An Eco-Friendly Packaging Company Poised For Continued Growth

SECOS Group is ready to leverage its assets and extensive know-how to capture the significant growth in ecologically friendly packaging solutions globally.
Shift to Eco

Additional sales opportunities have arisen from many developed and developing countries given the environmental concerns of plastic.


Strong demand for its bioplastic products including bioplastic film sales, with Q1FY19/20 sales alone already eclipsing all of FY18/19.


New products continue to be researched and developed to capture additional market verticals including protective gowns and diapers.

A Huge Ecological Problem...

Each year approximately 78 million tons of soft plastics is used in packaging. Of this, an incredible 32% of plastic packaging ends up as waste in the ocean and land and 40% of plastic packaging ends up in Council/City land-fill.

...And SECOS Has The Solution.

SECOS have invested significantly in developing the know-how and IP necessary to develop and produce its compostable packaging solutions. SECOS produce, market and sell its product range to over 120 clients globally. SECOS products are 100% compostable as they are created from natural ingredients such as corn.

The Alternatives Are Not Viable

Oxo-Biodegradable plastic are not positive long term environmental solutions as they are not suited for recycling or composting.

SECOS products are both bio-degradable and compostable, making it a truly environmentally friendly packaging solution.
