Thinkpac’s Journey in the CSIRO Innovate to Grow Program: A Pioneering Step in Australian SME Innovation and Circular Economy

Thinkpac is thrilled to announce its selection for the esteemed CSIRO Innovate to Grow Program. Designed to fuel Australian SME innovation, this program is a pivotal milestone in our commitment to sustainable packaging and the circular economy. Based in our Melbourne business hub, we’re excited to push the boundaries of plastic recycling and resource efficiency further than ever before.

The Power of Innovation

This unique initiative by CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency, provides a platform for small to medium enterprises (SMEs) like Thinkpac to advance in research and development (R&D). With opportunities for mentorship, R&D tax incentives, and insights from industry experts, Thinkpac will further solidify its position as a leader in eco-friendly solutions and waste minimization.

Bridging the Gap: Local Sourcing and Global Impact

Thinkpac is not just another company in the plastic packaging sector; we pride ourselves on our eco-conscious approach. We’ve been at the forefront of sustainable business practices, leveraging Australian recycling initiatives and our Melbourne distribution center to create a closed-loop system.

An Eco-Conscious Approach to Plastic Recycling

Plastic recycling has often been a murky area, but Thinkpac has made it a transparent and efficient process. Our upcycling techniques and recycling facilities are part of our broad strategy to achieve a circular economy and sustainable packaging. Our bin liners, one of the many products in our line, are an excellent example of how soft plastics can be turned into something useful again, thereby contributing to life cycle analysis and resource efficiency.

The Role of Mentorship

One of the significant aspects of the Innovate to Grow Program is the mentorship opportunities. Through expert speakers’ sessions and participant talks, Thinkpac aims to glean wisdom from industry pioneers. These mentors offer insights into supply chain sustainability, R&D tax incentives, and much more.

Broadening Networks and Future Goals

Being a part of this program doesn’t just mean better business for Thinkpac; it’s about setting a precedent for Australian SMEs and startups in the eco-industrial sector. The startup ecosystem in Australia is burgeoning, and we are keen to connect and collaborate with like-minded businesses through this program. Networking opportunities and constructive feedback from experts are valuable assets we look forward to gaining, as we broaden our networks and aim to set new benchmarks in eco-friendly warehousing and custom packaging solutions.


The CSIRO Innovate to Grow Program is a golden opportunity for Thinkpac to grow as a leader in sustainability and circular economy. As we work through the program, we’re excited about the numerous possibilities that lay ahead. Our focus on waste minimization, plastic recycling, and local sourcing underscores our commitment to both business innovation and ecological responsibility. So, stay tuned as we continue this exciting journey towards creating a more sustainable future.
