The Lotus Bakeries Group packs its ‘Lotus Soft’ waffles with eggs in six packs of two waffles. The company has managed to lower the weight of the individual packs by 17% by reducing the thickness of the packaging film from 30 to 25 micrometres. The film bears no impression and is made of a unique material (polypropylene). In addition, the use of an acrylic base is avoided where possible. This base, which was applied on both sides of the film, acted as an additional barrier against air and humidity.
