Where are we?

Firstpack's worldwide headquarters are based in Paris France, where we have a national network of offices and warehouses. We now have subsidiaries in the US, in the UK, in Italy, in Germany, in Belgium and the Netherlands and in Spain. We also have sole distributor-agreements with companies in many other countries around the world.

Packnwood UK was launched in May 2011. Our warehouse is based near Birmingham from where we distribute our products all over the UK. We recently opened a sales office and a new central London showroom at the following address: Office 307, 1 Quality Court, Off Chancery Lane, WC2A 1HR, London.

The 'green' team -  Eco-friendly is our middle name.

All Packnwood products follow the innovative First Pack theme of the ecolomique, a blend of the French words for ecology and economy that First Pack coined in 1990. The idea is simple: we create value using natural, organic and recyclable materials. Our smooth and elegant finished products make the food you serve more enticing, all while preserving the environment.

Firstpack has stayed at the forefront of innovation by developing a product range made from sustainable materials. We offer the largest range of eco-friendly packaging products on the market today and for which we have developed 6 distinctive and unique segments based on the materials used:

  • pulpware range
  • cornstarch range
  • wooden ranges   'samurai' 'canada'  'saga'  'scandinavia' ...
  • bamboo range 'zebra'
  • palm leaf range 'areca'
  • paper/card range  'kray'
