Firms link up for secure lidding
FFP Packaging Solutions and MacFarlane have joined forces to develop a secure, reclosable lidding system, which has recently been introduced to Tesco’s snack range of pasties, snack rolls, sausages and savoury eggs.
The Esterpeel Reseal-It system combines FFP Packaging Solutions’ Esterpeel lidding film with MacFarlane Label’s proven tamper-evident, reclosable label system. Together they form a reclosable, tamper-evident heat-seal lidding, which the companies claim “simplifies and reduces packaging while being easy to use and attractive”.
Esterpeel Reseal-it is a ‘solution on the reel’, which means that the packer can apply the film and seal the packs on a standard packing line, running at their normal speed. There is no need for any further packaging beyond the lidding film, so packaging is reduced in weight and simplified.
Commenting on the development, Gary Tee of FFP stated: “Resealable lidding film has a huge potential to add value and reduce packaging. Now, with Esterpeel Reseal-it, we know that we have a fantastic new packaging option for a huge variety of products.”
