RootsBiopack- Using Renewable Agricultural Waste as Resource

Press Releases

HONG KONG–(BUSINESS WIRE)– RootsBiopack Environmental Solutions Inc. (OTCBB: BPAC), a designer, manufacturer, and supplier of 100% biodegradable and compostable packing products, is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement with Solutionpack Sistemas de Embalagens Ltda (“Solutionpack”) for distribution in Latin America.

The distribution agreement will include the Latin American countries of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.

With their head office in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Solupack is an established distributor of many types of packaging products and machines throughout Latin America. They will use RootsBiopack’s products to launch into the biodegradable and environmentally friendly packaging market.

Brazil is the world’s largest producer of sugarcane, and its related waste by-product called “Bagasse” . Bagasse is the source of RootsBiopack’s products, but has few manufacturers of packaging products using this ingredient. Brazil uses most of this waste as an energy source by burning it.

Mauro Kernkraut, a founder of Solupack, said, “Solupack is delighted to have Biopack as our new strategic partner. Biopack’s fully compostable packages represent an exceptional opportunity for us to distribute in Latin America their innovative products which are very much in tune with our philosophy to the conservation of our global environment with better packages. This partnership will strengthen and expand our presence in the region and contribute to our long-term growth objectives.” Biopack Latin America’s new website should be launched by Solupack within the next few weeks.

Gerald Lau, CEO of Biopack says, “We are extremely happy to have Solupack as our new distributor for Latin America. They have very established operations there, and are making a strong commitment to expanding their market with the sale of our products.” He continues, “Given the fact Brazil is the world’s largest producer of sugarcane and Bagasse, it is surprising that their market for Bagasse packaging is relatively underdeveloped. We believe this shows the exceptional quality of Biopacks products around the world. Latin American countries are also a huge source of all the fresh fruits and vegetables exported all year long on a global basis. The packaging needs for these producers are immense, and we look forward to penetrating this market.”
