A vast array of fully recyclable packaging solutions will be displayed at the leading international trade show for innovative organic products

Montanay, France – Sonoco is pleased to announce its upcoming presence at NatExpo 2022, in partnership with Vegeplast, a French company that specialises in bio-sourced and biodegradable products.

At the event, which takes place in Lyon this autumn (18-20 Sept. – Eurexpo Lyon Hall 4), Sonoco will demonstrate how it is serving the natural and organic markets with its sustainable and innovative packaging products.
