What is the best flexible packaging solution for food products?

It may seem like a simple question, but the answer to what is the best flexible packaging solution is a bit more complex. Primoreels explains more.

There is currently a great focus on packaging and how it affects our surroundings and the environment. Companies are under huge pressure from consumers to show initiatives that result in a greener and more sustainable profile.

The food industry has searched high and low for solutions that will satisfy consumer demands and is now seeking to reduce packaging, identify alternative materials and find new biosolutions.

Less packaging

The most obvious step companies have taken has been to reduce the thickness of the material used. By reducing the volume of materials without compromising food safety, producers have succeeded in minimising their carbon footprint almost without changing existing processes.

Alternative materials

The industry mission of reducing carbon footprints over and above what can be achieved simply by reducing the volume of packaging material has created a stronger demand for alternative solutions.

One such solution could be to replace aluminum with metallised films.

New bio-based materials

In recent years, experiments with bio-based or biodegradable films have been conducted in an attempt to avoid or even eliminate fossil-based materials.

Although much progress has been made, available materials are still not viable alternatives in most types of food packaging.

One size does not fit all

The packaging industry offers a wide range of packaging solutions. Different materials have different properties that are suited for different products. The right solution will always depend on the type of product to be packed and should always be selected in consultation with the packaging supplier.

Primoreels offers customers a new way of sealing cup lids. Our unique reel-based lidding system offers food producers a wide range of benefits in terms of quality, hygiene and costs.

Our goal has always been to provide the best possible solutions. Today, we can offer solutions in a wide range of materials including 23µ MetPET, 100% PP or paper-based lids.

We always engage in a dialogue with our customers to find the solution that best meets the requirements of the product without compromising food safety and adding to the carbon footprint.

Primoreels’ unique system sets fewer restrictions and increases your options for material, logistics and overall hygiene, at a lower cost.

Primoreels is an international provider of cost-effective lidding solutions for manufacturers working in the dairy and water / juice industries.

Primoreel solutions offer a long performance-life and are a cost-effective alternative to thicker Alu die-cut lids used elsewhere in the industry.

Cost-effective liddings for dairy products

As new products are frequently introduced to the market, standing out on a crowded shelf is important. Our products are designed to catch the eye of consumers in terms of both graphics and functionality.

Our plastic solutions provide customers in the dairy industry with greater efficiency, and help avoid wasting money and materials from over-capping. Primoreels offers high-quality, innovative and flexible lidding solutions.

Retrofitting packaging machines with lidding systems

Fitted on a large number of high-capacity packaging machines worldwide, the innovative Primoreels system protects hygiene and substantially boosts production efficiencies for clients.

The system can be installed on new machines, or affordably retrofitted onto older models with die-cut / roll-stock and a preformed cups solution.

Changeover to a Primoreel lidding system can be carried out in less than four days regardless of the machine brand or its size. Each machine can be customised and has individual touchscreen controls, working independently without impeding on other units involved in the operation.

The easy-to-install solutions allow for seamless application of foil from the machine onto the intended container.

With a minimal carbon footprint and thinner materials than traditional die-cut PET and aluminium lids, Primoreels PET lids offer an economical and eco-friendly option.

Available materials can be as thin as 23µ, with each reel having a capacity of up to 60,000 lids. Despite the thinness of the material used for lids, high-quality printing can be added on an ultra-smooth surface. Another advantage is that UV-C sterilised lids significantly boost shelf-life, while stopping any contamination.

Membranes for UF feta production

Primoreel has created a membrane specifically for the packaging of ultra filtrated (UF) feta cheese.

The impermeable membrane is made of a white-voided OPP film, with added whiteness and opacity, which has substantially simplified feta production.

When salting of UF cast cheese, containers need to be turned twice and Primoreels has developed a two-part solution for this process.

The first part in impermeable membrane has been specially developed to remove the need for cheese containers to be turned halfway through the manufacturing process. The membrane is positioned on the coagulated cheese, with salt applied to the membrane. Containers can then be sealed, turned upright, and taken into the fermentation room.

The second phase deploys a new dispenser type that eliminates the substantial risk of cross-contamination that occurs during handling.

Membrane reels for cheese packaging machines

Membranes are manufactured and dispensed in reels, making them easier to apply than traditional foil strips that usually come into contact with human hands. In addition, they undergo UV treatment prior to being applied onto cheeses.

Reels featuring membranes usually have a sufficient amount of units to maintain up to eight hours of production, eliminating the requirement for membranes to be regularly refilled in machines. This method is highly efficient, safe and robustly hygienic throughout the inline filling, coagulation, cutting, and packaging processes.

Primoreels allows cheese to be cut and placed into containers before impermeable Primoreels membranes are added. Herbs, oils and other ingredients can be easily added to cheese during this process.

About Primoreels

Founded in 2008, Primoreels has its origins in filling machinery and has more than six decades of dairy industry experience.

The first product launched was a membrane for UF feta cheese production, which led to developing an advanced lidding system for dairy manufacturers that previously used Alu / PET die-cut lids or roll-stock applications.
