- VIENNA, Austria, Nov. 23, 2021 (Press Release) -
- Mondi’s paper-based FlexiBag with high-quality flexoprinting is recognised as an innovative alternative to plastic packaging in this year’s Hungarian Hungaropack award.
- The sustainable packaging solution is produced by using renewable resources and reduces plastic consumption of German pet food producer Interquell.
- The paper-based FlexiBag was developed using Mondi’s customer-centric EcoSolutions approach.
Mondi, a global leader in packaging and paper, has taken home a Hungaropack award for its sustainable paper-based FlexiBag at this year’s contest organised by the Hungarian Association of Packaging and Materials Handling.
Mondi’s FlexiBag is made from renewable paper resources and enhanced with a functional plastic barrier ensuring premium product protection. The packaging impressed the jury with its potential to minimise plastic waste across numerous industries and sectors, most notably for dry perishable goods. In addition, the paper-based FlexiBag was recognised for its high-quality flexoprinting quality, which offers brands great shelf appeal.
The win comes courtesy of Mondi’s collaboration with German pet food producer Interquell, who is using the paper-based alternative to plastic packaging specifically for its premium dog food brand Goood. The 100% airtight and reclosable pre-made FlexiBags offer outstanding product protection and easy consumer handling while meeting the pet food maker’s goal to reduce the use of plastic in its operations.
“We are honoured that this award acknowledges Mondi’s drive to deliver packaging that is sustainable by design. It is a testament to our EcoSolutions approach that puts our customers’ unique needs and environmental objectives at the heart of every project. Our paper-based FlexiBag is a direct result of this and a great example of impactful innovation as its adoption contributes to a better world.”
