February 14th 2024


AINIA y REDIT Ventures, a specialized investment vehicle promoted by the eleven technological institutes of REDIT (Network of Technological Institutes of Valencia), create the new technology-based company FIBTRAY Solutions.

The company will design and manufacture laminated cardboard packaging that allow their hermetic closure by heat sealing, suitable for the food packagings in modified atmospheres. This technological solution, developed by AINIA, is protected by an international patent of the technological center.

It is a alternative to plastic packaging, which allows improving the properties of similar solutions based on cellulosic consumables, as well as their integration into pre-existing production lines at a competitive price. FIBTRAY is a solution in line with trends in the packaging market, an area marked by European legislation on the minimization of single-use plastic, as well as the search for recyclability of materials and the growing demand for sustainable packaging.

For the CEO of AINIA, Christina Del Campo: “the development of FIBTRAY Solutions allows us to bring our patented technology to the market, covering the needs of the packaged food industrial sector, which requires new alternative packaging that is more sustainable than plastic, which guarantees the maintenance of quality and food safety levels. , as well as the shelf life of food, without entailing an additional cost for consumers.”

For its part, Gonzalo Belenguer, Counselor of REDIT Ventures states that “The launch of FIBTRAY Solutions, by our investment vehicle, created with own funds from the Network of Technological Institutes, in collaboration with AINIA, is one more example of our real commitment to the generation of technology-based companies with high growth potential in the Valencian Community. In short, this is the second spin off that we created, in just one year, and which will contribute to creating jobs with high added value".
