Serving and preserving freshness is our passion.

We develop food packaging solutions in thermoformed plastic and bioplastic, that protect and add value to our customers’ products and improve the consumer experience.

We do it with the passion of our land, Emilia Romagna, which defines our relationships with partners, customers and suppliers. A business card that characterises the way we are and the way we work all around the world.

A “high level” passion that joins forces with innovation and professional competence in an ongoing search for excellence. We believe there is more to innovation than just developing quality products that are safe and easy to use: it also means devising eco-friendly solutions that minimise food waste, raw material consumption and adverse effects on the environment.

Taking care of food. Taking care of the future.

In Emilia Romagna, in Italy and in the world we want to be a paragon of excellence in food packaging.

Passion for packaging is in our history and our future. A fresh passion for over half a century that renews itself every year and drives our efforts to make innovative products, of ever higher quality, while continuosly reducing food waste and raw material consumption.

Taking good care of our customers and their products, our land and our community, is the best way to ensure a solid future to our company and the future generations of our great Ilip family.
