Companies partner for first compostable confectionery packaging

A team of companies – Innovia Films, BASF and Flint Group, and German flexo printing association DFTA – has partnered to produce a compostable confectionary wrapper. The packaging is based on a layout from Kalfany Süße Werbung. 

BASF provided the newly developed and fully compostable lamination adhesive Epotal Eco which is certified by Din Certco. Also compostable are the NatureFlex lamination films supplied by Innovia Films for the confectionery bags and wrappers. 

The printing took place at DFTA’s technology center in Stuttgart, using printing inks and plates from Flint Group. The flexo printing plate nyloflex ACE Digital was used in the process, which is particularly suited to the printing of flexible and aseptic packaging. 

The printing ink FlexiPrint MV used for the project is heavy metal-free and also suitable for composting. High color strength and excellent gloss can be achieved with this ink system that is free of TAA and phthalates. 

The new confectionery packaging has been distributed at various exhibitions and events.
