The packaging has moved from a mixed, triple-ply nylon laminate to a fully recyclable polyethylene (PE) monolaminate structure with built-in barrier properties.

Denise Mathieson, senior packaging manager at Tesco, says: "We’re really excited to have worked with Coveris on this new material, it is yet another step closer to realising our ambition of single polymer packaging which is much easier to recycle.”

Mark Robinson, Coveris’ UK flexibles technical sales manager, adds: “To have delivered a first-to-market, fully recyclable monolaminate for cheese is a real win for us and a game changer for the whole industry. 

"Once again, we’ve proven our capabilities in developing new sustainable performance films and if we can do this for as technically complex a product as this, then we look forward to the next challenge”.
