Faca, a packaging manufacturer headquartered in Barcelona, Spain, has introduced a new line of products – jars and bottles – made from 100% plant-based raw material.
The company, which celebrated its 50th anniversary last year, says the new products illustrate the flexibility with which Faca is responding to the transition towards greater sustainability in the cosmetics packaging industry, while continuing to hold a leading position in the high-end and luxury sector of this industry.
As illustrated by the newly launched jars, product development is a major focus at Faca. The company invests heavily in R+ D +I , and over the years, has built up a portfolio comprising over 300 active patents.
In addition, the company has invested in state-of-the-art machinery for more sustainable and lower consumption, both in injection with the acquisition of heavy-duty machinery to allow multi-cavity molds, as in decoration and assembly, with cutting edge machinery for quality control by using ultra-high-speed artificial vision cameras.
Faca's newest offerings, made from polyethylene derived from sugarcane, help its customers to meet their own environmental goals and at the same time to satisfy end consumers’ demands for more sustainable packaging. All Faca’s packaging is made in Europe. The company produces jars and bottles in sizes ranging from 7ml to 250ml ( with and without internal beaker).
Since 2019, its three production plants, complete with cleanroom facilities and office areas have all been powered by 100% renewable energy, thus minimising its C02 footprint.
