With year-on-year growth at over double the industry rate, RAP has been recognised as one of Europe’s top 500 growth companies.

The designers and manufacturers of sustainable food packaging ranked an impressive number 71 alongside only 18 other UK companies included in the coveted top 100. Europe’s 500 listing focuses on job-creation and turnover among medium-sized companies, across all business sectors.

The distinction marks the significant contribution RAP has made to the creation of new employment and prosperity in Europe.

Recently, this included a €6million investment in Ireland manufacturing facilities and the development of breakthroughs in fresh food packaging. The company has spearheaded its international reputation as a leading supplier to some of Europe’s most well-known retailers, coffee shops and food-to-go outlets, with moves being made to expand into the US market.

Graham Williams, RAP’s CEO says: “Being ranked amongst only a select few companies in Europe is a fantastic achievement. It not only bolsters our position as market leaders, but also reinforces our commitment to future growth.”

RAP’s recent innovations include the launch of RapTray™, the world’s first hermetically sealed, modified atmosphere carton food tray.
