Mondi, a global packaging and paper specialist, has been rewarded by the Hungarian Association of Packaging and Materials Handling with Hungaropack award for its sustainable paper-based FlexiBag.
Mondi’s FlexiBag is made from renewable paper resources and enhanced with a functional plastic barrier ensuring premium product protection. The packaging impressed the jury with its potential to minimize plastic waste across numerous industries and sectors, most notably for dry perishable goods. In addition, the paper-based FlexiBag was recognized for its high-quality flexo printing quality, which offers brands excellent shelf appeal.
The win comes courtesy of Mondi’s collaboration with German pet food producer Interquell, using the FlexiBag technology for its premium dog food brand Goood. The 100 percent airtight and re-closable pre-made bags offer product protection and easy consumer handling while meeting the pet food maker’s goal to reduce the use of plastic in its operations.
‘We are honored that this award acknowledges Mondi’s drive to deliver packaging that is sustainable by design.
