The desire from people to maintain a healthy lifestyle and with consistent messaging both on pack and through the media to eat ‘5 a day’ it is not surprising that the fresh food sector remains buoyant.

Thanks to product packaging and a robust supply chain, we can now import produce all year round from all over the globe to keep supermarket shelves stocked 365 days a year with fresh produce.

Packaging plays a vital role in the supply chain, protecting food from environmental conditions, physical damage and maintaining product freshness. No matter where the product ends its journey; either on supermarket shelves, in the food service, at a wholesaler or in food production, packaging is required to ensure products arrive safely, stay fresh and avoid food waste, which in turn can have a negative impact on the environment.

The sector is also driven by consumer desire for fresh produce to have extended shelf life without compromising on taste and texture. With busy lifestyles, interim ‘top-up’ shops during the week are becoming unrealistic which is developing the consumers desire for products with extended shelf-life. Packaging techniques and materials can assist in achieving this.

Recyclable Lidding Film

Constantia FFP have developed a recyclable lidding film that represents a major development in sustainable packaging. The resealable mono material lidding film, available in either PET or PP, has been designed to be used with a tray of the same material to produce the first mono material resealable pack in the UK to be classified as ‘Recycle’ by OPRL and collected in its entirety through the existing waste collection system.

Mono Material Recyclable Laminates

Our mono material recyclable laminates are also demanding shelf space as they are extremely versatile and can be recycled with carrier bags at supermarkets. Available in reel form, as stand-up pouches or pre-made bags, they offer high barrier solutions where gas flushing is required. These products are strong, flexible and lightweight, providing an exciting alternative for companies looking for a recyclable solution whilst still maintaining functionality and creating vibrant shelf-appeal.
