Mondi has partnered with Noel Alimentaria to find the most suitable paper-based packaging solution for its range of food products.

Supplying both plant-based and meat foods, Noel Alimentaria chose Mondi’s PerFORMing paper-based tray to pack its range of sliced plant-based food and vegetarian burgers, ‘Verday’. This range is used by Marks and Spencer in the UK and supplied to Nordic markets for ham and charcuterie products.

The trays can be moulded and adapted to suit a range of different-sized food products, with high symmetrical stretch for uniform formability. They offer barrier protection against moisture and oxygen to keep food fresh throughout the storage and distribution process. The trays are made up of 80% paper and designed for recycling. They have passed the recyclability tests by German institute PTS.

Falk Paulsen, Sales & Business Development Director, Mondi, said, “By working very closely with Noel Alimentaria from the outset, we were able to ensure we delivered the best possible option for the entire range of meat and meat-free products, using a tray made from renewable and responsibly sourced material that still provides maximum protection for the goods.”

Maria Sánchez, Corporate Marketing Director, Noel Alimentaria, said maintaining the freshness of products is essential while they are distributed across Europe, and the added sustainability of Mondi’s solution was a welcome bonus.

“We were able to run the new paper-based trays on our existing machinery and will now be using the same solution for our further ranges of ham and other meat products,” Sánchez said.
