VPZ Verpackungszentrum GmbH

Compostable Packnatur® cellulose nets made from Lenzing Modal® – a by-product of forest thinning – have replaced plastic nets for organic fruit and vegetables in all leading Austrian supermarkets. This internationally awarded innovation has been developed by VPZ in cooperation with the Lenzing AG, Borckenstein GmbH and EOM Erzeugerorganisation Marchfeldgemüse and is now poised to conquer the global market. The new Packnatur® Organic Wineglass Labels complement this revolutionary net packaging. The Organic Wineglass Labels, jointly developed by VPZ, IM Polymer and Lenzing Plastics, are made from a new organic compound of cellulose paper and organic film using 100% renewable, biodegradable raw materials. The Packnatur® Organic Wineglass Labels are ready for market launch, following successful tests in Austria,
