Huhtamaki PPL: Global impact, locally manufactured
Huhtamaki PPL
The Wild Nature paper-based zipper pouch was created for one of the premium sellers of instant freeze coffee in Russia, the Hors Group. The customer wanted an organic look for the pouch along with providing rich and premium cues. This was achieved with a paper-based packaging solution. New technology to integrate the paper-based laminate with the zipper, without cracking the foil provided an industry breakthrough.
For Colonel & Co. nachos with chutney, HPPL developed a peel-able lidding laminate with required barrier to pack the snack. The solution involved modifying the PE recipe to achieve the necessary peel-able force and using a matted film to lend better print appeal.
The customer brief was to develop flexible bags to pack 25kg rice for Ammaas poly bag, provide visual appeal and pass qualify drop test requirements. A normal PET|PET structure would not sustain such a rigorous drop test. Hence, an alternative structure of  PE based side gusseted pouch was developed.
PaperBoat Badam milk is a new concept of milk-based drinks in retort profile pouches. This profile standup-pouch with its slim look is designed to communicate the product’s “health” proposition.  The laminate structure has been specially designed to withstand the retort procedures (up to 120 degree Celsius) at high speeds.
