Product Packaging manufacturer Qualvis releases a new range of vegan chocolate with fully recyclable and compostable packaging. Qualvis is owned by UK-based conscious chocolate.


Qualvis has come up with a line of fully compostable & recyclable packaging for its range of vegan chocolate.

Qualvis is owned and operated by UK based conscious chocolate who required fresh branding across it product portfolio. This includes a range of organic products such as goji and coconu- flavoured chocolate bars.

Qualivis has commented that there has been in a sharp rise in demand for vegan chocolate & confectionery. As well as this consumers are also pressuring brands to produce products with recyclable and compostable packaging. Parent company Conscious chocolate has commented that this is a crucial time to overhaul and update is brands.

Qualvis are using textured surfaces to apply their print. This gives a tactile effect but as well they use a water based gloss varnish in order to enhance the textured effect further. Richard Pacey, the sales director at Qualivis has commented that this gives the packaging a big lift showing off its vibrant colors!

Both the front and reverse sides of the packaging feature corona, vegetable based inks applied with an impulse heat sealer for optimal quality. The inks themselves are completely bio degradable and meet the sustainability criteria specified in the brief.

The structure of the packaging is interesting too, featuring an nifty bio glue re closure system. Re closing the pack with the tear perforation is extremely easy to do making this one of the most user friendly confectionery packaging designs we have seen.

The founder of Conscious Chocolate, Emma Jackman has also commented that Qualvis turned their dreams into reality! She commented that they have an ‘extremely close’ working relationship that gave them the confidence & trust in what they wanted to strive for.

The design and development for the new product packaging took over one year from inception. The team went the extra mile to achieve product packaging that both looks good and is robust enough to hold its integrity during shelf life.

Qualvis and Gideon Hillman

Qualvis Print & Packaging has awarded a contract to Gideon Hillman Consulting after going through a consultant selection process.

The focus of the contract is on sustainability in packaging, as more and more customers show increased concern for the environment.

Brands must always improve their packaging to make it more supply chain-wide sustainable.

Here are five packaging trends for sustainable products that the partnership will concentrate on for 2022:

1. Less is More
When it comes to sustainability, it pays to think about the materials used in product packaging. By 2022, businesses are predicted to move towards minimalism and simple packaging.

Manufacturers are well-aware of the effect that common packaging material such as paper or metal has on the environment. The upcoming trend is consequently one of 'less is more'.

Manufacturers are reducing the number of materials they use and opting for sustainable alternatives wherever possible. From paper made from recycled materials to soaps being sold in reusable tins or boxes, brands around the world will be increasingly conscious of their packaging choices in order to reduce the negative impact on the environment. Unlike many trends that come and go over time, this one looks set to stick around.

2. Recyclable Packaging
Businesses around the world are looking for innovative ways to reduce their environmental footprints and go green. One of the most impactful changes that businesses have been investing in is switching from traditional plastic-based products to more sustainable packing materials.

Organic fabrics, starch-based biomaterials, corrugated bubble wraps, and biodegradable packing peanuts have experienced a surge in popularity. Companies recognise their newfound potential for protecting products without polluting our planet.

These green materials are resilient alternatives to synthetic plastics and are highly effective at shielding items from different elements. Companies aiming to transition away from petroleum-derived plastics will benefit greatly in 2022 by making use of these renewable materials.

3. Biodegradable or Compostable Packaging
As consumers, it’s all too common to discard packaging without a second thought. Unfortunately, this habit can be disastrous for the environment, leading to wildlife disruption, air and water pollution, and risk to human health.

That’s why biodegradable or compostable packaging is becoming increasingly popular. it enables used packaging to be recycled into something helpful instead of just adding more waste to landfills.

One such example is plantable seed paper boxes. Once discarded into the soil or a garden space, these boxes will actually produce beautiful plants rather than toxic pollutants.

The drive towards biodegradable options in the food & beverage industry is primarily generated by societal trends that favour sustainability and environmental responsibility. In response, businesses are providing their goods in packaging that aims to be both attractive and environmentally beneficial.

4. Flexible Packaging
Flexible packaging is revolutionising the way businesses think about designing and creating product packages. This modern packaging method utilises a variety of non-rigid materials such as foil, plastic, and paper. Flexible packaging has become increasingly popular due to its ability to increase efficiency, reduce cost and provide versatile containers for any type of product.

Food, beverage, personal care, and pharmaceutical industries all benefit from flexible packaging, which allows for economical yet customisable options. As technology advances, so do the capabilities of this innovative packaging style - a testament to its growing popularity.

5. Use Of Eco-Friendly Inks
Eco-friendly inks are not only more beneficial for the environment, but they can also offer businesses a competitive advantage in 2022. By forgoing petroleum-based inks and switching to soy or vegetable-based inks, companies can demonstrate their sustainability credentials to consumers.

Vegetable-based inks are created from linseed or other natural oils, whereas soy-based inks contain vegetable oils that come from soybeans which are biodegradable. In addition, eco-friendly inks have the potential to lower printing costs as they allow higher print speeds while maintaining colour quality and vibrancy.

This saves time and materials and makes it easier to rebrand products without having to invest large amounts of money beforehand. Finally, reducing the number of hazardous materials present in product packaging helps improve safety standards as these toxins can cause respiratory problems when inhaled or digested.
