For the second consecutive year, Taghleef Industries
attended the CFIA (Agro-Food Industry Supplier
Fair) which was held March 8-10 in Rennes, France.
This growing event showcases innovations in food
processing and everything associated with it, not
the least of which is packaging. The CFIA provided
an opportunity to meet key people in the Agro-Food
business which is the first step to understanding
their needs and trends. It also provided a forum to
discuss with them the sensitive matter of protection
against mineral oils and aromas.
The attendees discovered that
Ti
has more than
one solution with EXTENDO® barrier films as well
as NATIVIA® compostable BoPLA films, and were
interested in learning
more.
The
positive
feedback received and
the clear interest of
attendees convinced
Ti
that this exhibition is
a value added tool for
understanding
more
about the agro industry
and for promoting
Ti
’s
range of products.

SLU, Spain,
the European Graphic Arts market leader in BoPP films with
the DERPROSA™ brand, today announced DRUPA 2016 as the most successful
event ever attended. The range of films presented, introducing unique Black
SoFT TOUcH®, Gold SoFT TOUcH® and LUMINESCENCE® proved to be one of the
most popular exhibits during the show, attracting an unprecedented number of
visitors during the 11-day event.
A new range of Taghleef Industries label films (Over-Laminating, Self
Adhesive, In-Mold and Wrap Around) with the most impressive specialty films
were presented: Anti-Scratch, Antibacterial, Nativia (PLA) and SoFT TOUcH®.
At the end of March, the French Ministry of
Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy
published a decree which bans single-use plastic
bags beginning July 1, 2016, with similar plastic
bags for fruit, vegetables, fish and delicatessen
goods to be banned starting January 1, 2017.
Single-use plastic bags thinner than 50 microns
will have to meet the requirements of the French
standard for home composting and contain at
least 30% of biobased materials. The minimum
biobased content will progressively increase
to 40% in 2018, 50% in 2020 and 60% in 2025.
Furthermore, plastic packaging for commercial
direct mailers will have to be biodegradable/
compostable in home composting from 2017 on. In
2020, the ban will extend to disposable or single-
use plastic tableware (plates, cups and cutlery)
unless it is home-compostable or made in part of
biobased plastics.
