Emsur Argentina, in collaboration with Coexpan Chile, has developed a removable label for dairy products for one of its key customers, Nestlé Chile.

Nestlé last year announced its commitment that 100% of its containers are recyclable or reusable by 2025.

The new labels are easily peeled from the product, allowing consumers to separate materials more easily for recycling. An added layer in the label means it doesn’t stick or tear when being removed.

The labels can be made as monolayer or duplex, for different market segments such as yogurts, desserts or drinks. The products have been launched in Chile through Nestlé’s Batido brand.

Nestlé has also launched a communication campaign to guide people on how to properly recycle the new packaging.

Thanks to this initiative, Emsur said, approximately 1,200 tons of plastic could be recycled.
Through the project, Emsur, the flexible plastic packaging division of the Lantero Group, together with Coexpan, another Lantero Group division that manufactures rigid packaging, say they are maintaining their commitment to sustainability, in accordance with their circular economy goals.

Emsur, which employs more than 900 people in nine production plants in Spain, France, Poland, Russia, USA, Argentina, Mexico and Brazil, presented the new technology at Latinpack 2018.

Coexpan, the Lantero Group division specializing in the manufacture of rigid plastic sheet and thermoformed products, has 13 production plants in Spain, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, Chile, Brazil and Mexico, and has a production capacity of more than 200,000 tons per year.
