KM Packaging Launches Advanced Lidding Solution KPeel PLUS+

Press Release

KM Packaging, a leading global supplier of flexible packaging and lidding films, has launched its KPeel PLUS+ range of lidding solutions designed to overcome the challenges faced by many food manufacturers when working in demanding tray sealing conditions.

Part of the KPeel family of highly versatile peelable polyester lidding films, this leading-edge solution conquers the sealing and contamination challenges created when packing tricky foodstuffs, such as oily products, processed vegetables, pasta and sauces. 

Key features of KPeel PLUS+ are the heavier heat seal coating and wide sealing range, delivering enhanced performance in both hot and cold conditions. Sealing to APET, RPET, CPET, Mono CPET and PP trays as well as PET and Epoxy lacquered aluminium trays and PET lined pressed board trays, this range of lidding films can be used for a multitude of food applications including ambient, chilled and frozen, is dual ovenable and available with or without anti-fog. Even when no contamination issues are present, KPeel PLUS+ delivers a firmer, stronger peel minimising loss and food waste in the supply chain.

Nigel Down, Head of Technical at KM Packaging, said: “KPeel PLUS+ enables us to deliver a broad range of high performance solutions that combine a heavier heat seal coating with excellent transparency, clarity and print properties. We can therefore tailor solutions for our customers’ specific sealing conditions without compromising on pack functionality and performance.

“This results in real, measurable benefits including time and cost savings, as well as enhanced presentation, so important in today’s dynamic retail environment. KPeel PLUS+ provides effective and reliable seal performance when other solutions simply fail to meet the standard.” 

To meet the needs of a wide range of pack applications, KPeel PLUS+ is available in thicknesses from 16-40 microns and is particularly relevant to manufacturers where there is a high risk of food contamination of the tray flange or a unique tray design is being considered. 

With over 30 years’ experience, KM Packaging delivers advanced packaging solutions and expertise to food manufacturers around the globe.

The career, life, and times of barnstorming Claire

From transforming a derelict barn into a family home, to breaking glass ceilings in the male-dominated world of banking, to performing the work of Gilbert and Sullivan, and streamlining practices and operations here at KM, life has never been dull for Claire Meads. 

Now, as she heads into "retirement", Claire has no intention of slowing down, with plans that include extensive travel, volunteer work, further education, and finishing that barn conversion!

Before saying her farewells to KM Packaging, Claire took some rare timeout to answer a few questions about her life and career.

Lifting the Lid on Plastic: Food for thought on tackling food waste

Try to imagine 200 million elephants. Or 900 million compact cars. That is the equivalent weight of food lost or wasted each year. 

The startling 1.3 billion tonnes of loss or waste is roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption, according to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).
