Mondi (mondigroup.com), the international packaging and paper group, will present innovative, high-performance and eco-efficient solutions addressing the trends and demands of the packaging industry and end-users at Interpack 2014.
Centred around Mondi’s new claim – “in touch every day” – visitors will be able to see firsthand how Mondi touches millions of lives every day through its broad range of products in use across the world. The international audience can look forward to an extensive selection of announcements including:
Seeing the first white kraft paper samples from Mondi’s investment in its Št?tí plant in the Czech Republic (PM7)
Touch Bag, an embossed industrial bag solution for improved branding and piracy protection
ColdSealPack®, a self-sealing packaging solution
PolyWoven Bag next generation, a lightweight and tear-resistant pinch bottom bag for food and non-food applications
SteamPack® for convenient microwaveable packaging
YBBS® Premium Board, an uncoated 100% virgin fibre wood and chlorine free solution for packaging applications such as high-value folding boxes or cupstock
Miprotex, a tailor-made barrier to prevent the migration of mineral oil, available as barrier material or corrugated packaging
One of the centrepieces of Mondi’s 400 square meter booth will be a striking 5 meter giraffe. It will be made from corrugated material and visitors will be able to walk up to the booth’s first floor to see the giraffe’s head while learning more about Mondi and our strategic partnership with WWF – one of the world’s largest conservation organisations.
“Mondi keeps its eyes on what’s happening in the market so that we always offer our customers the best technologies and raw materials to meet highest standards,” comments Albert Klinkhammer, director of marketing and vommunication, Mondi Europe & International. “This is the first Interpack since the 2012 acquisitions of Nordenia and two Duropack plants. We are excited at the prospect of showcasing our extended portfolio to new and existing customers whilst also finding smarter ways to help our partners to improve their business.”
At Interpack, Mondi will showcase its full spectrum of packaging and paper solutions from flexible packaging solutions to printed films and laminates, kraft paper, paper-based industrial bags, containerboard, corrugated packaging and extrusion coating solutions.
As members of the SAVE FOOD initiative, Mondi will also be present at this year’s Innovationparc Packaging. “We joined this initiative because of its goal to ensure that food is packaged properly from the field to the market.
We see our purpose as creating long-term value for stakeholders by transforming raw materials into innovative product solutions that meet customer needs in a responsible, cost-effective and sustainable way,” says Klinkhammer.
Mondi’s commitment to providing the best technologies to meet customers’ needs has earned two WorldStar Awards from the World Packaging Organization. The awards will be presented during Interpack. The first is for our corrugated packaging solution developed for Schneider Electric. An outer box and inner components hold products in place and eliminate the need for foam or plastic packing materials. This resulted in a packaging solution that is lighter in weight, fully recyclable, and adaptable to products of different sizes.
The second award is for the development of a packaging solution for the Royco Packet Soup range. In partnership with Afripack Consumer Flexibles Mondi Extrusion Coatings developed a non-foil, co-extruded paper laminate that fulfils required needs like high printability, high shelf life, reduced carbon footprint and optimum protection of the ingredients from the outside.
