Mondi, in packaging and paper, is highlighting the need for innovative packaging solutions in the fresh food industry by introducing two new recyclable packaging products – a paper-based tray and a semi-rigid plastic tray – at Anuga FoodTec.

When it comes to preventing food from spoiling, the packaging industry plays a key role. Mondi has developed two new solutions to protect fresh food contents at every stage of the manufacturing and logistics process, ensuring they last longer through clever design and the potential to apply MAP (modified atmosphere packaging) to extend the shelf-life. The packaging inhibits exposure to elements such as moisture, gases and grease, and actively encourages correct consumer use, through resealable functions. This aids convenience and ease of portion control while also reducing food waste.

PerFORMing Monoloop

It is a formable and recyclable paper-based solution for sliced food such as cheese or meat. The paper tray with a barrier layer is combined with a plastic top web solution, allowing excellent product protection while reducing plastic use. The barrier layer can be easily separated from the paper tray so that all elements can be disposed of in the correct waste streams separately. PerFORMing Monoloop, certified recyclable by Institute cyclos-HTP, offers high flexibility for the food manufacturer, as it is suitable for a range of depths and forms on existing lines.

Mono Formable PP

It is a recyclable high barrier MAP solution, created from mono-material polypropylene (PP). Featuring a printed top web and a complementary thermoformable semi-rigid bottom web, the fully recyclable packaging weighs around 30% less than a comparable polyester (PET) tray at the same thickness while offering the same high level of product protection. The innovative solution can substitute the industry standard of multi-material non-recyclable PET trays and is available with a range of features like easy-peel for convenient opening and/or reclosure.

Thomas Kahl, head of Sustainable Packaging Solutions, FMCG and Industrial Channels, Mondi, says, “Sustainability is front and centre when we design new solutions, using paper where possible and plastic when useful. We think deeply about materials and take a holistic approach that supports the development of sustainable systems and circular economies. We are pleased to be launching these new food packaging solutions at the Anuga FoodTec where Mondi is exhibiting for the first time.”

Mondi will be exhibiting its portfolio of sustainable food packaging solutions at Anuga FoodTec in Cologne Germany, from 26 to 29 April 2022 at Hall 8.1, Stand B035, and will also have members of the team speaking at the show.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are growing similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
