ALTERNATIVE TO PLASTIC SACKS

See how we eliminated plastic sacks for transporting chocolate in Colombia by offering a paper-based alternative

The Challenge
F&M Chocolates SAS in Colombia produces 1,200 tonnes of chocolate per year which was distributed in unsustainable plastic sacks. The company wanted to move to paper-based packaging however as chocolate is sensitive to oil migration and has a smell, they required packaging with a sufficient barrier to prevent transfer of both.

The Approach
Smurfit Kappa applied their expertise in paper-based solutions for smaller size chocolate snacks to develop an industrial solution. A multi-layer paper sack was developed which allowed chocolate flakes to be easily packed. An easy-opening design makes it simple for industrial customers to use at their sites.

The Result
The new paper-based sack provided the customer with a sustainable solution that eliminated the need for plastic. In addition the new sack is less expensive to produce resulting in cost savings.
