After several years of research and development, we have successfully improved the environmental sustainability of our packaging by developing the first recyclable outer wrapper for the Nonno Nanni Stracchino range!
Our outer wrapper (flow-pack) consisted of a layer of polyamide (better known as nylon) laminated with a layer of polyethylene, so two different plastics that cannot be separated in the treatment plant and therefore cannot be recycled.
We began by researching and testing different materials, then after more than two years, we successfully identified the best material.
In order to guarantee the recyclability of the new material, we turned to an external body, Interzero®. After appropriate analysis, they confirmed the high recyclability of the plastic used in the outer wrapping.
New recyclable outer packaging
The outer packaging is disposed of with plastic waste and will be recycled
The recycled packaging gets a second life, turned into new objects
The inner tray containing the Stracchino is also designed to reduce its environmental impact.
The inner layer made predominantly from recycled PET (rPET) is combined with two outer micro-layers of virgin PET.
New lower environmental impact inner tub
The tub is made out of mainly recycled PET (rPET), used for the inner layer, bonded with two outer microlayers of virgin PET
Using recycled PET reduces the amount of virgin plastic released into the environment and the CO₂ emissions required to produce it
The switch to the new packaging for the Stracchino range will achieve the following improvements in environmental impact compared to the previous packaging, expressed in annual average values:

Award-winning packaging! We won the Best Packaging Award 2023 for the Environment category.
The Best Packaging Award competition is organised every year by the Italian Institute of Packaging. A jury of experts evaluates the entire new packaging development project and rewards the best project according to parameters related to its contribution in terms of innovation, usability and attention to environmental sustainability.
