    The aim of this presentation is to demonstrate totally bio-based multilayer films. These films were prepared with a thin coating of fibrillated cellulose as a barrier against oxygen and mineral oil residues. Such films are feasible for packing of dry foods in formats such as bag-in-box, flexible pouches, and most recently stand-up pouches. The cellulose fibrils can provide the films with a barrier suitable even for more demanding products and for modified atmosphere packaging.
