David Williams, Senior Buyer at Sykes Seafood commented
“Bringing a new product range to market is very exciting but also has its challenges. When it came to the packaging we knew what we wanted to achieve in terms of functionality and recyclability and took this to Constantia FFP who presented us with a solution that met all of our criteria.” He continues “we worked very closely with Constantia FFP throughout the process and are delighted with the finished results. The products are now being very well received in Aldi stores across the UK and are offering customers a choice of incredibly convenient and easy to cook, healthy meal options.”
PP-Steam is a new sustainable innovation from Constantia FFP who were delighted to work closely with Sykes Seafood to bring a market first sustainable product to supermarket shelves and provide Aldi UK with a solution that supported their sustainable objectives whilst meeting the needs of their customers. It is available as reel fed material and as pre-made pouches or bags. The valve is applied to the material by Constantia FFP during the production process and runs as registered film on existing packaging lines at normal speeds without the need for costly modifications.
The ‘Steam & Serve’ range is available in three delicious recipes; ‘King Prawns in Creamy Pesto Sauce’, ‘Fish with Tomato, Oregano & Feta’ and ‘King Prawns in a Thai Green Curry’.
