The work begins
‘When life stops, it becomes clear to a person what is really important.’
The idea behind Kamupak was born when our founder Iida's life was close to ending. When Iida suffered a severe injury as a result of a serious accident, not only everyday life changed but also the vision of where our founder should spend their time on earth.
Validating the concept
Iida gets together with our two other founders, Karri and Eero to validate wether the system would be environmentally sustainable as well as viable. Kamupak's digital deposit system is starting to take form and is tested for the first time.
Launching 1st KamuDish
The 1st KamuDish, the 1,2L flat plastic container, is launched. This "one-size-fits-all" KamuBox is later accompanied by added sizes in the product family.
KamuCup and the Ministry of the Environment
Kamupak partners up with the Finnish Ministry of the Environment to test reusable coffee cups in a pilot project. The project attracts a lot of interest and increases awareness in reusablitiy.
10 000 saved!
10 000 single-use take-away packages saved with using KamuDishes.
Our product family grows
Kamupak product family is increased with two additional KamuBoxes (0,5L & 1,7L) and two sizes of KamuCups (250ml & 340ml).
Kamupak's products can be used all around Finland. Expanding together with Finland's beloved café chain Picnic enables using reusable take away dishes from Helsinki to Rovaniemi.
This was the year of expansion and growth. Our team doubled in size, as did the amount of products we have. We closed on a round of financing, and expanded our partner network with big global companies like Wolt and Sodexo.
Taking over the Nordics
With new laws in place (finally!), the EU is phasing out single-use plastics. Kamupak is going to be the leading partner for individuals and businesses in this transition. Merger with &Repeat will boost our #1 position in the Nordics.
Our founders have wide knowledge about circular economy, sustainable design, business design, technology and marketing.
Our brilliant go getter team of professionals has the perfect mixture of right attitude, world saviourism, and cold hard skills ready to take on the world.
Let's change the world together #OneMealAtATime
We want to act as a catalyst for new circular economy solutions, both in Finland and abroad. We keep working hard to fulfill our mission of becoming a new, mass-accepted way of consuming sustainably.
