Australian renewable packaging products manufacturer Cardia Bioplastics will supply its Cardia Biohybrid technology to a German consumer goods company.
The German company has chosen Cardia Biohybrid technology for its product packaging, after four years of quality and performance testing.
Cardia Bioplastics claims that its Cardia Biohybrid technology was tested in a stringent approval process for high-performance rigid packaging applications, including quality, performance, price, environmental claims, intellectual property position and freedom to operate.
The technology was tested for food safety compliance, as well as delivering superior packaging performance through the product life cycle.
Cardia Bioplastics managing director Frank Glatz said: "Collaborating with this well-known German consumer goods company presented an exciting opportunity to develop high-performance packaging with lower environmental impact.
"In addition to offering a product with beneficial environmental profile and full food safety compliance, a key criterion for success was in delivering superior packaging performance through the entire product life cycle.
"In addition to meeting all product performance criteria, the tests confirmed that our Biohybrid technology enhanced the shelf life of the packaged product due to its good gas barrier properties."
The German consumer goods company will launch its products featuring Cardia Biohybrid technology packaging in early 2015.
It has initially ordered containers with plans to order more, as it has the capacity to expand rapidly within the fast-moving consumer goods sector.
