Tipa develops and manufactures fully compostable flexible packaging for food and non-food products and in doing so provides a solution that avoids environmental damage caused by plastic waste. Tipa is selling a compostable film which mimics the basic features of existing plastics which are made from non-renewable sources such as petroleum. Tipa’s film is made through a combination of materials generated from fermented plant starch such as corn, cassava, sugarcane or sugar beet pulp allowing it to be fully compostable.
