used 1:1 on existing packaging machines.

Packnatur® Neudau is expanding

Our machine park at the Packnatur® factory in Neudau is growing and has been expanded to include our latest test machines. Product diversifications are being developed there that will enable even more customers from a wide range of business fields to package their products ecologically in cellulose netting.

The ecological reusable bag for a healthy snack!

Since May the Swiss retailer Coop is offering a reusable snack bag made from wood. After the introduction of the “Multibag” in 2017 for buying loose fruit and vegetables, which is still very popular, Coop is expanding its repertoire of beechwood-based reusable bags from VPZ Verpackungszentrum to include a pretty, reusable snack bag.

Food packaged in nature

Natura Alimentos is our new partner in Mexico and distributes fresh produce to the three biggest supermarket chains in Mexico and to one in the United States.

Out of Garbage

Millions of tons of plastic wind up in the sea each year and cannot be recycled in the usual way. Enormous rubbish patches have appeared in the oceans all over the world. “Out of Garbage” focuses on utilising ocean plastic for fanciful fashion purposes, thereby bringing a subject to the catwalk that makes us conscious of the fact that every individual can contribute with his or her lifestyle, habits and attitudes to combat the insanity of our throw-away culture. Out of plastic and back to nature.

10 years of Packnatur® beechwood netting
at Ja! Natürlich

Exactly 10 years ago the first Packnatur® net packaging made by VPZ VERPACKUNGSZENTRUM from LENZING™ Modal Color beechwood fibres for potatoes, onions, beetroot and black radish for the Ja! Natürlich brand of the REWE Group in Austria entered their stores. Customers for organic produce were enthusiastic and REWE Group generated several hundred likes on social media within a few hours of the market launch. A successful model for green packaging was born.

Eco-Turnaround on the Spanish Packaging Market

Over the course of last year Spain became one of our main export countries. One of the reasons for this is the fact that Spain wants to take up a leading role in reducing plastic packaging in general. Our Spanish partner for our Packnatur® Cellulose Tube Netting, TECNY MEDIA TRADING S.L. in Murcia, reports on the current situation.
