Neue verantwortungsvolle Verpackungslösungen für Lebensmittel

Sulapac-Paket

Fazer beginning cooperation with Sulapac – The aim is to develop new responsible packaging solutions for foodstuffs

Fazer and Sulapac have begun collaborating, with the aim of researching, developing and testing plastic-free, biodegradable packaging solutions for foodstuffs. The cooperation started in May. It supports Fazer’s strategy and objective of becoming a responsible, modern food company that seeks to reduce the use of plastic with the help of new technologies. Fazer will start by launching a confectionery gift box for Christmas 2018 that uses a Sulapac solution.

Fazer is constantly studying new packaging options and working to reduce the amount of packaging materials – and especially plastic – used in its product packaging. It is impossible to eliminate packaging altogether in the food industry.

Die Verpackung, vorerst inklusive Kunststoffverpackungen, wird benötigt, um die Produkte zu schützen, die Sicherheit von Lebensmitteln zu gewährleisten, die Haltbarkeit zu erhöhen und letztendlich dazu beizutragen, Lebensmittelverschwendung zu reduzieren und Produktinformationen für die Verbraucher bereitzustellen.

“Fazer is actively involved in discussions on recycling and re-use of packaging waste, as well as the development of new kinds of environmentally friendly packaging solutions,”

sagt Nina Elomaa, Corporate Responsibility Director der Fazer Group.

Sulapac Oy is a young Finnish growth company that develops fully biodegradable packaging materials and solutions that contain no microplastics. Sulapac® is an award-winning packaging innovation made from wood chips and natural, biodegradable binders. The wood chips come from forests under sustainable management.

Fazer wants to help to develop the Sulapac® packaging material to the next level, also for food packaging, and to be the first food company using this unique innovation in its packages.

Through this new cooperation, Fazer will support Sulapac’s research and development into food packaging.

“Fazer can offer strong consumer and food expertise to interesting startups. Entrepreneurship is a natural part of Fazer, a company that has scaled up over 126 years from the innovative business idea of a single business owner to the leading producer of food and food services in the Baltic region”,

says Päivi Juolahti, head of Fazer Lab, Fazer’s research and innovation unit.

“Collaborating with Fazer is an excellent opportunity to develop and learn together. It also shows that we can meet extremely demanding quality requirements. We will start with premium products, but the aim is to make Sulapac material available for all consumers around the world”,

sagt Suvi Haimi, CEO und Gründer von Sulapac.

Fazer will den Lebensmittelsektor reformieren und eine umfassendere und transparentere Zusammenarbeit mit Universitäten, Unternehmen in verschiedenen Bereichen und neuen Startups fördern. Ein Ökosystem, das Innovationen hervorbringt, fördert die Erneuerung des Lebensmittelsektors und bietet neuen Unternehmern Möglichkeiten für Wachstum, Zusammenarbeit und Vernetzung.

Premium-Produkte können auch verantwortlich sein

Sulapac’s packaging innovation enables a variety of design solutions along with leading-edge design. Fazer and Sulapac are aiming to create gift packaging for Fazer’s premium products that combine sustainable development with a hint of luxury.

Der derzeitige Plan sieht vor, dass die Verbraucher einen ersten Eindruck von der Zusammenarbeit zwischen Fazer und Sulapac bekommen, wenn Fazer verschiedene Süßwaren in biologisch abbaubaren Verpackungen, die keine Mikroplastik enthalten, auf den Markt bringt.
