The Koehler NexPlus Advanced packaging used for Nucao’s Fruits & Nuts is 100% made from paper and can be placed in the paper recycling after use. 

The flexible packaging paper provided by Koehler boasts an excellent oxygen, mineral oil, and grease barrier, necessary for applications where there is direct contact with chocolate and nuts.

This switch enables Nucao to meet a key consumer demand for greater sustainability and to lead the way in the chocolate market with how it chooses to package its products.

Mathias Schwarz, sustainable packaging engineer, Nucao said, “We opted for Koehler NextPlus Advanced 75 gsm after extensive tests. In addition to product protection, which was assessed using storage tests with a subsequent sensory analysis, the fact that the paper could be recycled in the paper recycling was an important factor.”

In early 2021, Koehler Paper launched new secondary packaging in the market with Koehler NexPlus Seal, which has since been used by numerous brand owners.
