Ecopack is the result of a long family journey, and the starting point of future developments in the search for the finest solutions in the food packaging sector.
A path spanning three generations:
Between WWI and WWII, Salvatore Ferri takes the first steps in building an 80-year family history. He founds the company as S. Ferri & C. S.a.s.
The attitude towards invention and problem-solving was clear from the start: to make up for the shortage of waffle ice cream cones during the War, the company patents a paper ice cream cup.
Luigi Ferri, the son of Salvatore, enters the company, further strengthening its familiar identity. Thanks to his intuitions, Ecopack would become a international company.
The first big challenges:
The increase in consumption during the economic boom and Luigi’s flair for finding industrial solutions stimulate demand by important clients in the business.
He creates a machine capable of mass producing millions of paper doilies.
The production of panettone moulds for large Italian customers begins.
Today it is called takeout, back then it was called Conchiglia (shell). A patent translated into 4 languages and well ahead of its time.
The business’ capability and technical know-how come to a turning point: the realisation of a machine able to industrially produce the most famous paper cups in the world.
The modern age begins:
Luigi’s children, Annalisa and Francesco Ferri join the business. The company name becomes Ecopack, as it is known today.
The demand to bring back a handmade aesthetic pairs well with the demand for more sustainable materials. This is how the pie mould was born: an innovative paper baking mould to replace aluminum ones.
The big Ecopack family crosses borders: along with the historical Italian headquarters, the company opens production plants in Brazil, Canada, India, Russia, and Tunisia.
The search for low-carbon footprint solutions is growingly necessary. The company launches its first-ever compostable products and prepares to take on new challenges.
The strength of Ecopack’s roots generates the enthusiasm and determination to turn challenges into tangible designs.
Established in 1939 and headquartered in Turin, Ecopack specializes in the production of baking molds and packaging for the global confectionery industry.
