Main areas of application: dry pasta, rice, cookies and other bakery products
Paper and biofilm laminate allowing to package fresh or dry products, and in modified atmosphere. Certified as completely compostable (logo CIC – Consortium of Italian Composters’) albeit using complex composite materials making it suitable for the ordinary automatic packaging machines. It features the mechanical strength/tension resistance compatible with those of the ordinary plastic films while remaining recyclable together with food waste. This innovative flexible packaging is the result of research and experimentation Policarta undertook during the last several years in response to the European Union Directive requiring the prevention of the production of non-recyclable and badly recyclable waste, and the promotion the production of packaging that facilitates recycling.
