Mondi, an international leader in sustainable packaging and paper, has allowed Austrian food company Handl Tyrol to pack their bacon in an eye-catching solution that will create a circular economy by supporting materials in circulation.
The monomaterial PP film is recyclable in existing recycling streams for various polyolefins. It maintains the bacon fresh, delivering a ‘second skin’ that seals ensure with a high-barrier top and bottom film. The packaging has been created to glimpse like a wooden chopping board, delivering instant on-shelf appeal and brand recognition.
Working closely with Handl Tyrol, Mondi employed its collaborative EcoSolutions approach to ensure the packaging is best for the manufacturer, product, end user, and environment. The mono-material PP packaging was also shortlisted for the Green Packaging Star Award 2022.
Handl Tyrol says: “This packaging is certainly eye-catching while providing excellent product protection. It works within existing recycling guidelines for retailers across Europe and is a great example of more sustainable packaging with no compromises: it still provides the highest level of food protection, which is always our priority.”
