This collaboration between Saica and Mondelēz signifies a significant step forward for sustainable food packaging solutions in the food industry.

Saica Group, a leading packaging solutions provider, and Mondelez, a prominent fast-moving consumer goods company, have partnered to introduce a new paper-based product aimed at multipacks for the confectionery, biscuit, and chocolate industries.

The new paper-based packaging is intended to be recyclable in the paper waste stream and is suited for heat sealable packing processes. It can be made coated or uncoated, depending on the desired final appearance.

This product offers a sustainable alternative to traditional plastic multipack packaging. It caters to heat-sealable packing processes and comes in coated or uncoated options to suit desired aesthetics. Throughout development, the companies said a key focus was optimising the product for conversion and vertical form fill seal packing processes.

Mondelēz has already achieved a significant reduction in packaging materials (72,600 tonnes by the end of 2022) and strives for 98% of its packaging to be designed for recyclability by 2025.

Like Mondelez, Saica Group is fully committed to the transition towards a circular economy. To do this, Saica has set a series of ambitious targets in resource efficiency, circularity of materials, climate neutrality, and zero littering, among others.

“We believe that packaging sustainability is a very serious challenge that required our full commitment and far-reaching collaborations with companies equally committed, like Mondelez,” said Miguel Angel Dora, General Manager at Saica Flex.

This collaboration between Saica and Mondelēz signifies a significant step forward for sustainable packaging solutions in the food industry, with positive implications for the environment and responsible resource management.
