The integration of circular economy principles within the bio-packaging market is driving changes in the food packaging sector. It contributes to the achievement of climate neutrality goals and builds the economy's resilience to the deficiency of non-renewable resources. The aim of the article is to present the key problems and barriers to the development of bio-packaging supply chains and the reasons for their occurrence in Poland, as well as to propose solutions that accelerate the development of the domestic bio-packaging market. The authors undertake the presentation of research results, including social innovations, that are the synergy effect of the knowledge and experience of food bio-packaging supply chains' stakeholders, including private and public entities.
