Founded in 1955 and based in the Haute-Loire region in France, The Barbier group is a family group. It’s the number one leader on the French market (and fifth in Europe) for flexible packaging with around 700 employees and a 2022 turnover of €373 million of which more than 35% in exports.
We transform 170,000 tonnes of flexible packaging per year on more than 100 extrusion lines across five locations, including 30,000 tonnes as part of our integrated recycling activity entirely dedicated to our own production and 140,000 tonnes into new film.
A circular economy is our main focus!
The Barbier Group is leading the way towards innovative sustainable packaging with the best solutions for our customers. We do this by producing our flexible packaging with a view to continuously reducing our carbon footprint and with the help of an extensive range of sustainable initiatives. These initiatives help increase our social responsibility and contribute to our strategic goal of a fully circular economy.
Therefore, the Barbier Group is proud to present its new PCR film packaging, the main component of RECYPLAST® solutions within our organisation.
The RECYPLAST® solution is now offered with up to 50% PCR material and is available in a multi-layer film while offering the same characteristics and properties as a standard PE film. These products are also listed on the My-Recycled-Content website by Valipac
