Georgia-Pacific has announced that it plans to close the Green Bay Day Street facility over the next 18 months. This decision does not affect Georgia-Pacific's other operations in Green Bay. The decision to shut down the mill does not reflect the hard work that Day Street employees have performed throughout the years to serve Georgia-Pacific's customers. They have done an admirable job operating these lines as safely and productively as possible. The primary reasons for this decision are a combination of changing customer demand, bath tissue upgrades and investments at other Georgia-Pacific facilities, and less competitive assets at the Day Street mill. Tissue manufacturing at the site will end in mid-May, with some other parts of the mill shutting down in September. The Day Street mill will continue to make napkins until the Fall of 2023.
Mondi, a global leader in sustainable packaging and paper, has collaborated with Fressnapf, Europe’s market leader for pet supplies, to switch their packaging to a new range of premium mono-material recyclable solutions using process colour printing technology.
Fressnapf | Maxi Zoo’s exclusive brand SELECT GOLD dry pet food range will now be packed in Mondi’s FlexiBag Recyclable, BarrierPack Recyclable and Recyclable StandUp Pouches.
These mono-material packaging solutions provide strong barrier properties providing protection from moisture, fat and odour and are strong and flexible to pack and store. As certified by Institute cyclos-HTP, the mono-material packaging is recyclable with other mono-polyethylene (PE) films using various existing recycling streams across Europe, contributing to a circular economy. The adaptability of the packs enabled Fressnapf | Maxi Zoo to design around 150 pet food packaging designs from 300 g to 12 kg. All packaging sizes offer long shelf life and ease of use for consumers.
Mondi has an ongoing partnership with Fressnapf | Maxi Zoo and quickly responded to their request to create the new packaging range for the pet food. The new SELECT GOLD range features expanded colour gamut printing together with a new screening technology by U.Günther, providing sharp text and visuals on the packs. The innovative process uses less inks and eliminates chemicals from the plate production. As the colours for each design don’t need changing, transition from one design to another is quicker and more efficient.
