Enhance ovenable solutions with OVEN INK from KM Packaging

Focus Article

Consumer focus on food safety and cooking convenience has dramatically increased demand for packaging solutions that do not require consumers to handle raw foods. Ovenable packaging is the perfect way to deliver a convenient solution to customers, enabling food to simply and safely go from fridge, to oven, to
plate.

Safety is paramount when developing packaging designed for the high temperatures involved in microwave or oven use. It is vital that packaging companies and buyers alike are aware of the complex chemical and molecular behaviours of this type of packaging under extreme temperatures and that designs are comprehensively migration tested as required to comply with Commission Regulation (EU) No 10/2011.

KM Packaging offers a wide variety of fully migration-tested microwave and ovenable packaging options. These include flow wraps, pouches and an extensive range of weld seal and peelable lidding films, all of which can be printed with KM’s leading-edge, low migration, high heat resistant OVEN INK technology. Available with or without anti-fog, our lidding film solutions are suitable for CPET and aluminium foil trays as well as renewable alternatives such as PET-lined pressed board trays.

OVEN INK is suitable for cooking at temperatures up to 225 degrees Celsius, 435 degrees Farenheit, for up to 90 minutes, enabling brands to create enhanced marketing and branding on pack, while withstanding the higher heat conditions involved. OVEN INK also opens up opportunities for printing of QSR (Quick Service
Restaurants), food service and airline heated packs.

For enhanced consumer convenience and product safety, our ovenable flow wrap, incorporating KM’s migration tested OVEN INK technology for excellent retail presentation, ensures foodstuffs like chicken, sausage rolls and pies can go from supermarket shelf to plate without the need to be directly handled presenting clear benefits in terms of both convenience and food safety for the consumer.

Get in touch today with KM Packaging to find out how OVEN INK can add value to your business.

Catch-22 of the Plastic Packaging Tax

The UK Government’s imminent Plastic Packaging Tax has created a frustrating Catch-22. The problem is that, for trays containing food intended to be heated with the lid kept on, it is not currently possible to produce a heat-sealable lidding film made with a recycled material approved by EFSA (European Food Safety Authority).

Meeting the seriously strong demand for meat-free products

"I'm a vegan," said Graham. "You'd never guess it," responded Vince. "Do you know what a vegan is, Vince?" Graham asked. "Of course he knows what a vegan is, don't you, Vince?" interjected Penny. "Absolutely, I never missed an episode of Star Trek," Vince said cheekily.

Then canned laughter filled living rooms across the UK.

The world – and humour – has come a long way since the sitcom "Just Good Friends" aired in the 1980s.
