Mondi, a global leader in sustainable packaging and paper, has helped Austrian food company Handl Tyrol to wrap their bacon in an eye-catching solution that will contribute to a circular economy by keeping materials in circulation.
The mono-material polypropylene (PP) film is recyclable in existing recycling streams for mixed polyolefins and keeps the bacon fresh, providing a ‘second skin’ that seals securely with both a high-barrier top and bottom film. The packaging has been designed to look like a wooden chopping board, providing 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 of course is always our first priority.”
