Box Elyte creates social and environmental impact by manufacturing eco-friendly packaging and providing dignified employment to marginalised communities in Romania. 

In its mission to address pressing social issues, Box Elyte – a small to medium-sized enterprise – provides dignified jobs to marginalised groups at its production plant in Fibis, Romania, where it manufactures premium, eco-friendly cardboard boxes for chocolates and pastries.

To support production efforts of their 3,000 types of boxes sold throughout Europe, Box Elyte employs 150 individuals from excluded groups, including migrants and refugees from Ukraine and Asia, as well as local women from low-income backgrounds and ethnic minorities. It also prioritises the purchase of goods and services from local businesses that integrate people with disabilities or from disadvantaged backgrounds into the labour market.

Box Elyte is committed to ensuring that its employees have access to full-time contracts, as well as other basic needs such as accommodation, transportation, language classes, and specialised training courses. The Romania-based enterprise places emphasis on vocational training to reduce turnover among staff and has plans to open an in-house training centre.
