Ilip is a member of the ILPA Group, a European leader in the processing and transformation of plastic raw materials.
We develop, and make available to large-scale retailers, modern food service and fresh produce processors, innovative and sustainable packaging solutions, in thermoformed plastic and compostable materials.
Ilip’s Three Main Commitments
REDUCE packaging weight (DOWNGAUGING) without compromising the safety and shelf life of the packaged products. Furthermore, ILIP promotes more sustainable and innovative packaging systems and invest in the development of active packaging aimed to reduce food waste & losses
The vertical integration of r-PET: A closed loop that opens up to the environment.
RECYCLING has become economically and environmentally sustainable. ILIP is part of I.L.P.A. Group vertical integration of the r-PET supply chain: a CLOSED LOOP SYSTEM from post consumer water bottles to a new packaging designed to protect fresh food. ILPA is an excellent example of circular economy, the only group at European level to have achieved the vertical integration of the r-PET cycle. Ilip is responsible for the last step in this process: thermoforming the film coils to produce food packaging in r-PET with an average recycled material content of 80% and the possibility to make packaging entirely made of r-PET.
3. Renewable resources
RENEWABLE RESOURCES: bioplastics, plastics from plants, are renewable and compostable. ILIP is the only European manufacturer with complete ranges of disposable tableware, foodservice packaging and fresh produce packaging made with PLA, a vegetable-based plastic material that meets the ideal requirements for the world of food: it provides protection and can be renewed on a 100% basis.
