Aldi launches chicken in self-venting packs

Related tags Flavor

Aldi's new range of flavoured/added value roast in the bag chickens is the first to feature FFP's Estercook SV laminate, a new self-venting version.

Estercook SV film releases steam gently during cooking, so the consumer is insulated from raw protein, reducing the risk of contamination from pathogens such as campylobacter, which is a big problem in UK poultry.

With Estercook SV, the pack opens automatically to release steam during cooking so there is no need to pierce the pack, increasing convenience and providing a better barrier between the consumer and the raw bird.

Aldi’s ‘Ashfield Farm’ range features a variety of flavours, including Garlic and Herb and Piri-Piri, providing customers with a host of new taste options. Chicken cooked in these packs are claimed to retain moisture, texture and succulence, while being able to release easily from the film.

Aldi’s new range is supplied by 2 Sisters Food Group. Packs are printed flexographically by FFP, with the inks and adhesives used meeting all relevant standards.
