Designed for fresh and cooked meats, the packs enable contents to be put in separate portion-size sections in modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) to reduce spoilage and contamination.
The new packs mean consumers can store food for longer without compromising food safety.
Joanna Stephenson, vice president marketing and innovation at Linpac, says: "Too often, when consumers use regular packs, some of the contents end up in the bin if they're not put on the barbecue. Well-designed packaging can help consumers use the right amount of food and then keep it in the best condition for longer, minimising the food waste trend we're all conscious of in today's tough economic climate ."
The split packs are designed so that the consumer can buy a tray of four chicken drumsticks, for example, open one side of the pack and use two of them, then put the remaining two back in the fridge in a pack which is still sealed.
Linpac makes trays for burgers, sausages, meatballs, kebabs and chicken pieces and has developed a range to pack more than one food product together.
