Ready Meal packaging cut costs by 30%
February 23, 2017

Perfect Automation announces the arrival of Perfectseal LIDD®, a revolutionary lidding design for ready meal food packaging. 

One step processing seals a printed top web laminated to a base film onto the tray.  This enables the consumer to remove the product information and cooking instructions, leaving a microwavable or ovenable sealed film for cooking.

 

This revolutionary lidding packaging solution increases the consumer appeal through the maximisation of the marketing real estate.  Reverse printing of the film top web allows for branding to be clearly visible on the front of the pack, as well as product and cooking information to be printed on the underside.
 
REDUCE WASTE AND YOUR FOOD PACKAGING COSTS BY UP TO 30%.

Perfectseal LIDD™ eliminates the need for an additional cardboard sleeve or other secondary packaging on the ready meal or product, for cooking instructions or brand messaging.  Removing this extra packaging can result in up to a 30% cost saving, including savings in production energy and weight during transit.  Hereby reducing the carbon footprint of the pack.
The packaging stays sealed, clean and intact, unlike the cardboard sleeves which can be torn or removed during transport and handling.

HOW PERFECTSEAL LIDD™ PACKAGING SOLUTION WORKS

 
 

• The first layer of plastic film is laminated to a base film and contains the product details which can be printed using high definition graphics. 
• When the consumer peels back this first layer of film, the cooking instructions and further product details are displayed.  This layer can be fully removed and kept for reference during the cooking process.  
• The second layer of film remains, sealing the food in the tray.  The consumer continues to follow the cooking instructions as per the label.

CONSUMER SAFETY AND PROTECTION

The highly printed top film is safely separated from the bottom film layer prior to cooking, preventing the migration of printing ink contaminating the product.
