Multilayer Packaging: Innovative and Sustainable
SustainableBrands.com - BASF, Borealis, Südpack and Zott present prototypes of food packaging made from 100% recycled material
Multilayer packaging reliably ensures high-quality and fresh food products thanks to its properties. It protects the products and keeps them hygienic, thereby extending the shelf life of food. This is of particular importance in light of global food supply – one third of all food produced worldwide is spoiled before it reaches consumers’ plates. Smart solutions with multilayer packaging can play a part in reducing this unnecessary waste.
Multilayer packaging is sustainable: it does not require much material and can now also be produced from chemically recycled material.
“Today’s high-tech film packaging solutions consist of multiple materials and layers with different properties, such as an oxygen barrier. And thanks to the optimized use of materials, we were able to reduce the packaging volume to a minimum,” said Johannes Remmele, Managing Director of Südpack.
