UK-based packaging solutions provider Parkside Flexibles has created a first to market re-close pack for Northcoast Seafoods' frozen foods.
Parkside used its laser scribe technology, Parkscribe, to create an easy open and reclosable pack for frozen products.
A PET / PET laminate, which seals to APET and RPET trays, was used in the creation of the Parkside pack design.
It also uses Parkside’s adhesive and Parkscribe laser Technology that enables the all-important re-close function in both ambient and freezer conditions.
It gives consumers a usable portion control pack without the loss of adhesion.
The new packs have initially been developed for frozen prawns. they will soon be available for a range of Northcoast products distributed to retailers in the UK.
Parkside business development manager Paul Lenihan said: “The growing urbanisation and fast-paced lifestyle of consumers in the UK means less time is available for cooking a traditional home cooked meal and an increase in convenience foods including frozen products.
“Frozen foods can be stored for longer periods and can be prepared easily. Our new pack provides consumers with a re-close feature allowing them to easily open the packaging time and time again, with no compromise on the function of the pack.”
Northcoast Seafoods sales and procurement executive Chloe Darwood said: “We were originally looking for a re-close pouch though after hearing about Parkside’s reclose options, we were sold. We have been suitably impressed with Parkside’s solutions and the company’s expertise.
“The team worked closely with our co-packer to ensure the new pack ran down existing packing lines, avoiding any extra costs in additional machines. At Northcoast Seafoods, we are excited to have developed the first reclosable pack developed for the freezer.”
Parkside said the continuous innovation and development of packaging continues to attract new customers within the frozen food market segment.
The company said it is experiencing further development of new features for existing products, like hanging holes and single serve options.
