Omnia Packaging opens a production facility in Guelph, Ont., marking a significant milestone for Gruppo Sunino Italy in North America.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony was attended by Filomena Tassi, the minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario (FedDev Ontario); Lloyd Longfield, MP for Guelph; Mike Schreiner, MPP for Guelph; along with Andrea Ferrari, the Italian ambassador in Canada; Luca Zelioli, consulate general of Italy in Toronto and other representatives from the Italian Chamber of Commerce of Ontario and Italian Trade Commission.

“This event has been organized to express our appreciation for the professional support and ongoing cooperation the Canadian Government and the Italian Institutions provide to our company,” shared Paolo Sunino, CEO and owner of Omnia Packaging.

“Congratulations to Omnia Packaging, an Italian family-owned business,” said Tassi. “This beautiful new facility showcases your dedication and passion in positioning Canada for a greener tomorrow.”
