Sealpac, a member of the Save Food Initiative, has teamed up with Naber Plastics and PerfoTec to discuss the issue of fresh produce waste from a packaging point of view, and came up with a solution: PerfoLid. Detailed regulation of the oxygen level of fresh produce is a critical factor to achieve optimal shelf life at retail and maximum freshness for the final customer. PerfoTec achieves the optimum protective atmosphere inside the pack, also known as Active Modified Atmosphere Packaging (AMAP), by laser perforation of the top film, where the amount and size of the holes is perfectly tuned to the breathing pattern of the product. The PerfoTec system is extremely accurate and always fits the product so the shelf life of fresh produce is extended considerably. SEALPAC and Naber Plastics offer an additional benefit: Sealing and lidding in one single step. The result is a tray with highly reliable lid functionality, without the need for an additional snap-on lid. This system, also known in the marketplace as EasyLid®, can be combined with the PerfoTec system, to create a recloseable pack for fruits and vegetables with extended shelf life.
