Volpak, a horizontal form-fill-seal solutions provider, and European speciality paper manufacturer Lecta have teamed up to advance the development of sustainable paper-based packaging materials.  

The collaboration is focused on assessing the viability of Lecta’s eco-friendly papers for flexible packaging applications across various sectors, including foodservice. 

Lecta noted that the focus on paper-based packaging will help the partners meet the preferences of consumers while lowering the packaging’s impact on the environment. 

As part of the project, Volpak is conducting extensive tests within its pouch lab, an internal research and development facility dedicated to evaluating the material’s machinability and durability. 

The aim is to ensure these sustainable papers can be integrated into current packaging processes, maintaining efficiency and quality.  

The partnership is a multiphase project, currently in the trial stage, with actual products to verify the effectiveness of the papers and achieve necessary certifications for market release.
