Together with Lidl Sweden, Trioworld is launching the first post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic film, approved for frozen food packaging when Lidl introduces the innovative solution with their cinnamon buns and cardamum buns in Sweden this week.

Trioworld has developed a groundbreaking new multi-layer Loop packaging that revolutionizes food packaging. The project was initiated together with RISE and Lidl Future Initiatives (LFI) and the mission was to develop a recyclable food contact material containing PCR.

“We are extremely proud that we are the first retailer to launch a food packaging containing recycled plastic,” says Gabriella Goldman, Brand- CSR and Communications director, Lidl Sweden.

Trioworld’s solution is powered by an innovative 5-layer concept that has met all the required tests and simulations as required by the European Regulations for Food Contact Material. The packaging is made of 30% recycled PCR and is 100% recyclable. It will see its first commercial use as a packaging solution for Lidl Sweden’s cinnamon buns and cardamom buns, hitting the shelves this week.

“With this innovation we can confidently say we’re a leading manufacturer within sustainable flexible packaging. Trioworld’s multi-layer Loop offers Lidl a packaging solution that is not only fully recyclable but made from 30% post-consumer recycled material and reduces their carbon footprint”, says Evert Paardekooper, Division President Consumer Packaging at Trioworld.

Trioworld has a target to increase the percentage of recycled plastics in their products to 50% by 2030 and is now continuing to develop thinner multi-layer Loop film for more food application areas.
