Ӧcoologisch Herz Lollies packed with NatureFlex compostable cellulose films

German confectionery brand, Cool, has chosen NatureFlex compostable cellulose films from Futamura to package its confectionery product Ӧcoologisch Herz Lolli. NatureFlex, and its big sister brand Cellophane, have long been used for confectionery packaging due to their excellent technical performance for this market application. They have a sound barrier, outstanding optical clarity, and unrivaled dead fold, a real benefit for traditional twist wrap applications. The films can also be printed and laminated, just like conventional plastic films.

Ӧcoologisch Herz Lolli in six delicious flavors

Ӧcoologisch Herz Lolli is a range of lollipops including six delicious flavors: strawberry, cherry, orange, lemon, apple, and coke. The individual lollies are wrapped in single-ply NatureFlex, and the outer bag is a NatureFlex / biofilm laminate. Both packaging solutions are printed and converted by the Dutch company Bio4Pack.

NatureFlex is a range of renewable films made from wood pulp, sourced from responsibly and sustainably managed plantations. Not only do they meet all the global standards for industrial composting (including EN13432), but they are also home compostable and certified by the TŰV Austria OK Compost Home composting standard for backyard composting. It is difficult to recycle small format applications such as confectionery, which means that NatureFlex films can go straight into the garden compost bin, diverting waste from landfills.

Richter commenting on the reason for choosing NatureFlex

When asked why they chose NatureFlex, André Richter from Cool said: “We were looking for an ‘environmentally friendly’ variant of this type of packaging and found a suitable price-performance ratio at NatureFlex. Good quality, stability, and hold are important. Doing something good for the environment at the same time – what more could you want?”

He also added, “We have found the machine performance to be good and in no way inferior to other conventional films. We regularly receive good feedback from consumers who feel it is very positive that we care about the environment, often asking if other products are using these biofilms.”

Yasar Tuerkoglu, sales manager at Bio4pack, said, “We use NatureFlex films for a number of our customers, either on their own or as part of bio-laminate. We have found that consumers really care about the environmental impact of their packaging. Composting is a great solution that is part of a growing circular economy. It is essential for high-litter risk packs like small format confectionery, such as these lolly wrappers. If they accidentally end up in the environment, we know the packs will safely break down, not stay around for hundreds of years. Although we would never advocate littering, always composting!”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
