Mondi takes another slice of sustainable packaging by teaming up with Scan Sverige

  • Mondi partners with Scan Sverige to provide packaging for its Pärsons brand's ham, sausage and plant-based slices.
  • Mondi's WalletPack is designed for recycling, successfully replacing previously used multi-material non-recyclable plastic packaging.
  • The new PP-based mono-material packaging has a high oxygen barrier, keeping the product fresh on shelf.

14 May 2024 – Mondi, a global leader in sustainable packaging and paper, has collaborated with Scan Sverige to create a polypropylene (PP) based mono-material packaging, that is designed for recycling. Scan Sverige, having over a century experience in responsible Swedish food production, uses Mondi’s WalletPack for its Pärsons brand’s range of sliced ham, salami, and plant-based products, starting from March 2024.

Mondi’s WalletPack is a PP based solution which is designed for recyclability. This packaging is purposefully developed with recycling in mind, aligning with our customer’s goals, and NPA's missions as an approved producer responsibility organisation dedicated to advancing circular and traceable material recycling. WalletPack can be effectively sorted by Site Zero, Europe’s largest and most advanced plastic recycling facility located in Sweden and is thereby contributing to a circular economy. It replaces the previous solution, which was an unrecyclable multi-material pack that consisted of PET-PE and PA-PE laminates.

Featuring a top and bottom film, Mondi’s WalletPack has an easy peel mechanism ensuring consumer convenience. Created with a protective high oxygen barrier for a longer shelf-life in combination with inside print, it also offers good printability to communicate the brand and product messages.

Helene Brynell, Regional Sales Nordic, Consumer Flexibles, Mondi says: “It was a pleasure working with Scan Sverige, bringing over a century of experience in responsible Swedish food production to the table. The team closely oversees the full farm to fork value chain, which seamlessly aligns with our values. Throughout the trial process, we were both focusing on the same clear goals: to best protect the food while developing packaging that could deliver from a sustainability standpoint, being designed for recycling.”

Einar Ahlstrom, Material specialist at NPA explains: “Multi-layer laminates, such as PET/PE and PA/PE, are commonly used in diverse flexible plastic packaging, limiting the potential for material recycling. To enhance and facilitate more efficient material recycling, there is a need to shift towards using mono-material in plastic packaging. It is encouraging to note that Scan Sverige has introduced a novel packaging solution for Pärsons, in collaboration with Mondi. This alternative not only replaces traditional multi-layer laminates but also proves to be more conducive to material recycling.”

Scan Sverige and Mondi initiated discussions about the recently introduced mono-material packaging two years ago. With clearly defined goals set out from the start, the two organisations collaborated closely throughout the process to efficiently and thoroughly develop the WalletPack solution for Pärsons.

Eva Tiedman, Category Manager Scan Sverige adds: “The Mondi WalletPacks will be used on a wide range of sliced products for Pärsons’ cold cuts. We knew Mondi was the right partner to achieve our goals and are delighted to see the new solution running efficiently on our existing machinery. Our objective was to follow a forward-thinking approach to packaging sustainability as we are investing in getting 100% recyclable packaging by the end of 2025 and working hard to change to recyclable mono-materials.”
