Healthy food that ticks green boxes


A German brand, Jäger und Sammler, has chosen Innovia Films’ compostable flexible material, NatureFlex™ as the packaging for its range of premium energy bars. NatureFlex™ was an obvious choice for the packaging as the film begins life as a natural product – wood – and breaks down in a home compost bin (or industrial compost environment) within a matter of weeks. Yet it also offers advantages for packing and converting such as inherent deadfold and anti-static properties, resistance to grease and oil, good barrier to gases, aromas and mineral oils and a wide heat-seal range. “The compostability of this film in combination with it being manufactured from renewable resources is exactly what we were looking for in our approach towards healthier food where no harm is caused to the environment,” said Jäger und Sammler founder Ivan Perez.
