Advanced Lidding Solutions For Food Service Applications

Leading global supplier of flexible packaging and lidding films, KM Packaging, has created next-generation solutions for airline meal trays and other food service applications utilising its advanced Peel range of lidding films, combined with the company’s cutting-edge OVEN INK high definition flexo technology.

Airline Meal Tray Lidding Films

Sealing to CPET, mono CPET, PET-lined pressed board and lacquered foil, the KPeel range delivers a strong, secure seal ensuring minimal wastage, ideal for cooking and serving airline meals and ensuring the peeling window is sufficient to allow easy peeling when placed in front of the passenger. KPeel ovenable films deliver excellent clarity, are suitable for high temperature applications, as defined by EU legislation under Directive 10/2011, and can be supplied with anti-fog lidding properties if required. 

The company’s leading-edge low migration, high heat-resistant OVEN INK technology and adhesive systems offer manufacturers enhanced marketing and branding opportunities while withstanding the higher heat conditions involved in airline meal preparation. Both the KPeel range and OVEN INK technology are suitable for cooking at temperatures of 225 degrees Celsius (435 degrees Farenheit) for up to 90 minutes, providing the ideal solution for airline meals and food service applications.

Charles Smithson, Managing Director at KM Packaging, said: “By harnessing our advanced KPeel range of lidding films and our leading-edge OVEN INK technology we can deliver the ideal lidding film solution for all airline meals and food service applications, offering not only high-performance at temperatures of up to 225 degrees Celsius (435 degrees Farenheit), but also excellent product presentation. The strong hot and cold peelable seal also delivers enhanced customer convenience by ensuring the peeling window is sufficient to create a consistently smooth peel with no sharding or tears.” 

Benefits of OVEN INK for Major International Airline Meals

The company recently tailored a solution utilising KPeel and OVEN INK technology to meet the needs of a major international airline looking to enhance and modernise its economy class meal offering. Combining a CPET tray with KPeel lidding film printed using OVEN INK, the high-performance solution delivered consumer convenience, minimised food waste and kept food fresher for longer by extending shelf life significantly and mitigating potential issues arising from flight delays. 

For ease of use in demanding food service conditions, no piercing of the pack is required due to the product self-venting in the oven. KPeel is available in a range of thicknesses from 16-40 microns to meet the needs of a wide range of pack applications and can be supplied in slit widths to suit customer specification or in master reel widths for converters and distributors.
