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.
