Foxpak Flexibles Ltd, the group that produces digital flexible, sustainable packaging for both food and non-food sectors, has opened a new manufacturing plant in Collon.
Foxpak offers flexible packaging that complies with strict performance criteria required in various products, such as cereals, seafood, baby food, pet food, and confectionery.
The group recently completed a €3 million investment in new equipment and facilities in its Collon facility.
A Positive Step
The plant was officially opened by Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys TD.
“It’s great to see an Irish Company leading the development of sustainable packaging in the food sector,” Humphreys said.
“The investment in this new facility and equipment is encouraging and a very positive step in the transition from traditional plastics to the new era of compostable, recyclable, and paper-based alternative packaging.
“We are very proud to officially open our new manufacturing plant which offers the most modern and innovative print facilities in the market.”
The group, based in Co. Louth, was founded in 2001 and has since led the way in developing digital flexible, compostable packaging.
The company developed short-run digital packaging to complement its existing high volume offering, being able to offer both short run & volume packaging is great for the environment and great for the end user and customer.
