The Packaging Industry in Israel

  • The Packaging Industry in Israel is expanding, and the need to go after ‘green’ packaging materials is on demand. This is to reduce plastic pollution to the environment.
  • Entrepreneurs Joseph Siani and Lior Itai came together and combined their long-term experience in packaging and hi-tech industries. The two aim to reduce the amount of air population caused by plastic packaging materials.
  • They came up with a sugarcane pulp-based packaging product called bagasse. The material is 100% natural and does not emit toxic substances into the environment.
  • This boosting economy in Israel will continue to push higher the demand for industrial printers, printing equipment, printing parts, and printing consumables such as inks and cleaning solutions.

  2. High Product Cost - Given the domestic competition in Israel, printers and the continuous ink supply are more expensive to buy domestically than on the world market.
