The HydroTec paper pouch is thus kerbside recyclable, giving a low carbon footprint option.
Sourceful partnered with the Sustainable Materials Innovation Hub (SMI Hub), part of the Henry Royce Institute at the University of Manchester.
Michael Shaver. director of SMI, said: “It’s been exciting to use our best-in-class research capabilities to explore a product like Sourceful’s HydroTec Paper Pouch. With accurate and transparent analysis supporting a product like this, businesses can make better-informed decisions about their packaging.”
The water-based barrier in the new pouch can keep products fresh for up to 18 months — making it ideal for products such as pet treats, confectionery and coffee — and custom printing (up to eight colours), custom sizing and a range of formats, shapes and paper types.
James Buckley, Sourceful’s VP of new product development, said: “We’re delighted to finally offer our new HydroTec paper pouches after months of research and testing. It represents a much-needed leap forward for paper-based flexible packaging, and it’ll play a critical role in reducing plastic use for countless businesses.”
