Mondi addresses flexible consumer market demands


2017-05-08

In order to directly respond to ever-changing consumer trends, Mondi is exhibiting its latest flexible product portfolio at interpack 2017. On display at stand A24 are a wide range of products focusing on convenience, finishing and sustainability. For example, the CornerPack bag with semi-circular scoring lines at the pack’s corner, which, thanks to its easy and controlled opening, allows consumers to more easily dispense the product inside. To help consumers enjoy the product for longer by retaining both taste and aroma, Mondi also presents StripePack, a convenient solution to address the growing demand among snack brands for easy-open packaging.

For food brands looking to attract attention on the shelf, Mondi has new paper-touch solutions, including an upgraded, paper, flat-bottom bag – the FlexziBox – and a paper lid film. With an attractive appearance at the point of sale and excellent stability, the FlexziBox solution literally stands out on the shelf thanks to its flat, stable base with rounded edges. By ensuring easy opening and reclosing options, it is an ideal solution to keep dry products, such as coffee, tea or pet food, fresher for longer.  The high quality of the printed graphics (including both flexo and roto gravure), in combination with the natural haptic, make it an exciting alternative for brands looking for that extra “something special”. The natural look and feel is also preserved when using the paper lid film which ensures high product protection and extended shelf life, while making sure to catch the shoppers’ eye at the same time.

According to PCI, the supplier industry has grown to over US$80 billion in its effort to keep up with growing markets and increasingly complex consumer demands. The need for flexible packaging solutions for the pre-made food and pet food industries is no different. The consumer has never been so environmentally-conscious and, as a result, the European flexible packaging supplier market alone is expected to reach nearly 15 billion euro by 2020. Mondi’s commitment to addressing packaging waste is highlighted on the stand by the latest mono material developments for premade and form-fill and seal stand-up pouches. Visitors can see first-hand, the stiff coextruded PE film and very stiff PE laminate options. Thanks to improved features and advanced design, these materials are able to replace traditional PET/PE laminates and its mono material offers an improved opportunity for recycling, the company claims.
