Jufico, a leading German baby-food producer, has launched its organic brand FruchtBar in fully recyclable Monomaterial pouches without Aluminium (Pouch5) into the German market. Pouch5 was developed by Gualapack, a leader of premade spouted pouches, and is the first pre-made spouted pouch available in high barrier recyclable mono-material. The five new references hit supermarket shelves in May 2020.

Gualapack Pouch5 is available in two versions: for hot-filled and pasteurised shelf stable products, and for cold filling/dairy applications. Pouch5 provides product protection equivalent to conventional pouches thanks to its high oxygen and water vapour barrier.

In Germany, separate collection and recycling infrastructure of flexible packaging are among the best in the world. Jufico, under the brand FruchtBar, has captured the momentum and the needs of the market in terms of circular economy, spearheading the recyclable revolution with Pouch5.

Pouch5 is certified by Interseroh Dienstleistungs for its recyclability. Interseroh’s highly scientific criteria for testing a wide variety of packaging have been developed together with bifa environmental and Fraunhofer IVV institutes. With a score of 20 out of 20, Pouch5 achieves the best possible rating and is proven “very good” for recyclability.

In recent years Gualapack has developed a vast portfolio of sustainable solutions to reduce the footprint of packaging. Thanks to the vertical integration of technologies such as extrusion, lamination, printing, pouch making, injection moulding and filling equipment, Gualapack can offer proven and market-ready packaging solutions that provide effective answers to the industry, the environment, consumers and legislators. Pouch5 was recently adopted by Nestle (Gerber) in the USA and Nestle (Piltti) in Finland.
