Printhorn Apithanasriwong, President of Starflex, said, “Our first goal for this exciting new step will be to construct a new factory to produce and supply flexible packaging mainly for food. With more than 18 years of experience and a solid history of working together with Thai Union, we believe that we can work to support them in their sustainability and packaging goals. This partnership will foster research and development of innovation and technology, leading to increased competitiveness and value-added services.”

Thiraphong Chansiri, President & CEO of Thai Union, said, “Thai Union is committed to sustainability, which is a key pillar of our global business. Mitigating the effects of our packaging on the environment and innovating in our design and production not only addresses key sustainability challenges but also provides important business benefits.

This new joint venture will help us reach that goal and we are looking forward to working closely with Starflex.”
