Jufico, a German food and beverage producer, is launching a new, recyclable packaging design for its range of products marketed under the FruchtBar brand.
As the first in Germany, the company has opted for Gualapack’s Pouch5 solution, a high-barrier monomaterial pouch without aluminium, developed to meet the demands of a circular economy.
Thanks to its high oxygen and water vapour barrier, the pouch offers the same performance in terms of product protection as conventional barrier solutions.
Gualapack is a leading Italian manufacturer of premade spouted pouches. According to the company, the new premade spouted Pouch5 solution is available in 2 versions: for hot-filled and pasteurized shelf stable products, and for cold filling /dairy applications.
Pouch5 has been certified as recyclable by environmental service provider Interseroh Dienstleistungs-GmbH. Scoring 20 out of 20, the product met the recyclability criteria developed by Interseroh in collaboration with bifa environmental and Fraunhofer IVV institutes and passed all tests with flying colours.
Pouch5 was also recently adopted by Nestle (Gerber) in the USA and Nestle (Piltti) in Finland.
