Pioneering MFL-decorated paper tubs for Upfield’s margarine and spreads

MFL packaging Flora by Upfield

A world premiere for Upfield, as the company is introducing its popular brands Flora, Rama and BlueBand in paper-based tubs. To make the new fiber molded packaging mono-material and thus 100% recyclable, the world’s market leader in plant-based foods turns to MCC’s Molded Fiber LabelingTM as decoration technique.

3+ years of innovation and collaboration

It took about 3 years of innovation and an intense collaboration between Upfield and packaging partners Footprint, Pagès Group and MCC to introduce the new tubs to the market.

For Upfield, the roll-out of the paper tub is a critical step towards meeting its sustainable packaging ambitions by 2030.

Consumers today demand products that benefit both people and the planet. Our plant butters and spreads do exactly that. We're excited about the potential to launch this sustainable, mono-material packaging across our most iconic brands in some of our most important markets"

Adapting our IML know-how to fiber packaging allows us to offer a high-quality and sustainable labelling solution, in line with our sustainability strategy stating that the final packaging should be recyclable, reusable or compostable.”
