Spain’s EDV Packaging has worked with HJ Heinz Australia to develop what the companies are dubbing “a revolution” in shelf-stable seafood packaging.
EDV has developed a lightweight high barrier white PP/EVOH/PP cup for the launch of 10 “value added” tuna and salmon varieties for Heinz’s Australian Greenseas brand. Heinz and EDV say that while shelf-stable seafood has traditionally been sold in cans or glass, they were keen to “boost the healthy eating sector” with a new pack concept offering customer convenience, portability and a long-shelf life.
The 100g recyclable cup, with resealable lid and spork, is manufactured at EDV’s Llinars del Vallès plant in Spain. Alongside long shelf-life, it reportedly provides an excellent moisture barrier to safeguard seafood against decay and preserve its taste for up to 18 months after packing under optimal ambient conditions. The opaque base provides UV and light protection, while the cup is hermetically thermosealed with printed aluminium foil.
