Our History

CM Active was founded in 2009 to fill a specific niche in the Australian and New Zealand markets. 

With little to no sustainable or innovative packaging manufacturers operating locally at that time, founders Julian and Ewan saw a need to connect food brands with reliable and consistent overseas manufacturers.


Having worked in the packaging industry for many years, the team behind CM Active had a unique perspective to offer; providing low-risk solutions for Australian and New Zealand companies in need of high-quality, innovative packaging that met their needs and suited their business requirements.

The Future

What does the future hold for Australia and New Zealand’s sustainable packaging?

Over the last ten years, Australia and New Zealand's ready meal markets have grown significantly but there’s still a shortage of sustainable and affordable packaging.


That’s why we continue to utilise our expertise and connections and provide a low-risk and practical way for Australian and New Zealand businesses to access packaging they can rely on.

Our Offices

CM Active’s Sydney based office was selected with sustainability as a priority.  The Lifestyle Working Building, Brookvale, was chosen, as it set a benchmark in Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD). The building provides considerable energy and environmental savings whilst achieving high levels of comfort for the community of people who work within the building.

The building has a 5½ star Energy and 6 star Water National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) rating certification in Australia and has attracted extraordinary attention from government and leading design organisations. The building encompasses innovation, health, employee productivity and retention.

The building and its characteristics align perfectly with CM Active’s own philosophies of environmental protection, innovation, waste minimisation, reduced emissions and sustainability in all aspects of work and life.
