Integrated packaging firm Multivac and Snapsil Corporation have joined hands to design a packaging system that incorporates the latter’s snap-opening into the former’s thermoforming machines.
Claiming to provide consumers with user-friendly food packaging, the firms have embedded the snap-opening feature into the lower web of thermoformed pack, according to a report by GlobalMeatnews.
Snapsil and Multivac have a global cooperation agreement for the use of the patented Snapsil easy opening packaging concept on Multivac thermoforming packaging machines.
The system does away with the need for any perforation of the film usually marked in the opening areas of the portion pack. As a result, the new packaging system frees the barriers and leads to free flow of the contents.
Welcome Foods, an arm of Bakkavor group, has been using the packs for its food range. It has already purchased a thermoforming machine equipped with special dies for making Snapsil packs.
With the installation of the production line, Welcome Foods has the potential for making 120 Snapsil packs a minute.
