March 19, 2019 – Kemira, the chemical industry group, has partnered to create renewable packaging formats with Koepala, a sustainable packaging company providing solutions for on-the-go food.

This partnership is a result of a recent "Food for Thought" innovation challenge, which Koepala won. The challenge looked for new business models and alternatives to single-use plastics in food packaging. As a result, the two companies started to work collaboratively to test their solutions.

Koepala is a Helsinki-based takeout food packaging development company. The end goal of Koepala's innovation is to reduce the use of single-use plastics in food packaging. In Koepala's solution, the packaging is engineered to be flat. It flexes in to a bowl shape to allow ease of use. Kemira's chemistry expertise enables the unique design to take shape.

The companies say they hope the results of the testing will provide further development in sustainable packaging.
