Sustainable paper and packaging company Mondi and packaging machinery manufacturer Syntegon have joined forces to develop a recyclable paper packaging solution for dry food products.

As part of the partnership, Mondi will supply its EcoVantage kraft paper to Syntegon, who will apply spot coating to it to create dust-tight, heat-sealable packaging.

Syntegon’s technology limits the usage of sealing agents while ensuring the protection of powdered food goods and packaging strength.

The packaging marks the first time EcoVantage kraft paper is used on dry food packaging. It is recyclable in existing paper waste streams as it is made from responsibly sourced fibres.

It will be used on dried foods such as flour, sugar and pasta, Mondi said.

Mondi’s head of R&D and Intellectual Property Flexible Packaging Elisabeth Schwaiger said: “Thanks to the close partnership with Syntegon and our extensive technical expertise and knowledge of paper, we can support our customers in making more sustainable choices.

“With high recycling rates of paper and the use of wood as a renewable material, we are delivering a packaging innovation that embraces resource efficiency, waste reduction and recyclability.”

The development of these new packaging solutions is in line with Mondi Group’s MAP2030 goal.

The packaging is also approved by ISEGA for use in the entire food packaging sector.

Syntegon Sustainability director Torsten Sauer said: “With paper packaging that is both recyclable and containing recycled material we are making a big step towards closing the circularity loop for primary food packaging.”

Last month, Mondi developed a new paper bag solution intended for roll-packed mattresses.
