Do you have access to your own raw materials?

Imagine a system where you could manufacture your products and/or packaging from the very same materials you sold into the market. This is what Cascades is striving to create; an infrastructure that allows for optimal resource recovery and the ability to turn those resources back into products and packaging. We have expertise in many aspects of the supply chain including sustainable packaging design and the collection infrastructure needed to support a products positive end of life. Let us use our expertise to help you design truly circular packaging solutions.
