G.Mondini – SUSTAINABLE PACKAGING SYSTEMS

Sustainable paper board materials are central in G.Mondini new range of VSP and MAP systems to improve their acceptability, increase performance and enhance product security due to perfect sealing technology.

First of its kind launched by Mondini, SLIMFRESH® reduces plastic content by up to 80% in the vacuum skin market. Combining a fully printed flat cardboard support with a thin high barrier liner, opening new opportunities in pack styling, merchandising and communication.

Whilst maintaining all the benefits of the vacuum skin process it delivers:

• Flat cardboard support designed to be recyclable giving consumer possibility to easily separate the liner from the cardboard and place into suitable waste recovery stream. 

• Combined with Skin technology to extend shelf life reducing food wastage.

• Fully printable cardboard support extends communication and merchandising.

• Flexibility to run on Trave® Trays Sealers through simple tool changes.

 

Building on the success of SLIMFRESH®, this new system was developed and launched to bring the benefits of using flat cardboard supports to sensitive sliced products packaged in MAP® such as meat and cheese. 

• Increased consumer convenience in re-closable version to help in reduction of consumer food waste. 

• Digital printing all over the pack with easy design change to increase consumer communication

• Thinner pack with increased rigidity that expands opportunities for retail merchandising.

• Flexibility to run on Trave® Trays Sealers through simple tool changes.

 

This new system expands the opportunities to replace MAP and VSP plastic trays with barrier lined cardboard. The process operates by fabricating a MAP tray from a pre-cut flat cardboard, which is formed and a barrier liner automatically applied in one step process. The system is based on the same benefit stream as Thermosealer® technology where the fabricating of trays is conducted directly before the tray sealing process.

Through value engineering and clever pack design G.Mondini spa has constructed a cardboard tray system that is straightforward to integrate into current packaging lines giving:

Safety. Unique process to generate perfect sealing surface. Guaranteed state of the art seal integrity equal to traditional plastic packaging.

Flexibility. Availability of different liners and paperboards offers technical solutions to suit any product. Presented for Top Seal, Modified Atmosphere and Vacuum Skin formats. Recommended for cheese, fresh meats, processed meats, ready-made products, frozen foods, snacks, salads and fruit.

Full branding. 360° communication on all surfaces of the package. High quality graphics for premium branding design. Flexibility on communications format – Printing and/or labelling.

Less plastic. It reduces plastic content by up to 80%. Liner forming station with ZERO® technology eliminates all process waste. Easy separation of liner and paperboard for simple and efficient recycling at end of life.

Minimum size maximum skills. Trays delivered as flat boards significantly reduce distribution and storage costs vs premade trays; liner forming with ZERO® waste technology optimises cost of final package. Reduced inventory with availability of smaller purchase quantities.

Kaufland meets G.Mondini Paperseal®

Thanks to the introduction of the new Paperseal® System, Kaufland will save 125 tons of plastic per year for a single product. The concern for the protection of the environment has always been a priority for Schwarz Group, which has established the REset Plastic program, which provides for various implementation measures on the themes of recycling, innovation and education aimed at reducing plastics.

In this context, its supermarket chain Kaufland will introduce from September 2019 the most innovative solution by G.Mondini, Paperseal®, which is a unique packaging system that allows the use of a cardboard container, covered with a thin recyclable plastic film for such products as cheese, fresh meats, processed meats, ready-made products, frozen foods, snacks, salads and fruit. The system allows to easily separate the cardboard and the film, which can then be recycled separately following the instructions on the packaging.

The green smart generation has already started

The first step will be to obtain the reduction up to 70% of the plastic used in the packaging of minced meat. Thus, 125 tons of plastic will be saved each year for just one product, and since the packaging is printed and assembled directly in the meat processing companies, transport costs will also be significantly cut, reducing costs and pollution levels.

Minced meat in the new package will be available in all Kaufland supermarkets from Autumn 2019. Another important successful achievement for G.Mondini SpA.
