Smart Packaging Solutions

This is an innovative format for on-the- go products with a range of easy peel/resealable options. Semi-rigid packaging protects products that are delicate or easy to crush. High clarity film displays food products well, allowing this pack format to stand out on the shelf — whether it is stacked or presented as a hangsell. Well-suited for strong graphic presentation, semi rigid film supports MAP (Modified Atmosphere Packaging) and extended shelf life product requirements. This form of packaging also offers easy stacking and great carton utilization and efficiency.

Ambient fill (up to 60°C), warm fill (60°C-75°C), and will not deform or leak during and/or after filling.
This suitable for ambient and chilled products due to the wide range of film structures available. Construction is tailored to end use.
Designed to retain MAP gas as long as possible, the correct barrier laminate construction will keep product in the best possible condition for as long as possible.
