According to information from the company, the mono-material packaging is comprised of a base web and lidding film, all of which is produced and printed by Mondi before being converted for 1 kg and 2 kg blocks of cheese by Skånemejerier. Use of the mono-material film instead of laminate consisting of different types of plastic allows the packaging to be sorted and recycled.
