Mondi, a leader in packaging and paper, announced it has added to its range of sustainable premium food and pet food packaging solutions with the launch of RetortPouch Recyclable.

The new high-barrier pouch will replace complex multi-layer and unrecyclable packaging for a range of food and wet pet food products. Moist or semi-moist foods that are heat-treated in steam or hot water retort vessels to achieve commercial sterilisation for shelf-stable foods require retort packaging. The aluminium typically used in most solutions has been substituted with an innovative high-barrier film that keeps temperatures high and maintains short processing times during the retort process. The new mono-material retort packaging is said to be fully recyclable, offering a solution that protects the product, provides extended shelf life for a mono-material solution and reduces potential food waste.

Following extensive research, the launch of RetortPouch Recyclable is another step towards the company’s goal of ensuring that all of its products are reusable, recyclable or compostable by 2025 as part of its MAP2030 commitments, according to the statement.  

“Sustainability is a top priority for Mondi and we are committed to make this innovation available for all our customers by using our customer-centric approach, EcoSolutions. Our fully recyclable solution helps to lower the product’s environmental footprint and customers can be confident that their products will be completely protected throughout manufacturing and transportation and meet their sustainability goals. This is another example of our award-winning expertise in creating sustainable food packaging and delivering circular-driven solutions that work for the customer, the end user and the environment,” said Eveline Wagner-Hahn, Managing Director, Mondi Korneuburg.
