Agpac Ltd in New Zealand, a Tapex Group company, is very proud of its commitment and ongoing support in raising awareness of breast cancer in rural communities through the Sweet Louise Foundation.
The Agpac initiative, in conjunction with one of the global leaders in silage film manufacture, Trioplast, has produced the world’s first pink-coloured silage film in crop packaging that is now seen on many farms across New Zealand. Agpac makes a significant donation each year to Sweet Louise, a charity supporting men and women living with secondary breast cancer.
PROSTATE CANCER FOUNDATION OF NEW ZEALAND
In 2016, Agpac introduced a blue-coloured silage film to help raise awareness of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of New Zealand. Agpac is very proud of the financial support it provides through the success of its blue silage film.
SO THEY CAN
“ubuntu” – “I am because of you”
So They Can works together with communities and their governments in Kenya and Tanzania to educate and empower, so they can break the poverty cycle, realise their own potential and meet their own needs. As a not-for-profit organisation registered in Australia, New Zealand, Kenya, Tanzania and the United States, education is at the core of everything they do.
Tapex Group is a proud supporter and contributor to the “So They Can” charity organisations. In addition to a continuing sponsorship of student Nancy Wangui, Tapex Group has donated over 1,000 educational textbooks to Abadare Ranges Primary School to assist with their syllabus.
Plasback operates Agpac’ s Product Stewardship scheme to recover used farm plastics for recycling.
Through its original bin and liner system, combined with on-farm collection, Plasback has collected over 10,000 tonnes of waste since the scheme’s inception in 2006. As part of its continued commitment to Product Stewardship, Plasback now operates six purpose-built balers that are designed to improve the onward transport logistics from its main centres to the recycling plants. The scheme has also introduced new products made from recycled plastics; Tuffboard, Tuffdeck, and Plaswood.
Plasback was the first product stewardship scheme for agriculture to receive accreditation from the Ministry for the Environment in 2010.
