Innovia Films high barrier compostable material, NatureFlex™NK, has been selected by a Dutch company, Amigos International, to wrap its new range of dark, Fair Trade, organic chocolate from Ecuador - Ananda. NatureFlex™ NK was launched in 2008 and offers not only biodegradability and compostability, but also a moisture barrier approaching that of co-extruded OPP. This means it has the best moisture barrier of any biopolymer film currently available, which has been achieved through Innovia Films’ unique coating technology. Another advantage in using NatureFlex™ NK film is the increased shelf life it can give the product, keeping it in tip-top condition for longer. Packaging Knowhow advised Amigos International on choice of film and Hapece Flexible Packaging, a specialist in small runs, converted and printed the NatureFlex™ NK in this application. Supplying Amigos International with NatureFlex™ NK to package their Ananda Chocolate is a win-win-win situation, as the transparent film offers high barrier, increases product shelf life and is certified compostable
