Mr Giovanni Sannino, CEO, at the Italian firm using NatureFlex™ 55HK1, SAGIFI S.p.A, commented, "We believe in delivering excellence to the customer. These new home compostable films for lidding applications from Innovia Films, allow us to meet our environmental obligations while offering excellent functionality to our customers."

The new film, NatureFlex™ 55HK1, comprises NatureFlex™ together with a proprietary sealant layer, which further increases the technical capabilities of the cellulose-based packaging film.
