A message from our CEO
Committed to a forward-looking approach, Groupement Micropap is continually improving its coated paper to ensure it is perfectly adapted to each packaged product. This website reflects our mission and the many possibilities offered by our brands: unique packaging solutions perfectly aligned with citizens’ needs, today and in the future.
By drawing on the traditional know-how and high-performance R&D of each of the group’s members, we are able to constantly develop innovations in response to changes in the market and legislation, as well as the expectations of manufacturers, artisans and consumers.
Innovating to improve our service
Our coated paper, the result of extensive expertise, has proven its effectiveness. At Groupement MICROPAP, we continue to develop the materials and techniques we use in order to improve its properties.
As the masters of this know-how, our industrial converting companies offer customised formats, in line with the specific requirements of each customer.
Innovating to overcome sustainable development challenges
As early as 1963, Micropap® received the Packaging Oscar from the French Packaging Institute (IFEC).
In 2007, Groupement MICROPAP set itself apart by launching Végépap® , the first paper coated with a vegetable wax derived from renewable sources.
In 2012, the group obtained the OK Compost label for its two ranges, Micropap® and Végépap® .
That same year, Végépap® was awarded the Packaging Oscar in the Flexible Packaging category. More innovations are currently being developed in the group members’ R&D centres: new bio-based coating materials, new applications, etc.
The guarantee of French manufacturing quality
Our Micropap® and Végépap® paper ranges have developed a reputation for high quality among professionals, manufacturers and artisans. This is the result of an ongoing requirement of the group’s manufacturers, who wanted processing to be 100% under French control, right through to the finished product.

Groupement MICROPAP’s social and environmental responsibility is a top priority for its members, who have committed to a proactive CSR approach:
- compostable product range;
- French supply chain;
- processing and production located in France and based on French expertise.
