Constantia launches new twist-wraps confectionary in repulpable, wax-free paper

13 June 2024

Constantia is targeting recyclability for confectionary packaging with new EcoTwistPaper, a twist wrap paper solution free from wax or polymer elements.

EcoTwistPaper is designed without wax, polymeric coatings, or other components that would impact its recyclability in the paper waste stream. Since it is free of plastic coatings, it is not held to the requirements of the Single-Use Plastics Directive.

Reportedly, advanced mechanical treatments are applied to soften the paper and enhance its wrapping properties. It is intended to comply with existing machinery, visually appeal to consumers, protect the products it is applied to, and be recycled at end-of-life.

The Confederation of European Paper Industries (CEPI) has conducted repulpability testing and awarded EcoTwistPaper a score of 90/100 for its printed material.

The solution comes in response to increasing consumer and regulator demand for sustainability-minded packaging solutions.

“Driven by our dedication to sustainability and addressing the demands of the confectionary industry, we developed EcoTwistPaper,” explained Marc Rademacher, executive vice president Consumer Commercial at Constantia Flexibles. “This innovation represents a significant advancement within the confectionery packaging sector.”
