Taghleef as Finalist for Packaging Europe’s Sustainability Awards

Taghleef Industries is a finalist for the category Recyclable Packaging (Pre-Commercialized)
at The Sustainability Awards 2022, the world’s most prestigious competition for sustainable
packaging innovation organized by Packaging Europe, with a BOPP, high barrier 4-side sealed
sachet developed in collaboration with Gerosa Group.

The packaging solution proposed aims to replace multi-material structures made of
PET/Alu/PE or PET/metPET/PE in applications such as dry powder products or dressing sauces.

The innovative structure has important advantages in terms of recyclability and unit weight
reduction, providing good performances in terms of product protection, thanks to the use of
EXTENDO® XZMX ultra-high barrier film. Furthermore, the packaging offers performing sealing
properties and tear propagation for convenient packaging opening. The BOPP structure is
designed to meet Minimum Recyclability Criteria which is part of the German Packaging Law
VerpackG (Verpackungsgesetz – Packaging Act)

The solution developed by Taghleef Industries and Gerosa Group was selected from 360
submissions from across the global packaging value chain by an expert jury of leading brand
owners and retailers, sustainability organizations, waste management, universities, and industry
experts. Each year, the Sustainability Awards adapt to changes in the sustainable innovation
landscape and see more and more partnerships involved, evaluating entries from global startups
and brands with the same carefully considered criteria.
