IKEA Packaging Innovation Program

How can we reinvent packaging for a more sustainable and better future? At Impact Hub, we are excited to team up once again with IKEA of Sweden, this time to find the innovators and disruptors of the packaging sector. After a successful Food Innovation Program, applications are now open to the IKEA Packaging Innovation Program.

As a curious company with a constant drive to enable people to live a better everyday life within the limits of the planet, they are also invested in making packaging alternatives more sustainable and safer – to both people and our planet. This is why they are looking for innovative packaging disruptors in the following areas:

  • Sustainable alternatives and innovative packaging materials of the future, including upcycled or waste materials from other industries.
  • Accessible solutions for safely transporting goods from suppliers to customers.
