This paper unravels critical and imminent issues in co-innovation of bioplastic packaging. The current state of bioplastic packaging signifies the challenges caused by the mismatch of the characteristics of bioplastic packaging and the products they are intended for, and confirms the needs for a supplier-customer co-innovation. Although co-innovation, to a large extent, demonstrates immense potentials in promoting product improvement and environmental benefits, co-innovation in bioplastic packaging has not been extensively studied. This paper offers the processes and mechanisms of co-innovation in the form of a conceptual framework, detailing the joint activities and joint resources that address the specific bioplastic packaging characteristics.
