Plépah gives farmers and local communities a sustainable income by selling their biodegradable packages made from agricultural waste
The use of plastic food packaging is rapidly increasing in Indonesia. During the pandemic, home deliveries have gone up and so has the amount of plastic packages that end up as non-recyclable waste in the environment. Plépah tackles this problem while at the same time supporting farmers and local communities. By selling their biodegradable packages made from agricultural materials it gives them a sustainable income.
Being part of the accelerator is a dream come true. We admire the values, vision and mission that IKEA holds. We will gain a lot of knowledge in the programme that will contribute to our mission to alleviate the environmental burden and strengthen the socioeconomic resilience of farmers and communities in Indonesia.
