“By reducing the plastic material with approximately 30%, compared to existing packaging, this is by far the lightest packaging in its category on the market today. Emsense is a game-changer for our customers when it comes to them reaching their sustainability goals”, says Richard Johansson, Marketing and Sales Manager at Emballator Lagan Plast.

Besides the lighter weight, the new container has increased the impact resistance, cold resistance, and has a lower environmental impact in the whole manufacturing process including transport.

The first two sizes in the Emsense family are a 485 mL packaging optimized for 400 g, and a 245 mL optimized for 200 g, for sauce or salad products, but Emsense is suitable for all types of food.


PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO (Sept. 27-29, Las Vegas Convention Center) will reunite the packaging and processing community. With over 1400 exhibitors, no other event in 2021 will bring together a more comprehensive gathering of suppliers offering new products, technologies and solutions. Attendee registration is now open.


“The first two products that is launched in the series will enable a saving of fossil-based plastic with 102,34 tons compared to previous products. Emsense is also made of mono material which makes it easy to recycle and 100% recyclable”, says Magnus Gustafsson, R&D Manager at Emballator Lagan Plast.

The new product has been developed in collaboration between Emballator Lagan Plast and Emballator Innovation Center.

“We are proud of creating a low weight package for every customer with targets of less plastic used, this can help them reach their sustainability targets. We have not reduced the content in this packaging, we have optimized the package for its need of volume. Our project aimed to launch the lightest plastic package for its use in the market today”, says Mats Jeppsson, Innovation Manager at Emballator Innovation Center.
