IUV Ltd. is an innovative Italian startup born from the insight of a young food technologist, Dr. Cosimo Maria Palopoli, who since high school has made his own the serious problem of plastics pollution, creating innovative coatings and films that can replace them.
His studies at the University of Florence together with the Catholic University have allowed him to acquire the skills to transform an idea into a project.
Established in 2019, the company is focused on the research, development, production and sales of technological aids and innovative, sustainable and natural packaging. The company works primarily in the food, toiletries, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, home care and logistics sectors.
