Seafood firm’s seal of approval for packaging system

Packaging firm Sealpac says its newest launch combines the ‘sought-after skin packaging process’ with a plastic reduction of up to 75%.

The FlatSkin system allows for extended shelf life, and uses cardboard carriers instead of plastic skin trays.

“The cardboard allows for double-sided printing, offering optimal space for product information while providing unique branding opportunities,” says a Sealpac spokesman. “A highly transparent barrier skin film fixates the product directly onto the flat cardboard carrier, which has been coated with a polymeric protective layer. This layer provides stability to the cardboard and forms a reliable barrier against grease, moisture and oxygen.”

Danish seafood processor Vega Salmon is already using the packaging system for its hot-smoked salmon products.

The products are manufactured on a Sealpac A10 traysealer with eight-impression tooling for cardboard carriers measuring 260×130 mm.
