Mondi, a global player in packaging and paper, has introduced its first recyclable functional barrier paper bag for salads in the Group LSDH’s Les Crudettes range. Sustainable packaging is a fully integrated solution – Mondi operates across the value chain from sustainably managed forests to producing pulp and kraft paper, applying the coating, and printing the final material.
The French salad brand has replaced its transparent glossy polypropylene (PP) packaging with Mondi’s recyclable functional barrier paper for a selection of its pre-washed, ready-to-eat salads. The new packaging is 95% paper with a functional barrier layer, meaning the salad remains fresh for up to 10 days, the same amount of time as with the previous plastic packaging. It is verified as recyclable in the waste paper stream in France by the Recycling Authority (Cerec).
The bags are flexoprinted, with depictions of the salad contents on the front, along with a QR Code, which informs consumers about the contents, quality, recycling, and even refund policy, if they happen to purchase a bag where the contents are not as fresh as expected.
"We evaluated everything, from sourcing to machinery, and the recycling process – all while collaborating closely with LSDH to deliver a sustainable solution without compromising on packaging performance. A key focus of our Mondi Action Plan 2030 (MAP2030) is to develop packaging that keeps materials in circulation and prevents waste," said Paulus Goess, Sales Director Speciality Kraft Paper at Mondi.
