Dear Customers, Dear Colleagues,
Welcome to Ti News, the Environmental Issue. Why this focus and why now? Daily, specialists
warn of the absolute necessity to change consumption habits to reduce damage to the
earth. Images of plastic-contaminated oceans reach our homes as well as yours. Concerns
with an overall food waste of 30% have never been so acute, especially considering world
population growth.
Most of our customers—and theirs—understand that the way things have been done in the
past must change. Companies are under pressure, both internally and externally, to adopt
the principles of the circular economy: to respect the world’s finite resources and to create
and use renewable options.
At Taghleef, we are committed to doing our part. Not only are we concentrating our activities on 100% recyclable
polyolefin resins, but we have also significantly stepped up investments to increase our technological contribution
for each gram of raw material. In addition, over the last 10 years, we have developed unmatched experience with
plant-based resins.
With EXTENDO
®
, a brand that is synonymous with highly advanced BOPP barrier films, Ti has risen to the double
challenge of integrating efficient mineral oil, gas, oxygen and water vapor barriers while preserving aromas and
keeping food fresh.
With NATIVIA
®
, a sustainable and industrially compostable packaging solution made from renewable rawmaterials,
we address resource depletion and support the shift away from the dependency on fossil resources.
With SHAPE360
floatable shrink films, reduced label weight means improved quality and yield of PET recycling,
making both the bottle and label materials recoverable and recyclable.
Read more about these product solutions and other environmental topics in this edition’s new section, “Strategies
for Sustainability.”
We invite you to join us on this journey for a better future and ask for your active involvement to effect change.
Across all regions, we have the experience, the tools and the deployment specialists in the field who can help
you engineer your next solution. But we need to work closely together, teaming up on joint developments to steer
the flexible packaging industry towards more sustainable solutions. Please get in touch with us, and let’s start
the conversation. You will find us… everywhere!
