Fabbri Group is committed to producing safe and cost-effective products, functional to adequate food preservation and committed to invest in innovations for improved and sustainable packaging solutions.

In particular Fabbri Group invests in R&D to:
- produce increasingly thin and light films;
- progressively decrease its dependency on fossil derived resources and raw materials;
- develop packaging machines with reduced energy consumption and designed to reduce the consumption of film.

Producing best-in-class wrapping technology, with a perfect integration of machine and thin films to reduce the consumption of plastics for packaging (i.e. compared with other technologies such as flowpack, thermoforming, top-seal) Fabbri Group follows the concepts outlined in the recent EU Plastics Strategy.

Today Fabbri Group is proud to present BIOBASED STAR FILM, the stretch film derived for 36% from renewable raw materials of plant origin.

BIOBASED STAR FILM is certified "OK Biobased®" by TÜV Austria through the investigation method of the Isotope C14*: a simple, precise and scientific method that identifies exclusively the percentage of raw material of renewable and vegetable origin. Production and raw materials are compliant with all the related Laws at the European and National level, including Food Contact Regulation. Compliance with REACH and CLP ensures that no SVHC are employed.

*The method determines the percentage of Carbon deriving from renewable raw materials on the total organic Carbon (% Carbon Bio-based)

BIOBASED STAR FILM allows the Food Industry and Retail to meet the growing demand of those consumers who are increasingly sensitive to packaging and the environment.

BIOBASED STAR FILM makes a real tangible contribution to the Sustainability balance sheet.
Reducing the use of raw materials from fossil resources, while increasing those derived from renewable ones, and reducing the amount of plastics used are fundamental drivers in the Sustainability objectives of packaging related businesses.

Main characteristics
