Mondi Coatings and Consumer Packaging will present its latest petfood packaging products as the exclusive event partner of the Global Pouch Forum in June.
At Global Pouch Forum, June 11-13, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA, Mondi will present its pre-made stand-up pouches, reclosable plastic bags and paper-based bag solutions.
“The growing demands of the petfood and convenience food market have triggered several innovations in packaging in recent years. We are proud to present our new product developments, such as the sophisticated, retortable anti-staining pouch and the convenient, single-serve pouch to the attendees of the forum and the US market,” said Stefan Gutheil, managing director. “Stand-up pouches are lightweight, can be transported cost-efficiently and are easier for customers to carry home. Compared to alternative packaging materials, flexible stand-up pouches have approximately 75 oercent less packaging and shipping weight.”
