Frutas Montosa and ITC Packaging reach an agreement to use avocado waste in the manufacture of new packaging

Barrier Packaging, Biobased, Compostable, Innovation, Solutions 13 de May de 2021

Frutas Montosa and ITC Packaging have reached a commitment to support the development of new functional packaging being developed in the Guacapack project. These containers represent a step towards circularity and the reuse of resources by reusing the waste generated by the transformation of avocado into containers for guacamole packaging. Through this agreement, Frutas Montosa will provide the avocado waste necessary for the development of the new material and, later on, it will support the market launch of these new sustainable packaging solutions.

Guacapack’s main objective is the development of a new biodegradable packaging system that will extend the life of avocado-based foods by 15%. It is a new technology based on renewable sources that incorporates barrier labels to reduce the penetration of oxygen inside the package, as well as antioxidant additives from the waste of this fruit.

Guacapack is a project funded by the AVI (Valencian Agency for Innovation) in the Program of Strategic Projects in Cooperation 2020.  It is being developed by a consortium formed by ITC Packaging, Aimplas and the research group of Analysis of Polymers and Nanomaterials of the University of Alicante (Nanobiopol-UA).
