Making the Packaging System Fit the Circular Economy

For the packaging industry to achieve a sustainable future, it needs to dramatically increase circularity and the reuse of materials. While shifting from a linear economy to a circular model will take time, there are already actions that brands, manufacturers, and converters can already take to help make a difference. This document by Siegwerk – a global leader in inks and coatings for packaging – delves into solving the plastic paradox, looks at the relevance of bioplastics, and sets out ways to not only achieve circularity in packaging but also make it economically viable. Furthermore, the document goes into detail on how printing inks and coatings are vital for enabling circularity in packaging. Ultimately, the packaging system needs to be reconfigured for a circular future. And consumers are expecting the packaging industry to play its part in progress.

Both partners worked closely to create three packaging products for Orkla ’s new Frankful range of vegan, climate-smart taco products.

The packaging solutions are for the Swedish launch of Frankful plant-based Tex Mex range of soft tortilla wraps, tortilla crisps and climate-smart taco spices.

Mondi EcoSolutions project manager Thomas Kahl said: “Our aim is to work closely with our valued partners through our customer-centric approach, EcoSolutions, in order to create sustainable packaging that works for the products, the customer and the environment.

“The challenge with Frankful was to find a solution that would ensure recyclable packaging materials while offering the required functionalities such as barrier protection, and still run on the existing machines at full speed.”

Developed using a collaborative approach, the packaging solutions aim to attract customer’s attention on the retailer’s shelf and support Orkla ’s sustainability agenda.

Mondi’s three packaging solutions are BarrierPack Recyclable, paper-based laminate and metal-free high-barrier laminate.

The BarrierPack Recyclable for Frankful’s Original soft tortillas features a high-barrier, lightweight mono-material with a reclose tape.

The paper-based laminate has been used to pack Frankful’s Taco spice mix developed from FSC certified paper and a film produced using renewable resources.

Additionally, Frankful’s Tortilla crisps are packaged in Mondi’s metal-free high-barrier laminate.

Orkla Foods Sweden marketing manager Åsa Gisel said: “As a market-leading consumer goods company distributing across the Nordic region, we are committed to meeting the UN’s sustainable development goals – and as responsible sourcing is a key point in our strategy, Mondi has provided invaluable support to create improved sustainable packaging.”
