HYDRO—global leading aluminum supplier—has demonstrated that aluminum guarantees hermeticity and complete barrier from contamination (air, light, aroma and substances), while it is non-toxic and releases no smell or taste particles. Therefore, OUR ALUMINUM-BASED FLEXIBLE PACKAGING PRESERVES MORE RESOURCES THAN IT CONSUMES, because:
• It safeguards product quality, extends product shelf life and helps preserve food, beverages and pharmaceuticals. Thus reducing the environmental foot print of their additional production and food wastage.
• Given its lower weight versus other packaging types, it results in less energy consumption because it: 1) optimizes transportation needs and 2) requires no refrigeration due to its hermeticity
• It saves consumers time in cooking and preparing meals, by enabling consumption of fully-prepared meals, canned and frozen foods.
According to Hans-Jürgen Schmidt, Product Ecology Director, “wasted foods have a negative ecological impact ten times higher than that of packaging residues.”
