- Mondi launches RetortPouch Recyclable – a mono-material solution that supports the circular economy
- Innovative high-barrier film replaces aluminium ensuring new retort pouch solution is fully recyclable
- Extensive research enables range of application needs to be met
Mondi, a global leader in packaging and paper, has added to its range of sustainable premium food and pet food packaging solutions with the launch of RetortPouch Recyclable.
The new high-barrier pouch will replace complex multi-layer and unrecyclable packaging for a range of food and wet pet food products. Moist or semi-moist foods that are heat-treated in steam or hot water retort vessels to achieve commercial sterilisation for shelf-stable foods require retort packaging. The aluminium typically used in most solutions has been substituted with an innovative high-barrier film that keeps temperatures high and maintains short processing times during the retort process. The new mono-material retort packaging is fully recyclable, offering a solution that protects the product, provides exceptional shelf life for a mono-material solution and reduces potential food waste.
