REVIVAL OF THE EASYLID® SYSTEM

In the case of deli products, trays with reclosable lids are a common sight. This packaging system allows for convenient handling, safe storage of opened packs, and excellent protection of the product against premature deterioration. Such trays are often supplied with a snap-on lid, in addition to the top film that provides the hermetic seal. SEALPAC introduced a whole new packaging system several years ago, which is now receiving increased attention due to the discussion about plastic waste: EasyLid®. The concept, developed together with Naber Plastics, is suitable for modified atmosphere packaging. EasyLid® is a tray-sealing technology that enables sealing and lidding in one single step, hence creating maximum efficiency in the packaging process. Recognized for its impact on the environment, the EasyLid® system has already been awarded various international packaging prizes, says SEALPAC.
