Now it’s offi­cial: our pionee­ring work in the pro­ces­sing of natu­ral fibres has been com­pre­hen­si­ve­ly hono­u­red with inter­na­tio­nal patents.

When Land­pack was foun­ded in 2013 by Dr. Tho­mas and Patri­cia Mai­er-Eschenlohr, the glo­bal sta­tus quo in ref­ri­gera­ted ship­ping was the clas­sic Sty­ro­foam box. The public launch of the Land­box Straw in 2015 and the nume­rous inno­va­ti­on awards that fol­lo­wed were a wake-up call to the ent­i­re indus­try and its customers.

Sin­ce then, a new envi­ron­men­tal awa­reness has deve­lo­ped in the pack­a­ging indus­try. New, more eco­lo­gi­cal mate­ri­als are being expe­ri­men­ted with and plastic and paper are incre­a­singly being ques­tio­ned as sup­po­sed best prac­ti­ce materials.

In the future, the focus will incre­a­singly be on resi­du­al mate­ri­als in order to enab­le a true cas­ca­de use and sus­tainab­le cir­cu­lar eco­no­my. Our tech­no­lo­gies, pro­ducts and pro­duc­tion pro­ces­ses for pro­ces­sing pure natu­ral fibers into mol­d­ed parts without any addi­ti­ves are com­pre­hen­si­ve­ly pro­tec­ted by Euro­pean and Ame­ri­can patents and our pionee­ring work in the field of natu­ral pack­a­ging is reco­gni­zed accordingly.

This puts us among the 6% of Euro­pean green star­tups that have paten­ted technology.*
