Mondi and Czech packaging producer Litobal expand partnership

PKBR Staff Writer Published 13 November 2017

Czech packaging producer Litobal has expanded its partnership with Mondi to grow business in the bread bag and shopping bag markets.

Since 2001, the companies have been expanding their business in various paper-based packaging fields, including bread bag business.

Litobal is using Mondi Speciality Kraft Paper’s white and brown machine glazed papers for its bread bags, as well as a range of machine finished brown and white grades for shopping bag production.

Both companies are also working together to expand their technical service and research and development (R&D) capabilities.

Litobal will become a partner of Mondi’s exclusive print competence centre, helping to focus on printability to achieve optimum brand appearance and meet market needs.

With four production sites, Mondi Speciality Kraft Paper produces a range of machine-finished (MF) grades, including EcoVantage paper range, smooth-finished (SF) and machine-glazed (MG) grades.

Litobal owner Zdenek Stojánek said: “We chose Mondi as the main paper supplier for our bread bag and shopping bag production because of its know-how and the high quality and comprehensive range of its speciality kraft papers – all available from a single source. Mondi is the best fit for our vision and packaging solutions.

Mondi Speciality Kraft Paper technical sales service head Petr Jindra said: “At the R&D Print Competence Centre of Mondi Štetí in the Czech Republic we focus on finding ways to develop and optimise our paper grades’ printability.
