IMA Group and Goglio, leading Italian multinationals in the packaging solutions sector, have entered a strategic partnership aimed at converging competences and know-how for the supply of processing and packaging solutions for the coffee industry.
The partnership involves a strong and mutual focus on the research and development of new generation packaging materials.
“We need strong partnerships if we want to strengthen our presence on the market. By joining our efforts, we are offering added value not only for customers but also for partners, and suppliers” says Klaus Peters, IMA Food Sector director, and Davide Jarach, Strategic Development Officer Goglio Group.
In recent years, the two companies have frequently combined their strengths to meet the requirements of the world’s leading coffee roasters. By integrating their respective skills, they can offer the best technology worldwide for coffee packaging lines, from beans reception to end of line equipment matching all the most demanding process, packaging and service requirements.
“IMA is glad to offer OpenLab support, the Group’s network of technological laboratories and testing area, to accelerate on this priority mission. With IMA Open Lab, we research, test and develop alternative processes and materials together with our partners and suppliers encouraging sustainable, compostable or biodegradable packaging solutions,” says Peters.
At the core of this partnership is the common quest for sustainability, a priority mission shared by IMA and Goglio, and the mutual need to research and develop sustainable materials that can be handled on their packaging solutions.
“Our commitment to research and development is a key element for Goglio, which for years has been at the forefront of pioneering new packaging technologies and sustainable materials that enable greater efficiency and lower environmental impact,” says Jarach.
