Paper-based packaging company Smurfit Kappa has introduced a new Twin Kraft Grease Guard MB12 packaging solution for fast food, as part of its sustainable efforts.
Developed in collaboration with independent Packaging Consultant Juozas Baranauskas, the new sustainable packaging solution is created for Lithuanian fast-food restaurant Fresh Post.
The Twin Kraft Grease Guard MB12 packaging solution is part of Smurfit Kappa’s Better Planet Packaging portfolio, which includes sustainable alternatives to existing single-use plastic solutions.
Smurfit Kappa innovation and development vice president Arco Berkenbosch said: “We work with customers of all sizes to help them realise their sustainability goals and present their products in the best and most sustainable way.
“We were delighted to work with Juozas on the creation of this innovative and sustainable packaging solution for Fresh Post.”
The new Fresh Post food box is produced using Smurfit Kappa’s Twin Kraft Solid Board, a paper-based mono-material suitable for food packaging applications.
The recyclable material is integrated with Smurfit’s MB12 technology to adsorb mineral oils and keep food safe whilst simultaneously protecting aroma and taste.
Smurfit stated that the 100% FSC certified pack is produced in an energy-efficient way with a significant reduction in both electricity and water compared to the previous solution.
Fresh Post founder and CEO Inga Tribuišienė said: “Today we have everything we wanted – responsibility from suppliers and manufacturers, and complete traceability of the packaging down to the smallest detail.
“The whole development has even led to a reduction in costs of packaging and the new material will reduce taxes on packaging which are starting this year.”
Earlier this month, Smurfit Kappa announced an investment of more than $33m for the expansion of its Fortaleza facility in Brazil.
