Innovia Films’ transparent, compostable cellulose-based material, NatureFlex NVS, has been chosen by a consortium of three Dutch exporters, to pack their range of flower bulbs.
This pouch pack is a tri-part lamination construction of NatureFlex NVS to paper and PLA and was developed by Assen-based converters, Hapece Flexible Packaging.
The three Dutch exporters who have joined forces on this project are Florex, Kapiteyn and Mantel Holland. They have set up a sub-brand for this range We Pack Nature which is underpinned by the old Dutch saying “A better environment begins at home”.
NatureFlex films are certified to meet the European EN13432, American ASTM D6400 and Australian AS4736 standards for compostable packaging. The wood-pulp is sourced from managed plantations from referenced suppliers operating Good Forestry principals (FSC or equivalent). NatureFlex™ films typically have a renewable biobased content of some 95% by weight of material according to ASTM D6866.
