Mondi 18.05.24

Mondi will be showing its renewable packaging and paper solutions from its PERGRAPHICA, IQ GRASS+ Packaging and IQ Board brands at the touchpoint packaging (tpp) forum at drupa 2024, held from May 28th-June 7th in Düsseldorf, Germany. 

Mondi says the papers are suited to luxury packaging applications and personalization such as laser engraving. Its PERGRAPHICA design papers have a colour palette ranging from three shades of white with rough or smooth surface texture to Infinite Black and 31 colours. 

The company’s uncoated paper with high tear-resistance is IQ GRASS+ Packaging, which is reportedly made of FSC-certified fresh fibre pulp and up to 30% grass fibres. IQ Board is an uncoated virgin fibre paper designed to optimize processing in printing, filling and finishing. 

 The papers are apparently produced in Austria with wood sourced from sustainably managed forests, and all papers at the exhibit meet the international requirements of Cradle to Cradle Certified, the EU Ecolabel and FSC.  

The tpp stand is designed with five focus areas. At two of these areas – ‘Neo-Ecology/Sustainability’ and ‘Consumer’s Mind’, Mondi will be addressing topics including de-inkability, recyclability, cradle-to-cradle certification, and consumer trends. 

Prototypes of luxury perfume packaging, developed in collaboration with the NABA Academy of Fine Arts in Milan, and presentations on finishing options and sustainability efforts in the paper segment will also be at Mondi’s exhibit, in Hall 3, Booth B31. 

Mondi recently provided a recyclable mono-PP pack for Scan Sverige’s Pärsons brand range of sliced ham, salami, and plant-based products. Mondi’s WalletPack consists of a top and bottom film integrated with a high oxygen barrier, designed for recyclability and replacing the previous, multi-material pack made of PET-PE and PA-PE laminates. 

In similar news, two of Aldi’s own-label butter lines will now be sold in home-recyclable, paper-based wrap packaging, in a move hoped to help remove over 10 tonnes of non-recyclable packaging from circulation every year. The recyclable packaging will apply to its Specially Selected West Country and Yorkshire block butter, with the rollout starting next month.
