Together Health - Embracing High Barrier Compostable Packaging for Diverse Supplement Products


Together Health, a prominent UK-based supplement brand known for its commitment to sustainability, sought to revolutionize its packaging strategy to align with its eco-conscious ethos. Understanding the environmental impact of traditional packaging, the company aimed to transition to compostable pouches for its supplements.
Required high barrier compostable kraft paper pouch for over 20 different product variations, each with varying quantities.
Sustainable Packaging: Together Health aimed to transition to compostable kraft paper packaging but required the barrier performance should be suitable for their supplement products.
Printing Challenges: With over 20 different packaging variations, traditional printing methods such as gravure were not feasible due to the diversity and varying quantities of each design.
Color Precision: Ensuring the accurate replication of the brown kraft paper background posed a significant challenge in achieving precise color reproduction.
Multi-layered Compostable Material Structure: Customized multi-layered compostable structures were designed, incorporating biofilm sourced from reputable brands to enhance the packaging's barrier performance.
Flexibility of Digital Printing: Digital printing offered the flexibility required to accommodate the extensive range of designs and variable quantities efficiently.
Color Testing and Calibration: Extensive rounds of color testing and calibration were conducted to achieve the precise brown kraft paper background desired by the client. Iterative testing allowed for adjustments until the accurate color replication was achieved.
