Sustainable packaging

Sustainable packaging

Sustainability. Eco-friendly technologies and materials.

All of our products are designed to respond efficiently in packaging processes, thus optimising film, gas, air and energy consumption.
We focus on minimising the amount of packaging required, with the aim of minimising storage and transportation costs, while also having the smallest possible impact on the environment.

There is a marked trend in our sector of requiring minimised packaging, lightweighting, energy efficiency, the use of new materials, recyclability, etc. These trends require us to develop high-tech solutions.

Areas of development:

  • Reduction and minimising of waste and biodegradable materials.
  • Replacing plastics with organic materials.
  • Optimising the cost of packaging through thickness reduction.
  • Traceability and food safety.
  • Minimising the energy consumption of machinery.
  • Customising packaging to improve brand value.
  • Packaging that extends the food's shelf life and reduces waste.

As members of the SAVE FOOD initiative, at ULMA Packaging, we are strongly committed to reducing food waste. SAVE FOOD is a joint initiative of the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), Messe Düsseldorf and Interpack, the leading global trade fair for the packaging and packing industry. The goal is to fight global food waste and loss through a global partnership of the above stakeholders. According to the FAO, one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year - approximately 1.3 billion tonnes — gets lost or wasted: an amount that would be sufficient to meet the world's food needs. Together with its partners from industry, the political sphere and the civil society, SAVE FOOD aims to drive innovations, promote interdisciplinary dialogue and stimulate debates in order to generate solutions, across the entire value chain “from field to fork”.
