Materials. The plastic of the wrapper in direct contact with the food is designed to ensure that the pizza inside is cooked in the oven.

Technology. It is an important technological innovation in packaging aimed at offering greater service to customers, in particular people intolerant to gluten who are the main recipients of specifically formulated gluten-free products, but at the same time guaranteeing adequate levels of safety of the product itself; in fact, cooking gluten-free pizza in the oven could be a source of contamination with foods containing gluten.

Consistency of the project with the contents of Carta Etica del Packaging, of which Coop Italia has been an ambassador since 2021, in particular for the values "responsible", "balanced", "safe", "accessible", transparent", "informative", "sustainable".

Sustainability. The new plastic wrapper has been lightened by 60% compared to the previous one, without modifications to the cardboard case, guaranteeing a reduction in the consumption of plastic material and, at the same time, improving its technological performance.
