The innovation consists of more than 95% (PP) that can be easily recycled material-based and high thin barrier. The innovative PP bags with a thin high barrier can be identified and sorted out in modern sorting facilities and then be reprocessed into high-purity recyclates. These can then be used to manufacture new products.
The bag’s recyclability has now also been officially confirmed: For the latest PP bag generation, allfo received EU-wide certification from the cyclos-HTP institute in the category "recycling class AAA".
“With the VAC 95+, we’ve hit the nail on the head and are offering an innovative and sustainable solution just at the right time. Because the pressure on food producers and the packaging industry is becoming ever greater. More than ever before, ecological alternatives are being sought. With our VAC 95+, we deliver exactly this alternative that is also expected by consumers at the point of sale” explained Harald Gessinger. The plus in sustainability is visible to everyone – namely via the imprint “100 % recyclable”. So, the recyclability is immediately visible at a glance for every user and consumer. VAC 95+ was developed in the company's own laboratory and application technology centre located in Germany.
The sustainable product protection is as effective as ever. The high barrier properties protect the packed products against water vapour (H2O) and oxygen (O2) and thus ensure a long shelf-life of foodstuffs and other sensitive products. Due to its very good sealability, the VAC 95+ can be used on all common vacuum chamber machines. This makes it the ideal environmentally friendly bag for sensitive foods such as meat, sausage, fish or seafood. But cheese, potatoes, ready-to-eat meals, and vegetables also stay fresh longer in the VAC 95+ and are safely protected from spoilage during transport and on the sales shelves. The hygienic preservation of foodstuffs is ensured by the tight fit of the vacuum bags on the product as well as the stable gas and oxygen barrier.
