Benefits of our Modified Atmosphere Packaging
We recognize that the transition to paper-based packaging is of importance for many of our existing and potential customers. It is clear to us that our packaging solutions need to meet the functionality, presentation of the existing MAP tray designs. We therefore made sure that the Solidus MAP trays can be produced on the same packaging machines that today produce the plastic packaging products. And thus, lowering the hurdle for packers and brand-owners to transfer to our paper-based packaging solution.
Besides the operational requirements we meet with our solid board alternative, we even offer higher cardboard grammage possibilities in regards to other fibre-based MAP producers. By performing this, we make sure our liners and boards offers solutions for an extensive range of (heavier) products including fresh or processed meat, ready-made products, cheese, frozen foods, fish and fruit. Due to our higher board grammages, our MAP solutions match the shelf life afforded by traditional plastic MAP trays.
- MAP is a long established method to extend the shelf life of fresh food. The technology substitutes the air inside a package with a protective gas mix.
- The Solidus MAP uses an FSC® certified solid board made from renewable fibres. It reduces up to 90% of the plastic content vs incumbent plastic solutions.
- The solid board trays feature a transparent barrier film to seal the tray. After taking out the product, the layer is easily removed from the solid board to allow for separate disposal.
- The trays are easily printable which is not possible with the plastic products in the market today.
