Our long experience makes us the leading specialists in everything relating to packaging. Our professional approach over the years, adapting to changes in the sector along the way, confirms us as a benchmark brand in the market. Our goal is to continue making progress, alongside our clients, towards sustainability in packaging.

These solutions are based on Eco-design - we have created a range of biodegradable and compostable products, always working to make them more environmentally friendly, recyclable and reusable.

*Our biodegradable and compostable bags are made using maize starch and biodegradable polyester. They have the same properties as any polyethylene bag, but are totally environmentally friendly, breaking down to their composite nutrients in composting conditions. El Carmen guarantees that all the components used in their production bear the OK Compost Certificate.

We design clean packaging
