Mondi Expands Capacity In Sustainable Pet Food Packaging

Mondi is investing nearly 65 million Euro in three Consumer Flexibles packaging plants in Europe in order to meet growing customer demand for sustainable pet food packaging solutions. The European pet food market has grown significantly in recent years, driven by a consistent rise in pet ownership. This trend increased during the COVID-19 pandemic and is expected to continue for many years to come, according to a report from Mackenzie 2020.

This project is part of Mondi’s previously announced 1 billion Euro expansionary capital investment program to accelerate growth in sustainable packaging.

Work has already started at Mondi Korneuburg (Austria) and includes investments in new machinery and equipment as well as an expanded production area. These changes will lead to a capacity increase for pre-made retort stand-up pouches for wet pet food.

The group is also investing in new machinery at Mondi Halle and Mondi Steinfeld in Germany, to increase production capacity of sustainable pre-made bag solutions for pet food, as well as home and personal care. This will enable future growth and support customers to switch from multi-layer, non-recyclable packaging to more sustainable alternatives such as mono-material recyclable stand-up pouches and paper-based pre-made bags.

This investment also supports our Mondi Action Plan 2030 (MAP2030) sustainability framework which is focused on circular driven solutions, created by empowered people, taking action on climate. With these projects, we’re increasing operational efficiency and reducing our own energy consumption while also connecting our production network.”
