Ranpak Holdings (Ranpak), a global leader of environmentally sustainable, paper-based packaging solutions for eCommerce and industrial supply chains, announced the acquisition of Recycold Cool Solutions (Recycold), a manufacturer of sustainable cool packs. Unlike typical cool packs, Recycold Cool Packs are made from a drain-safe, plant-based gel, and their addition expands the diversity of the company’s cold chain packaging solutions.  

“We are thrilled to add Recycold and its Recycold Cool Packs products to our portfolio of sustainable cold chain packaging solutions at Ranpak. Recycold will immediately bolster our position as a highly effective thermal solution provider in the marketplace,” said Omar Asali, chairman and chief executive officer at the comapany. “This acquisition reflects our focus on growth-oriented new products and our shared vision on eco-friendly solutions that express the values with which we operate Ranpak’s business worldwide.”

Asali continued, “We have received great feedback from customers about Recycold Cool Packs. Ranpak will be scaling up Recycold’s business. Recycold products are already sold in 14 European countries, and we look forward to leading further worldwide expansions in the future. It will also be integrating Recycold’s innovative manufacturing operations into the new Ranpak Netherlands facility, expected to open by the end of 2022.”

“Recycold and Ranpak have been collaborating for several years now, and I am so pleased that, under Omar’s leadership, the company can take our business to greater levels,” said 

Ruud Titulaer, co-founder and managing director, Recycold. “Our companies share common values for a more sustainable world, and the combination of Recycold and Ranpak products will provide an unmatched unboxing experience. We are so pleased to be part of the Ranpak family, with the ability to further integrate our offerings for a more streamlined thermal protection solution for our customers and to collaborate even more closely on future product developments.”

Ranpak’s cold chain solution with Recycold eliminates plastic packaging needs

The company has been active in the cold chain field for several years with its WrapPak protector thermal liner. The paper pads trap air and prevent heat conduction, creating an exceptional insulator for cold chain applications. Cooling is needed to keep products cold up to 48 hours, and it recommends using Recycold Cool Packs as the most sustainable option in the market to meet this requirement. Ranpak and Recycold customers will now be able to order the entire solution from a single source and benefit from the following benefits – 

  • Easy integration – Packers position WrapPak paper pads easily in the box before adding the Recycold cool packs, a complete process that is easy to optimize into almost any existing packing operation.
  • Unmatched unboxing experience – The company’s cold chain thermal liners with Recycold Cool Packs offer a superior unboxing experience, minimizing or eliminating the need for plastic packaging for a more sustainable approach. 
  • Cost and sustainability gains – No costly return shipment and handling of conventional cooling systems using these sustainable products. 

 

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
