The nu company partners with Fuamura on compostable NatureFlex packaging for vegan chocolate
The German food startup company chose NatureFlex after looking for an alternative to conventional plastic packaging.
“Not so long ago sustainable packaging was seen as a utopian dream, now it is a very real option for ethical producers,” Thomas Stoffels, co-founder, the nu company.
“We chose NatureFlex because of its sustainable credentials, but also its technical performance. You don’t need to compromise product protection for sustainability.”
NatureFlex compostable cellulose films are made from responsibly sourced wood pulp and certified according to EN13432 for Industrial Composting and TÜV Austria OK Compost Home for home composting.
The film has a high barrier against gases, moisture and oils, while offering renewability and an end of life option that diverts waste from landfill.
The second range uses a combination of printed paper, laminated to NatureFlex, which is heat-sealable and high barrier.
Joachim Janz, regional sales manager (Germany & Denmark), Futamura said it was delighted the nu company had chosen NatureFlex for its new range of nucao.
“Our product matches the ethical ethos of their brand, whilst protecting their product integrity,” he added.
