And partnering with Correns means we hit the ground running. Since they are an established name, they help us find and open doors to new, potential Dry Molded Fiber licensees. We look forward to showcasing PulPac and Dry Molded Fiber at Japan Pack, alongside Correns this October.
Miyata-san sees the potential of this partnership; — At Correns, we take climate change and the need for a shift toward sustainability seriously and have installed a separate Dry Molded Fiber promotion team.
