Mondi Shines by Winning Two Awards for Sustainable Food Packaging

Mondi, a leading global packaging and paper manufacturer, has been recognized in this year’s Austrian Green Star Packaging Awards for two recent sustainable packaging innovations developed using its customer-centric approach, EcoSolutions.

Austria’s biggest retailer REWE worked with Mondi to launch a more sustainable cheese tray for their organic brand Ja! Natürlich. Mondi developed a special kraft paper, Advantage Formable Brown, to replace rigid plastic trays. Its unique stretch characteristics mean it could be formed into a shallow tray enhanced with a special barrier coating.

This PerFORMing technology reportedly combines 80 percent paper, a renewable and recyclable raw material, with a 20 percent barrier coating.

Mondi was able to reinvent packaging for Austrian meat producer Hütthaler. The packaging was designed for recycling while maintaining optimum barrier properties and replacing a previous, less sustainable packaging.

“Together with Hütthaler, we developed a mono-material film solution for thermoforming applications that can be fully recycled, and still provides a barrier to protect food. The new film meets high food standards, preserves shelf life and also helps Hütthaler to save on disposal fees due to its recyclability,” said Andreas Koppitz, COO of Mondi's Consumer Flexibles business.

Both products underscore Mondi’s commitment to developing sustainable solutions that contribute to a better world.
