Mondi Provides Packaging Solution for German Pet Food Maker
Mera partnered with Mondi to use pre-made, mono-material, recyclable plastic FlexiBags for its new semi moist dog food.
The FlexiBag features a tight seal to ensure long-term freshness and protection. The packaging is fitted with a one-way valve that vents from the inside to the outside. With the help of the valve, the excess air can escape to improve transport when palletizing the filled packages. The resealable zipper makes it easy for the consumer to open and close the bag, and the packaging has a matte external finish.
Institute cyclos–HTP GmbH, the Institute for Recyclability and Product Responsibility independently tested and certified the material, rating it as 95 percent recyclable in those areas where suitable recycling infrastructures are in place.
“Mondi’s FlexiBag Recyclable is a mono-material, polyethylene-based product with a barrier that is fully recyclable,” said Fitore Loshaj, regional sales DACH for Mondi Consumer Flexibles. “This 12.5 kg bag is the largest of its kind using recyclable packaging in the pet food sector.”
