Come join us for refreshments and food, and the opportunity to network with other Business owners and hear from the 2017 Winner - Ecoware.
Ecoware came to life almost a decade ago when founders James Calver and Alex Magaraggia realised they wanted a business that had social impact and made a measurable difference for future generations. The fast-approaching plastic pollution crisis was something they couldn’t ignore, so Ecoware was born out of a passion to build a circular economy in New Zealand. To help achieve this, the company designs a range of plant-based and compostable food packaging that uses resources sustainably and responsibly, giving environmental, social and economic concerns equal consideration. Their concept is simple: work with nature, not against it.
Ecoware is New Zealand's only carbon neutral certified packaging company, making regular appearances on the Deloitte Fast 50 index with triple figure growth, this small kiwi company is catching attention locally and globally. Starting in New Zealand they now export to growing international market, and the passion and drive by the founders James & Alex (Finalists in the EY Entrepreneurs of the Year Award 2018) to take the business from start up to medium enterprise is reflected in the recent appointment of their new General Manager Grant Robinson. All this in less than 10 years from conception. This is a business to watch.
