Ms Nissola said, “Italy is a world leader in composting infrastructure and there is high consumer demand for compostable packaging. TIPA’s technology is primed to respond to this demand, and I am excited to work with Italy’s pioneering brands putting the planet first by transitioning to TIPA’s compostable packaging.” 

Daphna Nissenbaum, CEO and co-founder of TIPA, added, “TIPA is leading commercial developments and compostable solutions on a global scale, and expanding into the Italian market due to the readiness of its composting infrastructure and strategic geographic location.
