Star Portfolio

Maximize our
clients’ business
Improve their
environmental impact.

In order to keep these two
objectives together, we continuously
develop our STAR Portfolio.

A complete range of labelling
and packaging products
designed and created to drive
an unmatched transformation
across industries.

Recyclable

To be successfully collected and sorted from the waste and returned to use in its original raw material or as a secondary product.

Support recycling

To successfully improve the sink/float separation process for plastic bottles/containers.

Recycled

Recycled content refers to the portion of materials that have been diverted from the solid waste stream after being used by the consumer and processed in a recyclability stream to produce a new material.

Renewable

Renewable content refers to the usage of bio-based resources that can be naturally replenished, such as trees, sugar cane, corn.

Reduce

Labels solutions that are designed to reduce the overall material usage, and embellishments that are engineered to be produced with lower carbon footprint.

Our STAR Portfolio

Sustainable solutions to rethink
packaging and change the games.
