AD is a sustainable packaging solutions company involved in the design, manufacture and wholesale of paper and plastic disposable products with an environmental perspective. Importer and exporter of unique disposable consumables with a point of difference – Our focus is on developing innovative, sustainable products within the category.

Over the last few years our focus has been on developing innovative, sustainable products within the disposables “TO-GO” category, in essence taking the “commodity” out of the products. We have created the world’s first digitalised paper coffee cup – (www.Ukonektcups.com), combining campaign software and a premium coffee cup, coffee chains and other users can use the Ukonekt cups to drive sales, increase footfall and engage with customers especially with delivery.

In conjunction with TU Dublin and Enterprise Ireland, Active Difference has also developed the SIS-PAK sealing system: a “Quick Use” sustainable beverage pack to replace plastic bottles for home delivery. The system includes a sustainable, fully recyclable paper container with a sealing lid, a travel cup and pointed paper straw for use.  


Bespoke Service

We manage all aspects of a bespoking program you can offer to your customers including artwork assistance, colour selections, live samples etc.

Secure Business

We are loyal to our customers; we help you to develop your business and don’t take direct business our customers create.

Sales and Marketing

We offer professional, personalized marketing materials including sales flyers and posters for the products to help you sell.

At AD, all of our products are made for a circular economy. The circular economy is a model of product and consumption, which involves sharing, leasing, reusing, repairing, refurbishing and recycling existing materials and products as long as possible. In this way, the life cycle of products is extended.

We believe that as few raw materials should be used as possible. At the same time, the material should itself be recycled or made from eco-friendly resources. We constantly redesign our products in order to reduce wastage and  materials used.

We strive to produce products with increased functionality- creating 1 product that replaces 3 others. It all comes down to one thing……Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

Our overall goal is to to provide the right product, in the right application, for the right reason. 

 We don’t take things on face value, we review and consider all eco-claims on our terms to ensure what we are doing is right. When we make decisions based on good principles, and live by good values, we can improve the lives of others and the experiences of both our customers and employees.

It can be very easy to rationalize your decisions by saying, “Everyone does it”, you should reconsider. Unethical behavior is not only what you believe to be right and fair, it is a reflection of your personal brand and what people can expect from you personally and professionally. 

We Understand any short term gain by making unethical or eco claim can in the longer term derstroy and damage our companies reputation.

“Ethical behavior is doing the right thing when no one else is watching – even when doing the wrong thing is legal.

We work to take the commodity out of the products we supply through innovation, R&D, customer collaboration and design rethinking. 


Innovation, as a concept, refers to the process that an individual or organization undertakes to conceptualize brand new products, processes, and ideas, or to approach existing products, processes, and ideas in new ways.


In the world of business, there are many different types of innovation that a company might pursue. These are often tied directly to individual products, internal processes or workflows, or business models. Some companies even embrace all three in an effort to spearhead growth while adapting to the ever-changing market.
