Using Dow’s RETAIN resin technology, ethylene vinyl alcohol copolymer (EVOH) barrier film can be fully recycled in an effort to increase sustainability.

EVOH prevents gases, organic vapours and moisture from reducing the quality of the product, as well as extends shelf life.

Harney & Sons worked in collaboration with TC Transcontinental’s R&D team to create the new packaging solution for its fine teas.

“Our collaboration was the perfect match as sustainability and innovation run deep in our organisation, both in our operations and our partnerships.”

According to the company, the pouch’s ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) barrier can offer product preservation, seal strength and durability.

TC Transcontinental Packaging business development vice-president Todd Addison said: “By promoting and supporting innovation in flexible packaging, we encourage more businesses to develop better eco-responsible solutions.

“We salute Harney & Sons for driving this important sustainable initiative. Our collaboration was the perfect match as sustainability and innovation run deep in our organisation, both in our operations and our partnerships.

“This shared core value and collaborative mindset fuelled our sustainable design process and resulted in a product worthy of bearing the Harney & Sons name.”

TC Transcontinental offers flexible plastic and paper products such as rollstock, bags, pouches, shrink films, bags, and advanced coatings.

It serves a range of markets such as dairy, coffee, meat and poultry, pet food, agriculture, beverage, confectionery, industrial, consumer products and supermarkets.
