Sealpac is among the exhibitors that will bring innovation unveiled at Interpack to Foodpro 2017 taking place in Sydney in July.


Exhibiting on the Columbit Australia stand E30, Level 4, Sealpac will bring its TraySkin system to Foodpro designed for more freshness, improved quality and prolonged shelf life of food products meats.

By using SEALPAC’s TraySkin system, food products are packaged directly inside their tray with a highly transparent barrier skin film, which fits the contours of the product like a second skin.

The secure fixation of the product always ensures a perfect appearance, even if presented vertically (e.g. standing or hanging). The skin film, perfectly matched to the application, ensures a reliable barrier.

As such, the quality, consistency and colour of the product are maintained, resulting in optimal taste. For peeling away the skin film, consumer-friendly opening aids, such as peel tabs or SEALPAC’s EasyPeelPoint system, are available as an option.

Whether meat, poultry, seafood or ready meals – TraySkin is suitable for a wide range of fresh and frozen food items.

Sealpac A10 tray sealer

A new development concerns the use of two-compartment skin trays, where each compartment is sealed individually. Sealing takes place by means of SEALPAC’s unique OnTrayCut system, which was specifically developed for skin applications.

This guarantees immaculate presentation at retail, both from a visual and tactile point of view. Due to the perforation between the compartments, each portion can easily be separated from the other.

If desired, SEALPAC’s EasyPeelPoint can be added to allow for easy opening of the skin pack. With this new tray, SEALPAC addresses the growing demand for efficient packaging of smaller portions of food, mainly coming from the increasing number of single households.

By solving the common mismatch between the amount of food inside a tray compared to the actual need of the buyer, SEALPAC lives up to its goal as a member of the Save Food initiative: to continuously develop new packaging solutions that reduce food waste.
