Constantia FFP have wholeheartedly committed to the development of materials and pack formats that can help to reduce any negative impact on the environment. Our EcoPaper packaging solutions are fully recyclable and collected through existing infrastructure.
There are of course challenges around the use of paper in food packaging, however Constantia FFP have developed a one side coated paper packaging solution that can be heat or cold sealed and is offered in three barrier grades to suit your product requirements. Our EcoPaper solutions can be collected via the paper recycling stream and are available in reel form or as pre-made bags and pouches.

The EcoPaper Family
EcoPaper is the first of three barrier grades in the EcoPaper family. Recyclable via the Paper waste stream, it presents many advantages for low barrier applications.
EcoPaperPlus is the second of three barrier grades in the EcoPaper family. It is ideal for medium barrier applications offering a recyclable solution for products that have aroma and grease barrier requirements.
The highest barrier grade in the EcoPaper family. Suitable for products that require good oxygen and water vapour barrier. Available in a range of formats and recyclable through the paper collection stream.
A recyclable paper-based solution for reel fed lidding applications. Providing excellent peelability, EcoPaperLidding is heat sealable against PS, PET, PLA, Paper/PE etc.
A recyclable wax free paper for twist wrapping of confectionery products. EcoPaperTwist provides excellent grease resistance and has been tested on standard and high-speed twist machines. It can be recycled via the paper recycling stream.
The Plastic Tax
The plastic packaging tax was implemented by the UK government in April 2022. A tax of £210.82 per metric tonne is now enforced for all plastic packaging components that do not contain at least 30% recycled material.
Constantia FFP’s EcoPaper family of packaging solutions is both exempt from the Plastic Packaging Tax but it also offers a solution that is classified as ‘Recycle’ by OPRL and can be collected in the paper waste stream.
