Packaging for whom?
Whether you are a manufacturer, cardboard maker or food industry professional, the SuniBarrier range meets the daily problems you are likely to encounter.
Thus, it is perfectly adapted to the needs of :
- Ingredient manufacturers (tea, sweets, etc.),
- Biscuit manufacturers,
- Supermarket chains in the delicatessen, butchery and fish departments,
- Packaging manufacturers (trays, flexible packaging, etc.),
- Printers, packaging designers,
- Cardboard manufacturers.
SuniBarrier committed to preserving nature
Finding a paper that can replace plastic is not a new idea since it is ultimately going back to the very origin of paper, which has always been used to wrap food and organic materials. Guyenne Papier wants to replace plastic with a natural and recyclable product, in line with today’s major ecological challenges.
These papers for packaging thus have barrier properties, without plastic film, and which can be recycled once they are no longer used.
4 years of research to achieve this innovation
Guyenne Papier’s R&D department has always developed and formulated innovative solutions in the packaging sector.
Based in the Dordogne, he has now developed a whole range of papers that are not only barrier to water, grease, vapor but also heat-sealable and more than 95% recyclable, even going beyond the requirements the highest in the EU for recyclability rates.
And to anticipate tomorrow’s health changes, and unlike competing products, Guyenne Papier’s products are without fluorinated resin, without chlorinated derivatives (PVdC), without PVA and without plastic film (without PE – Polyethylene or other PET – Polyethylene Terephthalate).
SuniBarrier is the result of several years of research, industrial trials and partnerships. It is in fact a very precise coating process which makes it possible to improve the properties of traditional paper, to make it a paper for resistant packaging, which has the advantage of retaining the single-material dimension of the paper. Thus, SuniBarrier papers contain no PE, no PVC, no PET or PP (polypropylene). They can be reprocessed without polluting, in paper recycling channels.
The revolution of good resolutions
The AGEC law aims to significantly reduce the use of packaging containing plastic by 2025, and completely eliminate it by 2040.
« Art. L. 541-10-17.-France has set itself the goal of reaching the end of the marketing of single-use plastic packaging by 2040.”
LThe SuniBarrier range thus responds to the problem of companies concerned about their energy production, but also in the long term, in general, to give the industry and agri-food sector the real possibility of complying with the anti-waste environmental law. Moreover, for a company’s brand image, the use of eco-responsible packaging is a real asset and a CSR argument to be valued.
The regulations are thus in line with the paths traced by Guyenne Papier several years ago, through our environmental policy which aims for 100% paper.
