Climate Preservation

Using less material to work with without sacrificing performance:

  • high barrier laminates and pouches do not contain aluminum;
  • cap and packaging upgrades to reduce exposure to environment

 

We use renewable materials for production:

  • high barrier paper pouches;
  • compostable laminates for dry applications;
  • caps, laminates and high barrier bags on biological basis.

Human health and safety

Safe and certified packaging:

  • BabyCap®: large cap size prevents accidental ingestion by our smallest consumers.
  • WavyCap has the same safety features as BabyCap® but with a different design for shelf differentiation and less use of plastic.
  • NEW BabyCap+is the most innovative solution in terms of product safety perspective.

Social responsibility

The social projects and activities promoted by Gualapack and the Social Foundation are inspired by some of the 17 United Nations goals.
Ukraine

In Ukraine, Gualapack is engaged in social and environmental projects through the SociAL Foundation.

The SociAL Foundation was established by the Guala family of companies to invest a portion of the Group’s proceeds in support of initiatives that promote social inclusion, economic assistance and cultural development.
