Sappi’s paper-based packaging solution with an integrated barrier against mineral oil is intended for both outer and inner packaging. Its original application was dry foodstuffs such as pasta, rice, cereals, pudding powder, tea, and much more; and that remains the case today. What’s more, thanks to good heat-sealing properties, these recyclable packaging materials also represent an alternative to PE packaging which offers good sealing properties but does not have any mineral oil barrier. Sappi has jointly developed another exciting paper-based packaging solution in collaboration with the Belgian chocolate producer Delafaille. This solution has grease and mineral oil barriers and also prevents the ingress of oxygen and water vapour, and is being used with the company’s luxury Amusette chocolate brand. The brand needed a paper type that could be used with no additional foil lamination or adhesive, minimising the production costs involved. As part of the world’s largest packaging trade fair, Sappi also presented initial results of the recently announced cooperation agreement between Sappi and Felix Schoeller. The two companies have developed a paper-based, sealable packaging solution with high-barrier properties against water vapour, oxygen and grease.
