Mainetti Expands Into Turkey to Provide Sustainable Packaging Solutions to Region

UK retail brands such as M&S and Superdry partner with Mainetti to support sustainability goals

August 05, 2021 – Mainetti announced a new strategic expansion of their flexible packaging business in Turkey, providing retailers with a range of innovative products and solutions in the “Near East”. Mainetti realized a demand for sustainable packaging in the region, and has expanded its capacity to meet the needs of its retail brand partners, such as M&S and Superdry. The move adds to Mainetti’s existing hanger factory.

Due to its strategic location in the Middle East, and close to leading retailers in Europe, Turkey has seen a demand by regional and international brands to offer sustainable packaging solutions to customers.

Michelle Boon, Global General Manager, Flexible Packaging, Mainetti commented: “In January 2021, we expanded our flexible packaging production business to a 1,400 square meter standalone factory. Despite a tough year for the retail, we have more than doubled our capacity. The move highlights the demand in the region for sustainable and ‘circular’ solutions by leading manufacturers and retailers in the fashion industry.”

Trevor Hatchett, Technical Manager, Marks and Spencer added: “It is good to see Mainetti expanding and investing in the Turkish region as it is a fundamental element to the supply chain. We look forward to the support this expansion will provide Marks and Spencer.”

As part of the company’s commitment to sustainable solution development, Mainetti launched Mainetti Polyloop in the UK and European market, providing customers with a closed-loop recycling system for clear polyethylene film. It is one of the most sustainable packaging programs in the fashion industry and is utilized by brands such as Superdry and Nutmeg at Morrisons to help reach their ambitious recycling goals.

Mainetti is a proud Member of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and has recently committed to being Carbon Neutral in its operations going forward.
