Northamptonshire, United Kingdom-headquartered sustainable flexible packaging business, Eco Flexibles, has supported bakery product supplier to the retail, wholesale and foodservice sectors, Lantmännen Unibake, with the development of recyclable flexible packaging for its Schulstad Bake at Home range of products.
As sustainable packaging continues to dominate commercial food and drink product development, Lantmännen sought to create fully recyclable packaging to both communicate the quality of the product and support its environmental agenda.
In close collaboration, the Eco Flexibles team developed and supplied a high-performing surface printed monopolymer film, despite the pressures of tight turnaround times and Covid-19 supply challenges.
The Schulstad Bake at Home range of packaging was developed and printed with Asahi AWP water washable plates, which reportedly eliminate VOC solvent washout from the prepress process.
Aiming to dispel sustainable packaging myths, Eco Flexibles seeks to show how sustainable packaging isn’t a compromise or concession — and can be aligned with the performance demands of today’s high-volume packaging.
