Flexible Packaging

A Trusted Global Packaging Partner

Retailers and brands are looking to source polybags from a reputable global supplier, with a chain of custody for recycled content and certifications for factories that produce bags and films. They are also searching for ways to incorporate circular principles into their supply chain with solutions from an experienced partner.

Mainetti’s flexible packaging production locations are GRS (Global Recycled Standard), RCS (Recycled Claim Standard), and ISCC (International Sustainability & Carbon Certification) accredited. We incorporate up to 100% recycled content into polybags, and as a circular economy pioneer and a Member of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, we promote our Polyloop closed-loop solution to use that clear polythene material again and again. With Polyloop, Mainetti’s customers have a solution for recycling their transit films and bags and the ability to introduce circularity into their global polybag programs.

With an established global footprint, and a portfolio of packaging products and solutions, including sustainable alternatives to virgin plastics, Mainetti is the ideal partner for your flexible packaging needs.

Pioneer in Sustainability and the Circular Economy

M-Film™ Flexible Packaging Films

M-Film™ is Mainetti’s exclusive line of flexible packaging films that consider the film’s composition and its end-of-life. M-Film™ is available in a range of thicknesses and recycled content. It is the ideal base material to use in Mainetti’s Polyloop, offering a clean, consistent film that can be reused in a closed-loop process.

M-film™ Air is a good solution for light weight or thinner plastic bags, made with up to 100% recycled content. These products help brands looking to reduce the use of virgin material.

M-film™ Land is our premium solution for polybags. The film is produced from organic polymers, which significantly enhances the rate of biodegradation.

M-film™ Earth is our solution for industrial compostable bags that are produced from resin-based products derived from fully renewable resources.

Global Factory Certifications

Global Recycled Standard (GRS) is a voluntary product standard for tracking and verifying the content of recycled materials in a final product. The standard applies to the full supply chain and addresses traceability, environmental principles, social requirements, chemical content and labeling. GRS covers processing, manufacturing, packaging, labeling, trading and distribution of all products made with a minimum of 20% recycled material.

Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) is an international, voluntary standard that sets requirements for third-party certification of recycled input and chain of custody. The objective of the RCS is to increase the use of recycled materials, alignment of recycled definitions and to track and trace recycled input materials. RCS provides consumers with a tool to provide assurance that materials are recycled and in a final product.

International Sustainability & Carbon Certification (ISCC) is a global certification system covering all kinds of bio-based feedstocks and renewables catering to energy, food, feed, and chemicals sectors. The objective of ISCC is to provide sustainability solutions for fully traceable and deforestation-free supply chains. ISCC focuses on ecological and social sustainability, compliance with laws and international treaties, monitoring of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and good management practices.
