The Australian Pouch Company is working with Gualapack to offer a comprehensive range of sustainable flexible packaging solutions.

Gualapack’s CheerNEXT is a bio-based, alu-free pouch that can contain up to 80% of bio-sourced raw materials. It is suitable for cold filling, ambient filling and hot filling processes and can sustain a pasteurisation treatment.

Safta’s LamiNEXT is also made of bio-based raw materials derived from renewable sources, according to ASTM D6400 standard. Bioplastic raw materials are based on plants rich in carbohydrate such as grains or sugar beets/cane. All applications using PE are feasible as LamiNEXT bio-based, PP in development for retort application.

The compostable and biodegradable LamiNEXT breaks down naturally into organic components in 12 weeks under composting conditions without releasing toxic heavy metals, in compliance with EN13432.

Gualapack can produce compostable or bio-based Stand-Up Pouches from Safta’s LamiNEXT laminates.
