FFP offers a full range of Resealable packaging
Resealable packaging has experienced rapid market growth in recent times. The ability to reseal your lidding film offers numerous benefits such as reduced food waste, easy accessibility, increased consumer convenience and the ability to have a tamper evident mechanism on printed film.
Film can be supplied plain or printed and is ready to run on any standard heat seal line. Both reclose technology and reseal labels are becoming increasingly popular in the fresh and snacking foods markets and in some cases, the use of reseal technology can remove the requirement for a clip on lid which can offer huge weight savings.
Recyclable Lidding Film
Esterseal is a major development in sustainable packaging, providing a resealable PET lidding film that has been designed to be used with a PET tray to produce the first resealable pack in the UK to be classified as ‘Recycle’ by OPRL and can be collected in its entirety through the existing waste collection system.
Previously lidding film was unable to be collected and would have to be removed from the tray by the consumer and sent to landfill or for incineration. Esterseal however provides a solution that ensures zero lidding film waste needs to be sent to landfill and instead enables it to be collected for recycling.
FFP have responded to market demand by installing a third reseal machine and in so doing have increased capacity and capability.
The new line will accept film widths up to 650mm, which opens the technique to larger flow-wrap formats. A flexible die is used to produce the easy-access opening and the film is then re-reeled ready to run as normal on the customers packing line with no need for modifications.
