IQ GRASS+ PACKAGING: launch of a unique grass paper for premium packaging

Partnering with customers for innovation is one of Mondi’s four strategic value drivers. One of the latest innovations using alternative raw materials is IQ GRASS+ PACKAGING which uses fast-growing grass as a fibre source, and was developed in close collaboration with customers.

The combination of 30 percent grass fibre and 70 percent fresh fibre from sustainable resources gives this new niche product a natural and unique look and feel making it suitable for premium shopping bags as well as liners for high-quality corrugated and solid board packaging.

IQ GRASS+ PACKAGING has a high tear strength compared to typical uncoated fine paper products, is optimised for flexo printing, used for various types of packaging, and has a food safety certification for dry/non-fatty foods. The new material is available to order across Europe from September 2020 onwards. First projects have already been successfully implemented with customers.
