Our history

Our first flexible packaging unit was established in the year 1992, in Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai  with the vision of meeting packaging requirements of the local market in United Arab Emirates (UAE) and to target Middle East markets in the future.

In the year 2008 Positive Packaging Group acquired this unit and established itself as a leading regional player in the Middle East and Africa market. In 2013, a greenfield  state-of-the-art manufacturing plant was built in Ras Al Khaimah - an emirate of UAE to serve its growing customer base. As a part of its expansion plan, Huhtamaki Group, headquartered in Finland, acquired Positive Packaging in February 2015. 

The UAE operations grew its business from 6,000 MT per annum in 2007 to 24,000 MT per annum in 2015 and presently, Huhtamaki UAE is amongst the leading flexible packaging converters in the region servicing the Middle East, African and European markets.
