Up to now, most multilayer multimaterial laminates and pouches on the market have not been suitable for collection, sorting or recycling.

In this framework, Gualapack brings on a breakthrough alternative: Pouch5®, a recyclable, mono-material PP stand-up pouch.

100% mono-material, cap included

All the elements of our recyclable stand up pouches, cap and spout included, are made of the same material, polypropylene, which is correctly identified for recycling within the PP plastic waste stream.
Gualapack portfolio of recyclable solutions will enable customers to meet the goals of the EU Plastics Strategy and national laws deriving therefrom, whereby all packaging placed onto the EU market by 2030 shall be either reusable, recyclable, or compostable.

A top performer in recyclability

Pouch5® has obtained the widely recognized HTP_CYCLOS certification, with an impressive 98% recyclability score.

Furthermore Pouch5® was also certified for its recyclability by Interseroh Dienstleistungs-GmbH, an environmental service provider. With a score of 20 out of 20, our mono-material pouches are considered very well-designed for recycling.

Aluminium-free and high barrier

As a monomaterial, Pouch5® is designed without aluminum and is the first pre-made spouted pouch to be recyclable. At the same time, it offers a very high oxygen and water vapor barrier, for shelf stable products that undergo hot-filling and pasteurization such as Babyfood and Fruit Compote, as well as for less demanding cold-filled or dairy applications.

EU and FDA Approved

Baby food pouches and many more

This  mono-material pouches has already been chosen by important baby food brands around the world.

Jufico, a leading German baby-food producer, aware that German consumers are very well-informed and sensitive to environmentally friendly packaging, has captured the momentum. They chose Pouch5®, the Gualapack fully recyclable pouches, for 5 new references of its Fruchtbar fruit juices.

Our monomaterial standup pouches have also been adopted by two Nestlé baby food brands across the globe: Gerber in the USA and Piltti in Finland.

Pouch5® offers a perfect sustainable packaging solution not only for food, such as drinks and juices, fruit puree and yoghurt, but also for beauty and personal care products – as for example soap refills or face masks – and home care, like detergents.
