No wonder that sales of packaging for this thread already represent 70% of the trades carried out by three major national companies serving this market-Netherlands, C-Pack and Igaratiba.
On the strength of this market, the West Indies, one of the largest manufacturers of packaging, divided its business into two distinct areas: retail and industry.
