Envases take away ecologicos
Unfortunately, our country does not have a production plant to create these biodegradable containers. However, Qapac Runa is an innovative Peruvian company dedicated to importing them from Asia and, although it is a new product in our country, it already has more than 200 customers who join this new initiative to care for the environment.
«The difference is in terms of price, obviously we are lowering costs as much as possible. For example, if a taper in tecnopor costs 0.35 cents, ours is between 0.70 and 0.80 cents. It is an accessible price and costs less than a chocolate or a cookie,» explains Rayda Romero, founder of Qapac Runa.
