Three European companies collaborated - Trific renewable plant fibre-based premium packaging solutions

FutureLab & Partners led the project, bringing together Sweden's Holmen Iggesund, Yangi®, and Germany's Optima Packaging Group. The result is Trific, a portable travel product set, and it stands out as the first dry product in its category made from renewable materials.
The raw materials for Trific are sourced from Holmen Iggesund, which boasts ownership of over 1.3 million hectares of forests in Sweden. Hein van den Reek, the director of Holmen Iggesund, emphasized the pioneering nature of using renewable materials for dry products in travel kits, stating that such an endeavor had not been undertaken before.
The Swedish company Yangi® employs dry mold fiber molding technology to directly transform Holmen Iggesund's natural wood fiber pulp into molded packaging. This technology is particularly environmentally friendly, as it requires no water and consumes very little energy, resulting in a remarkable 75% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions.
Furthermore, the German company Optima Packaging Group utilizes a unique air-tight barrier technology to coat the surface of the formed packaging. Importantly, this coating is fluorine-free and free from pollutants, ensuring an environmentally responsible final product.
Trific was developed and produced with the aim of providing swift alternatives to conventional rigid plastic packaging. In doing so, it accelerates the introduction of new sustainable, high-quality packaging solutions for the health, body, and beauty industries.

This collaborative effort serves as an exemplary model of what can be achieved when partners spanning the entire packaging value chain share a common vision and work together to create more sustainable packaging solutions that seamlessly integrate into existing recycling systems. OtaraPack, since its establishment, has remained committed to connecting upstream and downstream enterprises in the plant fiber molding industry, working collectively to achieve the goal of sustainable future.
