Burns trusted us to provide packaging to replace their paper bags with an alternative solution that would be more sustainable – mono material laminated structure, as opposed to paper laminated or coated with plastic – and that would be stronger to withstand the different product weights across all ranges and protect the high value products during transit to the new export markets that the business was targeting. Burns bags comes in 2Kg, 5Kg, 6Kg, 12Kg and very soon in a 14Kg size.
Printed in Rotogravure process with a matt finish, as well as having a smoother weave pattern than old-fashioned value woven bags so it is barely visible to the eye and gives that great natural look, premium products with premium label don’t look out of place in these new BOPP bags. Without the need of stitching them at the top and with the addition of a block bottom base, the bags also provide the same great shelf appeal as non-recyclable plastic bags.
Burns new designs completely stand out with great photographic images and this proves that moving in the right direction with recyclable woven bags doesn’t mean compromising on quality and it can be just the perfect retail-friendly choice for any businesses wanting to trade online and expand overseas.
“Due to the structure of our previous paper packaging not being recyclable and the requirements to ensure our products are kept as fresh as possible, the improved barrier properties along with recyclability allow Burns to target eliminating the single use of plastic packaging and achieve a sustainable circular economy. The tighter weave polywoven fabric and new sealing innovation increase puncture resistance making for less damage and wastage to stock. All without compromising the super-premium shelf appeal of Burns pet food. Luke and his team have supported us throughout the whole process and continue to do so, ensuring our customers receive the quality products their pets deserve.”
