Founded in 1925 in Badalona, Giró Group is a family-owned multinational company leader in fruit and vegetable packaging systems, integrating manufacture and marketing of netting, printed and machinery.

Its mission is to provide innovative and sustainable packaging technology and systems, minimising the amount of material used and the carbon footprint

Giró has collaborated with Eurecat in several research and development projects for more sustainable products and in the organisation of training sessions

Eurecat has collaborated with Giró to develop its new 100% cellulosic packaging. Specifically, in the research for suitable cellulosic yarns to replace conventional plastic yarns. Eurecat has also collaborated in the search for the optimum thermoadhesive to close this new packaging.

Another of the joint projects was the design and characterisation of an alternative closure system to metal strapping to achieve 100% recyclable packaging.

On the other hand, Eurecat organised tailor-made training sessions for Giró’s multidisciplinary teams to acquire knowledge about new cellulose materials and new suppliers.
