Mondi’s Sustainable Packaging Hits the Right Note for Orkla’s New Climate-Smart Food Launch

Mondi, a global leader in packaging and paper, has created three sustainable packaging products for a brand-new range of vegan products from food manufacturer Orkla.

The branded consumer goods company worked closely with Mondi to create sustainable, high-performance packaging for the Swedish launch of its Frankful® plant-based Tex Mex range – soft tortilla wraps, tortilla crisps and taco spices.

Each bespoke packaging solution has been designed to provide premium product freshness for consumers and ensure a standout appearance on the shelf for retailers. Using a truly collaborative approach, Mondi supported Orkla’s sustainability agenda, which reportedly includes launching healthier food products, reducing food waste and offering environmentally friendly choices.

The three Frankful products benefit from tailor-made packaging that extends shelf life, balances portion control and is recyclable.

  • Original soft tortillas will be one of the first food products to be packaged in Mondi’s innovativeBarrierPack Recyclable, which reportedly uses a high-barrier, lightweight mono-material and a reclose tape to keep the food fresh in its original packaging and prevent waste;
  • Taco spice mix is packaged in apaper-based laminate, created from FSC certified paper and a film made from renewable resources. The high paper content reportedly ensures suitability for Swedish recycling paper streams; and
  • Tortilla crisps are kept crunchy and fresh, thanks to Mondi’smetal-free high-barrier laminate, which makes the new solution completely recyclable.

“Our aim is to work closely with our valued partners through our customer-centric approach, EcoSolutions, in order to create sustainable packaging that works for the products, the customer and the environment,” said Thomas Kahl, project manager, EcoSolutions, Mondi. “The challenge with Frankful was to find a solution that would ensure recyclable packaging materials while offering the required functionalities such as barrier protection, and still run on the existing machines at full speed.”

“As a market-leading consumer goods company distributing across the Nordic region, we are committed to meeting the UN’s sustainable development goals – and as responsible sourcing is a key point in our strategy, Mondi has provided invaluable support to create improved sustainable packaging,” said Åsa Gisel, marketing manager, Orkla Foods Sweden.
