BioBag (formerly known as PolarGruppen) was established in 1959, producing a variety of polyethylene bags, sacks, and films. The product line, BioBag, based on renewable raw materials was introduced in 1993. In 1997, the new owners defined a clear strategy: To become the world’s leading company within bioplastics production, sales and marketing. Polyethylene production was completely phased out in 2003. BioBag then focused solely on compostable and biodegradable products.

BioBag continues to define our strategy by concentrating our efforts towards industries within waste management, retail, HORECA, industrial applications and agriculture.
