Special liquorice deserves special packaging
Today, the liquorice sticks "Ærøstang" in the flavours liquorice, chocolate, raspberry and pineapple-coconut are packed in barrier paper from Mitsubishi HiTec Paper: barricote BAG WG 87. Not only does it offer optimal barriers against water vapour and fat (KIT Level 12), which is essential for a good shelf life of the liquorice, but it is also heat-sealable and sustainable.
Paper packaging in demand"For our new liquorice sticks, I was particularly keen to find packaging made of paper that met our high requirements for product protection, processability and printability. I wanted to move away from plastic towards more sustainable packaging for our honest liquorice," says Claus Hattesen. "In close cooperation with our printer Print2Pack and Mitsubishi, and after changing the forming shoulder of our packaging machine, we were able to successfully realise this challenging project."
"The sustainability of our barricote BAG WG, which can be recycled in the waste paper cycle, with its water-based barriers was just as important as the good printability with HP Indigo. Because Claus Hattesen pays close attention to the colours and print quality of the packaging," adds Michael Kater, Sales Manager Barrier Papers at Mitsubishi HiTec Paper.www.barricote.com
