The LCA evaluation suggests that the new structure delivers
better performance compared to the previous one.
For their innovation in sustainable packaging, Barilla and
Ti
decided on XZMU in the EXTENDO range, which provides
a robust barrier and boosts the final recyclability of the
package. This high barrier metallized BOPP film provides
outstanding barriers to water vapor and oxygen, as well as
excellent aroma and light barriers. Because of its PP base,
EXTENDO XZMU offers a mono-material solution that’s
ultimately recyclable.
Good for you, good for the planet, good for the bottom line.
The new packaging meets the requirements for non-
recyclable packaging proposals currently under review in
Europe as well as packaging laws set to be enforced at the
beginning of 2019. As a result, potential fines and fees will
be avoided.
The successful collaboration of Barilla and
Ti
brought
about “best-in-class” packaging designed to keep food
fresh and help reduce food waste. Thanks to the mono-
material barrier design, EXTENDO films integrate the
concept of eco-design which is one of the principles of the
circular economy.
Barilla’s mission of “Good for you, good for the planet,” is
inspired by the lifestyle and Mediterranean diet of their
home country, Italy. They aim to bring joy and health to
the table without compromising on quality and, above all,
to respect the planet. Taghleef is proud to have played a
key part toward achieving those goals.
