Prairie Manufacturer Magazine is an executive-level publication, providing strategic, high-impact, and in-depth insight and information to senior manufacturing leaders across the prairies. They focus on operational insights, market intelligence, and best practices to help leaders in the industry make important business decisions.
The magazine also celebrates the important role women play in advancing the industry by featuring stories from individuals, and recently CEO of Botanical PaperWorks Heidi Reimer-Epp was selected for the spring issue! She shared a bit about her passion for manufacturing and her journey commercializing eco-friendly seed paper that is now sold worldwide to both individuals and businesses.
Below is a short excerpt from the article; you can read the full article here.
“We were working on the plant chapter of one of our books, working with different parts of the flower, and we thought ‘why not put in some seeds?’” says Reimer-Epp. “We knew we had something pretty unique, but it took us three years to commercialize it so we could manufacture it on a large-scale basis.”
