Just Published: New Case study “Making Laminating Film and Packaging Foils Fit for a Sustainable Future”


European IP Helpdesk team just published a brand-new case study showcasing the journey of LAM’ON, a Bulgarian start-up company developing bio-based and industrially compostable laminating films and flexible packaging foils. Their products are sustainable alternatives to petroleum-based plastic solutions, still widely used in printing and packaging. After five years of Research & Development (R&D) supported by European funding through the prestigious European Innovation Council (EIC) Accelerator Grant, the company established its own manufacturing facility in Sofia, Bulgaria, in 2023. Currently, they have nine employees, with the plan to expand the team to 15 by the end of the year.

This case study demonstrates how two young women combined their efforts to transform an innovative idea into a progressive and successful start-up. It also highlights their effective management of intellectual property challenges throughout the journey.
