About us

Innovia Films has around 90 years’ experience of supplying speciality films to the packaging and labelling industry.

Today Innovia is a major producer of highly differentiated speciality BOPP films offering products produced using ‘Bubble’, Stenter and Cast manufacturing processes.  It holds a leading global position in the markets for high performance coated packaging, tobacco overwrap, label and security films.

Our films are sold to brand-owners, end-users and converters across the globe.  They become part of the solution for the tobacco overwrap, packaging or labelling of some of the world’s best known brands across a wide variety of everyday consumer goods.  These include home and personal care products, food and beverages, confectionery, tobacco, luxury goods and industrial applications.

Innovia employs >1400 people worldwide and has production sites in Australia, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Mexico and the United Kingdom.  The company is focused on high quality value added products, strong customer relationships, Research & Development and excellent service.

Innovia has developed two new BOPP film ranges aimed at improving the recyclability of pack structures and to reduce carbon footprints.

The Propafilm™ Strata range are high barrier EVOH mono multilayer films that can be used as stand-alone packaging or within laminate structures such as pouches to make them easier to recycle.  The most recent launch in this product range is Propafilm™ Strata SLF a high-speed barrier packaging film for horizontal form-fill-seal applications.  All Strata products are chlorine free.

The other is our Encore highly functional sustainable film range.  These films are manufactured from renewable non-food based raw materials, helping to reduce the use of fossil-based virgin raw materials. They can be manufactured to reduce the carbon footprint of the film or to be fully carbon neutral (cradle to gate). The renewable polymer for Encore is managed through ISCC PLUS chain of custody. They are suitable for use in all market segments currently using BOPP films.

Chemical recycling of polypropylene is a rapidly developing technology which reduces the use of fossil raw materials and is food contact compliant, while maintaining all the properties of fossil-based films. However, from a GWP perspective, it does not have as good a carbon footprint as mechanical recycled polypropylene.

Innovia has product options for BOPP flexible films with both chemically recycled or mechanically recycled polymers under the Encore range.

Working with Interseroh, an Independent German recycling and consulting company, we have confirmed the recyclability of all our uncoated, acrylic coated, Strata and Encore range of BOPP films.  All have achieved the ‘Made for recycling’ certification.  This certification provides us with independent validation that our polypropylene films are fully recyclable and can be classified as ‘recycle ready’, or recyclable in countries which have the infrastructure to recycle polypropylene.
