Interesting facts about the packaging of Holle Pouches

The Holle Pouchy range: the spill-proof snack is not only perfect  for young and old, it also comes in a  convenient pouch that meets the Holle high standard of product quality and environmental responsibility.

Our pouches are lightweight and break-proof. They are also ideal for small hands to grab ­and eat when out and about. They offer a healthy portion of fruit and vegetables – anywhere, anytime. The packaging consists of 4 thin layers (polyethylene terephthalate/aluminium/polyamide/polyethylene) and is structured in a way that preserves the superb quality of the purée even uncooled. All layers are free from bisphenol A. The aluminium layer guarantees high product safety by improving the barrier properties that protect against water vapour, oxygen and light. There is no direct contact between the aluminium layer and the purée. The swallow-proof closing cap consists of polyethylene and therefore can be directly recycled.

Pouches are more eco-friendly than glass.

Compared to glass, pouches cut down on CO2 emissions by 37% and save 27% more fossil resources, according to the IFEU Institute’s Europe-wide life cycle assessment of packaging for long-life foods.

   

Pouches require very little packaging material per gram of content. The “Deutsche Verpackungsverordnung” (German packaging regulation) therefore rates pouches as an “ecologically beneficial solution for disposable drink packaging”. Due to their low weight and low packaging volumes, they offer a whole range of advantages when it comes to transportation.  A truck can transport a lot more pouches than other packaging options, such as glass jars. A lot less transport space is required per ton of product, and a lot less fuel is consumed. Therefore, pouches are the ecological alternative.
