TIPA, an Israeli startup co-founded in 2010 by Daphna Nissenbaum, develops and produces fully compostable flexible packaging using breakthrough technology. TIPA offers viable solutions for the replacement of conventional flexible plastic. Their products cover a wide array of applications from fresh produce to apparel, and ensure requirements are met in terms of durability, transparency and print.

TIPA is a company tackling the plastic issue head-on, with a preventative solution to end conventional flexible plastic accumulation and pollution.
