Paragon Print & Packaging (PPP) are market leaders in food packaging for the fresh and chilled food sector.

PPP is the fastest growing independent packaging supplier to this sector across the UK and Europe.

They have seven manufacturing sites across the UK producing, food packaging, self-adhesive labels, flexible film, food sleeves, linerless labels and food cartons.

In December 2005 LDC announced its investment to fund the future development and growth of PPP. Following an initial exit to Equistone in 2007 with LDC retaining a co-investor stake, PPC was sold to Sun Capital Partners in December 2012.

Throughout the investment the business strengthened its revenue growth and geographic footprint through acquisitions, new partnerships and organic growth. It also diversified its product and customer offering, expanding the business’s customer base to over 1,800 in 2012.
