A partnership between Innovia Films and Bio4Pack has resulted in a bio-based packaging laminate structure being developed using Innovia’s renewable and compostable NatureFlex film.
Netherlands-based Bio4Pack has used the packaging option for Aardse Droom’s organic Sapana Delibars.
The laminate structure, BBII80, uses Innovia Films’ compostable cellulose NatureFlex NK Matt film as the outer layer, giving a natural premium paper appearance. A metallised NatureFlex film enhances the moisture barriers, making it suitable for a wide range of applications such as cereal bars and both bean and ground coffee.
Bio4Pack’s Patrick Gerritsen said: “We liked recommending and using NatureFlex films in this application because they fit perfectly, not only with the ethos of the organic Sapana Delibars’ brand, but also because of the barrier properties they can bring to a laminate pack structure such as BBII80.”
Innovia Films marketing manager, packaging and sustainability Andy Sweetman, added: “Our NatureFlex films are increasingly being used in bio-laminate packaging constructions such as BBII80 to provide the necessary barrier. The new NatureFlex NK Matt film gives a quality natural look and feel to this application. The Bio4Pack-Innovia Films partnership is one of several that we are developing across the globe with key industry players to ensure we can meet demand for innovative, bespoke bio-based packaging solutions.”
