More 65 years of innovative packaging solutions
Infia is a leading company in the fresh fruit and vegetable packaging sector around the world. A pioneer in the industry when it comes to innovation of goods and services, its history dates from the late 1940s, in the heart of Romagna, where the business was developed. From the very beginning, its production has been focused on the creation of innovative packaging that could represent an effective and winning solution to emerging requirements in packaging, protection and enhancement of fruit and vegetable produce.
Thanks to an organised sales network on all five continents and consolidated partnerships worldwide, today Infia is the leading fruit and vegetable plastic packaging producer in Europe and one of the leading producers in this sector worldwide.
The company has over 400 employees working at two factories. The first one, with its 135,000 square meters, is situated in Bertinoro (Forlì-Cesena), where the company’s headquarters are based. The second one is situated in Valencia, Spain. In addition, the group has two commercial branches in the United Kingdom and on the Iberian Peninsula.
Infia has recently made another important breakthrough towards innovation and growth. The company has just finalized the acquisition of the former “Glasspack” premises and, in doing so, the company’s RPET and PET production site will expand to more than 70.000 sq.m of covered area.
In over 65 years of history, Infia has always distinguished itself around the world for its continuous push towards innovation, which led it to become one of the first companies to invest in new materials such as PET. This philosophy stands behind the introduction of the track-and-trace program for its punnets. Its revolutionary Kit line has completed a range of articles that is one of the most modern, complete and diversified within the market sector. Respect for the environment and reduction of food waste are founding values of the company’s mission: the new patented side ventilation system utilised in its punnets allows produce to keep fresh longer and reduces wastes, while the internal decontamination process of RPET considerably limits impact in terms of CO2 emissions.
The company's success is based on the fundamental role played by its human resources. These are the people who through their enthusiasm, expertise and strong vocation for customer satisfaction have enabled Infia to become the first group around the world to contact when looking for fresh fruit and vegetable packaging.
Founded in 1983 by the name of Netpak for marketing food packaging items, in 1990 the company was acquired by Italian company Infia S.r.l., a European leader in the production of plastic packaging for fresh fruit and vegetables.
In late 1992 the main factory in Spain was opened in Puzol, a district of Valencia, with 5,000 square meters of floor space.
In early 2004, Infia was acquired by the multinational Linpac Packaging, forming a part of two companies the group owns in Pravia, Spain.
Earlier in mid-2001, Infia Plastics was incorporated as the group's packaging production company, using a part of Infia's Spanish facilities at Puteoli. Later, in 2006 the storage facilities were expanded by adding 8,000 square meters of new premises.
At present Infia Ibérica S.L. is the company to contact in the fruit and vegetable plastic packaging sector when it comes to advice, quality, price and services.
