SOFRUPAK CHOOSES NATUREFLEX

Polish soft fruit packaging producer, SoFruPak, has chosen Futamura’s renewable and compostable NatureFlex™ films for the windows in its soft fruit tray lids.

NatureFlex™ is made from responsibly managed wood pulp and is certified by TÜV Austria OK Compost for home composting while meeting the EN13432 EU standards for industrial composting.

SoFruPak has partnered with Marex, to develop an innovative Cellulose Coated Cardboard Technology (CCC) that combines sheets of corrugated cardboard with Futamura’s compostable NatureFlex™ film. Thanks to the use of this compostable cellulose film, the entire packaging is biodegradable and plastic-free, and is the first of its kind on the fresh fruit and vegetable market. The innovative packaging allows retailers to meet the growing consumer demand for biodegradable and compostable alternatives to conventional plastic packaging.

SoFruPak recently showcased their plastic free packaging at ExpoSe 2019 in Karlsruhe, Germany, where they received the Innovation Award for their SoFruMiniPak® EcoView packaging, which has also been nominated for a prestigious Fruit Logistica Innovation Award in 2020, the company announced.
