Answering the growing market demand for sustainable and recyclable packaging solutions, Coveris recently extended its block bottom bag range with monomaterial paper. Offering a premium look and feel on shelf and easy recycling in existing paper streams, the new bags help reduce overall packaging waste.

“At Coveris we built our entire sustainability strategy around the vision of No Waste as we believe that fighting waste in all its forms is the driving force of a more sustainable future. With our new block bottom bags, we want to emphasise the need for recyclable, convenient and premium-looking paper solutions”, summarised Melinda Bonamour (pictured), Market Development Director Paper Flexibles at Coveris. 

Enhanced recyclability with boosted shelf appearance 

The new pre-made bags are 100% paper-based and fully recyclable while still offering strong product protection. The new material received an international certificate issued by Interseroh+ Recycling Alliance and was tested at the Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging, which validates its recyclability in existing paper streams. Easy to adapt to existing packing lines for our customers, Coveris' block bottom bags are available in a wide range of sizes, up to 4kg, and for various contents and applications. They immediately catch customers’ attention on shelf thanks to the available finishing options including hot foil embossing, high gloss or matt finish, metallisation and transparent windows. 

“As a result, they offer an attractive alternative for premium, long shelf life and ambient products. These pre-made monomaterial paper bags answer food brands’ demand for effective, attractive packaging with a sustainable look and feel”, summarised Melinda Bonamour.
