About Abdelouahab
Abdelouahab Toukkart developed his innate strong entrepreneurial skillset from his father. Abdelouahab left university and spent most of his teenage years helping his father while taking up part-time students. Abdelouahab learned much of his entrepreneurial skills from his father, who has a paper manufacturing company. Upon recognizing the significant amount of waste that came from paper manufacturing, Abdelouahab thought of an idea of processing this waste into sweet and baking packaging.

A sweet escape
Isla pack processes used industrial paper. Once the paper has been processed, it is printed on and cut out into various shapes and sizes. The business manufactures candy boxes and prints on demand. While candy boxes have been the most demanded product, the business now also provides baking and cooking wrappings which are quickly growing in demand.

Isla pack services many local bakeries, sweet stores and restaurants. The business supplies over 100 000 boxes monthly.
