Mondi addresses flexible consumer market demands
Packaging and paper group Mondi is exhibiting its latest flexible product portfolio at Interpack 2017, focusing on convenience, finishing and sustainability.
For example, the CornerPack bag with semi-circular scoring lines at the pack’s corner, which, thanks to its easy and controlled opening, is said to allow consumers to more easily dispense the product inside. To help consumers enjoy the product for longer by retaining both taste and aroma, Mondi is also presenting StripePack, a convenient solution to address the growing demand among snack brands for easy-open packaging.
For food brands looking to attract attention on the shelf, Mondi has new paper touch solutions, including an upgraded, paper, flat bottom bag – the FlexziBox – and a paper lid film. With an attractive appearance at the point of sale and excellent stability, the FlexziBox solution stands out on the shelf thanks to its flat, stable base with rounded edges. By ensuring easy opening and reclosing options, Mondi says it is designed to keep dry products, such as coffee, tea or pet food, fresher for longer.
The high quality of the printed graphics (including both flexo and roto gravure), in combination with the natural haptic, make it an alternative for brands. The natural look and feel is also preserved when using the paper lid film which ensures high product protection and extended shelf life, while making sure to catch the shoppers’ eye at the same time.
Mondi’s commitment to addressing packaging waste is being highlighted on the stand by the latest mono material developments for premade and form-fill and seal stand-up pouches, including stiff coextruded PE film and very stiff PE laminate options. Thanks to improved features and advanced design, these materials are able to replace traditional PET/PE laminates and its mono material offers an improved opportunity for recycling, Mondi says.
Georg Kasperkovitz, CEO of consumer packaging, notes, “Keeping in mind the growing consumer demand for convenient, long-lasting, but also sustainable packaging, at Interpack we present a range of solutions to help address these needs. We believe sustainable development makes good business sense and that is why we continue to look for ways to enhance the value our product solutions create today and tomorrow, by doing more with less.”
