Linpac introduces new EPS box solutions for foodservice sector

Food packaging manufacturer Linpac (Klöckner Pentaplast) is set to introduce new EPS box solutions for foodservice sector.

The company will offer five of its EPS box solutions in black color for fast food retailers and caterers.

Manufactured in the UK, Linpac’s new black EPS packs are provided in a range of shapes and sizes to be used for different meal products.

EPS serves as an insulator to keep food cold or warm depending on use, and it will not contaminate the air or water with gases or hydro soluble substances as it does not biodegrade.

EPS packaging helps to protect products, enhance shelf-life and reduce food waste. It is recyclable and holds high calorific value.

Linpac foodservice and convenience sales director Mark Durston said: “The foodservice sector is currently undergoing quite a transformation.

“The huge trend for upmarket street food has put dining on-the-go in the same arena as dining out; street food caterers can serve up anything from tantalising Vietnamese noodles to flavoursome Mexican tortillas and consumers are enjoying this new dining experience.

“We have rejuvenated some of our EPS solutions to deliver a premium offering that ticks all the boxes in terms of functionality, sustainability and performance for foodservice packaging, whilst at the same time providing a solution that reflects the market and dining experience it is intended for.”

In July this year, Klöckner Pentaplast acquired Linpac Senior Holdings and its direct and indirect subsidiaries, creating a rigid and flexible film with annual revenues crossing $2bn.

The combined business offers multiple packaging options to customers and carries out operations in around 16 countries.
