Flexible approach to meat packaging

Flexible approach to meat packaging

Three companies have joined forces to develop a trio of flexible packaging approaches for meat products, which help minimise the opportunities for cross contamination of pathogens and reduce food and packaging waste, both in-store and at home

Developed in partnership between Linpac Packaging, Rovipak and Parkside Flexibles Group, Quattrapak is claimed to offer a new tiered packaging system for retailers. It comes in three forms: a barrier ovenable modified atmosphere pack (MAP); a high barrier MAP; and a standard no-barrier flow pack. The two MAP options extend shelf-life, reduce food waste by maintaining freshness and enable consumers to store products for longer at home.

The range is a completely inline formed, filled, printed and sealed, four sided gusseted system. It is said to meet consumer demand for healthy, tasty meals which are easy and quick to prepare. At the same time, it addresses trends such as smaller households and concerns about food and packaging waste.

With Quattrapak, no extra labels, trays or soaker pads are needed.
