Founded over thirty years ago, UNI Packaging is a family company that produces and processes flexible packaging solutions for the food industry. Its strong and aggressive investment policy allowed it to develop its product range and strengthen its position in more than 15 countries across Europe and the emerging markets.

UNI Packaging called upon the services of ChetWode in February 2015, to assist in obtaining the financing required to support its development strategy.  A sale & leaseback funding for 3,77M€ was put in place, allowing UNI Packaging to develop its activities in Europe, namely through new acquisitions, and strengthen its position in the packaging marketplace.
