Hungerford (UK), Bleiswijk (NL) -- Bio4Life BV has strengthened its position in the area of biodegradable and renewable materials by acquiring the majority shareholding of Sustainable Adhesive Products (SAP) Ltd, who developed the world's 1st compostable pressure sensitive adhesive. The acquisition includes the brand BioTAK®, which is still the only certified compostable adhesive as defined by the European Compostable Packaging Standard EN13432.

Arjan Klapwijk, owner of Bio4Life BV comments "Although we are very successful in developing new applications in biodegradable packaging, the BioTAK® adhesive secures our position in some new and exciting markets.

SAP Ltd was founded in 2006 by Paul Roscoe and the BioTAK products were successfully launched initially through his own label company, Berkshire Labels. BioTAK® has won awards for its achievements in environmental innovation. SAP Ltd will continue to manufacture its current certified BioTAK® adhesive although the focus is now on developing other grades utilising its unique properties.

Paul Roscoe, founder of SAP Ltd comments "We are very excited about the future of BioTAK® and the new level of development and commitment that has come from Bio4Life. The overall knowledge and understanding that Bio4Life already has with compostable materials will ensure that BioTAK® will remain a world leader in the compostable market place". Sales and logistics will be carried out from the new purpose built Dutch Headquarters in Bleiswijk.
