Silphie packaging for Lidl and Kaufland

PreZero, the environmental division of the Schwarz Group, has implemented an innovative and sustainable packaging solution with its OutNature brand and development partner STI Group.

Lidl and Kaufland are introducing paper packaging based on the silphie plant for their fruit and vegetables, starting with cress packaging in November 2021. Silphie material is suitable for direct food contact.

The technical properties of silphie material have been examined since the end of 2020, with extensive real world production testing carried out. The material proved itself and can now be used in either cardboard or corrugated board format for making packaging and displays.
