The better products are protected, or in the case of food, the longer it can be stored, the more effectively resources can be preserved. It’s why we develop innovative packaging solutions and work with our customers to create sustainable concepts.
Using building blocks such as: reduced material consumption, recyclable solutions, recycled or renewable based materials, and new technologies and business models we are developing sustainable packaging concepts and reducing our environmental impact. To us, implementing a life-cycle approach is essential to being a reliable partner.

Material & Thickness Reduction
By selecting the most appropriate combination and mixture of raw materials we develop films that provide the best possible packaging solution whilst minimizing environmental impact. We constantly strive to develop solutions that enable significant down gauging whilst offering best product protection.
Thin and High Performance
Material Selection + New Technology = Thinner Film Solutions
SC PLUS, a super thin and sustainable co-extrusion film, which uses up to 25% less resources than conventional films, enabling a reduction of CO2 emissions in the region of 40%.
- Securing product safety
- Perfect transparency and brilliant gloss
- High puncture resistance
- Medium to extra high barrier
Heavyweight Performance in a Lightweight Package
At a time when sustainability and the reduction of food waste remain at the forefront of the consumer mindset, Wipak has expanded its range of Bialon and Biaxer laminates, increasing suitability for use in demanding applications of mozzarella packaging, where the seal strength and the durability of the pack are of paramount importance.
The new laminates, BIALON 40 WHITE OFP, BIALON 55 WHITE OFP and BIAXER 55 WHITE OFP, can reduce the overall thickness of a pack by up to 25 μm, whilst still offering great product protection. They have a 20% higher puncture resistance and can be used to achieve a higher seal strength than comparable films.
“The new laminates overcome technical challenges specific to mozzarella packaging and perform exceptionally well on packaging machines to maximize output,” said Davide Zinzalini, Business Development Manager at Wipak Bordi. “As mozzarella balls are generally packaged in liquid on a high-speed VFFS line, sealing at high speed is of critical importance. Our new BIALON and BIAXER OFP range is the perfect fit, with the added benefit of excellent seal tightness and drop resistance to ensure optimum product safety.”
From Waste to Value
When developing new packaging materials early consideration must be given to the ease with which it can be recycled.
Multilayer composite films are extremely resource efficient as they combine low material usage with high durability. Many products require a combination of excellent tear and puncture resistance as well as high barrier capability. To ensure the best level of product protection, recyclable packaging solutions must offer all of these properties. With the publication of the new EU Plastics Strategy, the European Union describes its ambitious vision stating that “by 2030, all plastics packaging placed on the EU market is either reusable or can be recyclable in a cost-effective manner”, ensuring that recycling will be a major topic for the foreseeable future.
Wipak aims to avoid product wastage through packaging concepts tailored to each customer’s requirements, whilst ensuring the efficiency of the customer’s production process isn't compromised through the use of new and unfamiliar recyclable materials.
This is where Wipak’s recyclable solutions come in.
WALOFILM (BOPP or BOPP/BOPP) solutions for confectionary and BIAXOP (BOPP/PE) solutions, well known as a lidding film for bakery and processed meat, have been part of Wipak’s product portfolio for many years. They can be sorted and recycled with PP or Polyolefin fractions by state-to-the-art technology.
Polyolefin or pure PE-, PP- or PET-based solutions that don’t compromise product shelf life or safety, for a wide range of applications.
