FFPE has been developed for outstanding performance and due to the laminate structure it will run efficiently on existing packaging lines without the need for capital investment and with no drop off in throughput. FFPE can already be found in freezers across the country and is an ideal sustainable packaging solution for foods such as frozen vegetables, potato products, fruit & berries, seafood, meat and poultry. The capability to incorporate a PE zip into the material allows consumers to reseal the packaging and easily control portion sizes without compromising on recyclability.
FFPE is a fully printable solution and can be produced with outstanding print quality that won’t scratch or rub-off as is often the case with single layer packaging solutions that are surface printed. FFPE is reverse printed with the print sandwiched between the material layers which completely eliminates the risk of print rubbing off and provides brand owners with the opportunity to create vibrant designs that will last the lifecycle of the product and enhance their brand image. It can also be provided with tactile finishes such as gloss or matt effects.
FFPE is available in reel form, as stand-up pouches, pre-made bags and sachets. It presents a very viable lightweighting opportunity which enables products to pass more economically through the supply chain and potentially reduce carbon emissions.
