Easy-peel lids 'a top ingredient for fridge pack'

01 December 2010

Quality and peel performance are 'winning ingredients' for the new Heinz Beanz Fridge Pack, thanks to the newly specified high barrier lidding features created by LPF Flexible Packaging

Household brand Heinz appointed LPF Flexible Packaging to supply the high barrier lidding required for its new family fridge pack, due to its superior quality, specification and easy-peel properties.

LPF Flexible Packaging, part of the Clondalkin Group Flexible Packaging Division, created an 80mm high barrier, reel-fed lid made from a transparent three-layer structure with glass coated polyester, nylon and special high-performance sealable and peelable cast polypropylene, created by its sister company, Wentus in Germany.

The chosen specification delivers multiple benefits, including tamper evidence, an excellent oxygen barrier, longer shelf-life of up to 15 months, retortable up to 131 degrees Celsius and can deliver better value than induction sealing.

Maximum seal performance provides quality and convenience by ensuring that the product does not leak and that its ‘easy-peel’ properties ensure ease-of-use by the consumer.

The Heinz Beanz Fridge Pack is an exciting new product that provides an alternative to the traditional tin can. The packaging keeps Heinz baked beans fresh in the fridge for up to five days, allowing consumers to choose portion sizes to suit their requirements.

Ron Harland, sales manager at LPF Flexible Packaging, said: “The new Heinz Beanz Fridge Pack is a fantastic new concept and one that is already very popular among consumers. LPF Flexible Packaging produces numerous high performance lidding products and these are exported worldwide.

“At present, our transparent high-performance lidding runs on over 120 packaging lines and is widely used on plastic cups and trays for a range of everyday food products. It's an excellent product for companies looking at choices in addition to tin cans and glass jars to reduce packaging weight, increase convenience and showcase their products to their full potential.”

LPF Flexible Packaging, part of Clondalkin Group’s Flexible Packaging Division, is a specialist producer of multi-layer gravure printed laminates and its state-of-the-art rotogravure and laminating machines ensure top quality packaging.

Clondalkin’s Flexible Packaging Division specialises in coated and laminated paper, polyester, foil and resin based packaging serving the Food & Beverage, Dairy & Convenience, Confectionery & Bakery, Cosmetics & Toiletries, Biodegradable, Agricultural & Horticultural and Industrial & Institutional markets.

The division operates more than 20 production locations throughout Europe and North America. These include Cats-Haensel, Vaassen Flexible Packaging, NYCO, Chadwicks, Flexoplast, Wentus, Van Der Windt Group, Accutech Films, Direct Plastics and Fortune Plastics.

The design brief for this product was to bring ‘bag in box’ wine into the 21st century. In order to do so, it was decided that wine in a box had to become ‘fashionable’. With the knowledge that 8 out of every 10 bottles of wine bought to drink at home are bought by women plus the knowledge that handbags are at the top of a woman’s most wanted list, the Vernissage Wine Handbag was, without doubt, the most obvious fashion choice.Full Story...
