Gary Smith

Gary Smith started BioPak with business partner Richard Fine in 2006. Their mission was to reduce the environmental impact of single-use foodservice disposables by producing packaging from rapidly renewable sustainably sourced compostable materials instead of using plastics derived from finite fossil resources. BioPak is the most recognised and trusted supplier of compostable single-use foodservice disposable packaging in Australia and New Zealand. In the span of a decade, BioPak has disrupted the industry and continues to lead by developing innovative packaging solutions based on the principles of a circular economy. As a serial entrepreneur with experience in logistics and information technology, Gary has been instrumental for the rapid growth of BioPak from a start-up into a lean and efficient operation that continues to lead the industry.
