Flexible packaging and lidding films supplier KM Packaging has launched a new resealable lidding solution, which it says will improve consumer convenience and reduce product waste.

KReseal PET e AF, which can seal to aPET, rPET and some PET-lined pressed board trays, subject to testing, can be peeled and resealed multiple times without losing adhesion. According to Charles Smithson, managing director, the solution is ideal for preserving foods such as fruits, meats and cheeses, and helps to avoid contamination including odour from other food products.

“KReseal PET e AF is a fantastic addition to our comprehensive range of lidding film solutions. Offering a full-flange based reseal system, we can help manufacturers enhance convenience, minimise food waste and extend product shelf life.

“With the ability to peel and reseal multiple times, consumers can buy in bulk, safe in the knowledge that food products will stay fresh due to a firm, secure reseal. This latest addition to the KReseal range is also ideal for on-the-go snacking, as packs can be closed and re-opened in between meals, without the fear of product leaks,” said Smithson.
