Orkla’s new climate-smart food launch by Mondi

Mondi, a worldwide leader in a packaging solution, has made three sustainable packaging products for a brand-new range of vegan products from food producer Orkla.

The branded consumer goods business worked closely with Mondi to make sustainable, high-performance packaging for the Swedish company. It introduced its Frankful® plant-based Tex Mex range – soft tortilla wraps, tortilla crisps, taco spices.

Each bespoke packaging solution has been produced to give consumers premium product freshness and ensure a standout appearance on the shelf for retailers. Using a collaborative strategy, Mondi supported Orkla’s sustainability project, including starting healthier food products, reducing food waste, and offering environmentally-friendly choices. The 3 Frankful products benefit from tailor-made packaging that extends shelf life, perspectives portion control, and recyclable.

Original soft tortillas will be the whole of the first food products packaged in Mondi’s innovative BarrierPack Recyclable pack. It utilizes a high-barrier, lightweight mono-material, a re-tape can have the food fresh in its initial packaging and stop waste.

Taco spice mix is packed in a paper-based laminate, designed from FSC certified paper, and flexible made from renewable supplies. The high paper content assures suitability for Swedish recycling paper streams.

Tortilla crisps are retained crunchy and fresh, acknowledging Mondi’s metal-free high-barrier laminate. It makes the new packaging solution completely recyclable. It abolishes the need to include a metalized layer while maintaining the crispness and avoiding grease leakage.

It aims to run jointly with our esteemed partners through our customer-centric program, EcoSolutions, to design sustainable packaging and works for the products, consumers, and the conditions. The challenge with Frankful® was to find a solution that would ensure recyclable packaging materials while giving the needed functionalities such as barrier protection and still run on the existing machines at full speed – Thomas Kahl, Mondi EcoSolutions Project Manager.

Åsa Gisel, Marketing Manager at Orkla Foods Sweden, added: “As a market-leading customer goods company spreading across the Nordic region, we dedicated to meeting the UN’s sustainable development goals – and as responsible sourcing is a key point in our strategy, Mondi has given valuable support to produce improved sustainable packaging. The Frankful® range gives consumers fresh, climate-smart Taco meal products that look good and, of course, taste delicious.
