Mondi illustrates via virtual reality how its products touch millions of lives, every day
Vienna, 14 September 2017 - Mondi, the international packaging and paper Group, will show at this year's PACK EXPO trade fair how its packaging solutions are fulfilling customer requirements in the North American market while shaping industry and consumer trends.
Albert Klinkhammer, Mondi Group Marketing Director, says, 'Our team is excited to be at PACK EXPO and looks forward to getting in touch with existing and potential customers in this market. Mondi has long been a well-known brand in Europe, and customers in North America will discover we offer more than they expect, such as access to vast resources, know-how and expertise across the entire Mondi Group.'
Mondi's booth will offer a virtual reality experience to highlight some of its innovative solutions and show how they are used by consumers around the world. Visitors are invited to broaden their knowledge about the range of solutions Mondi offers customers by finding 11 Mondi packaging products hidden in a virtual apartment.
These are just a few of the solutions that Mondi will feature at the PACK EXPO Las Vegas, starting with two innovations presented for the first time at a fair in North America:
Water Soluble Film recently celebrated its world premiere and offers a smart, convenient and biodegradable solution for packing and easy dosing of powders, tabs and granulates. It is a more environmentally-friendly solution compared to other packaging as it helps reduce waste. Whether ready-to-use doses of household dishwasher or laundry detergents, or chemicals for industrial applications, Mondi water soluble film provides excellent barrier properties to protect the product and the end-user, making it safe and easy to use.
SKOG for Food, which is also premiering in North America, is Mondi's newest packaging for food that combines FSC®-certified kraft paper with proprietary extrusion coating technology. This combination provides a heat-sealable package with the necessary barrier for food freshness and is perfectly fitted to run on form-fill-seal machinery.
Peel Pak is a unique bag for packaging dry dairy and related food products suitable for a clean room environment. It's a 'bag in a bag': the inner polyethylene bag is heat sealed and can be completely separated from the outer paper plies or glued to meet customer requirements. To assist in product de-aeration prior to palletizing, the polyethylene bag includes optional venting methods depending on the ply used. Filling can also be done vent-free for nitro-flush applications. Food safety is a focus for Mondi: all 10 industrial bag plants in North America will be SQF (Safe Quality Food) certified by the end of 2017.
CustoMYzed FlexziBox® is part of Mondi's custoMYzed line of consumer packaging that creates every package with unique customer challenges in mind. It offers defined options for premium printing, packaging design, and closing features that allow for product differentiation while optimizing production performance. It is suitable for a variety of consumer applications including food and pet food.
Visit Mondi in Lower South Hall, Booth S-6715 at PACK EXPO Las Vegas, September 25-27. Mondi's team of experts looks forward to welcoming you and helping you discover how Mondi's products touch millions of lives, every day.
