Semo Packaging is innovating with Fresh’Closure®, a new 100% re-closable, mono-material food packaging solution

29 April 2015

Current closure solutions for food packaging do not always give full satisfaction. With this in mind, Semo Packaging has developed Fresh’Closure®, a new mono-material solution for the easy opening and closure of food packs.

Fresh’Closure®: a pioneering film in the food packaging market 
Current closure solutions for food packaging such as those containing sandwich bread for example, do not always give full satisfaction. Their lack of user friendliness, the time taken to re-close the bag, poor product preservation, broken films and lost ties are just some of the criticisms often levelled against them.

With the current emphasis on avoiding food waste, the preservation of foodstuffs has become a major challenge. A badly closed product is more at risk from humidity, dirt or mould and consequently ends up in the bin more quickly. A badly stored product is also a product which poses a risk to health (food poisoning).   

To tackle these packing and preservation problems encountered by consumers, Semo Packaging has designed the patented Fresh’Closure® film, with its innovative drawstring system.

This new technology offers numerous advantages: better preservation of products and for longer, in addition to easy opening and closure. Even with repetitive use, the product retains its freshness and most of its nutritional properties.

A more ecological and easily identifiable film
What's more, Fresh’Closure® was designed to be 100% recyclable and reusable. Its production process, which requires less material, also makes it possible to reduce C02 emissions.

In addition to the environmental benefits, Semo Packaging’s latest innovation has also been designed to be easily recognisable by consumers on the store shelves. If you look at a shelf full of packaged loaves of sandwich bread today, you will see that they are all similar. With the re-closable Fresh’Closure® bag, producers now have a great way to stand out from the competition.
