Pinyapel is a locally processed and locally manufactured specialty paper from locally sourced discarded pineapple leaves.
Philippines is the 2nd largest pineapple producer. We have developed a commercially successful business that repurposes pineapple waste. Pinyapel is paper made from discarded pineapple leaves, reinforced and print-ready for secondary packaging applications. The product is locally sourced, locally manufactured and 100% biodegradable. It addresses the growing need for specialty paper and packaging, whilst supporting local pineapple farming communities.
