FFP Packaging Solutions, the leading manufacturer of lidding films, and MacFarlane Labels, producer of label reseal products, have together developed Esterpeel Reseal-It, a secure, reliable recloseable lidding system that has been introduced to Tesco’s snack range of pasties, snack rolls, sausages and savoury eggs; innovation with no need for capital investment.
FFP Packaging Solutions have decades of lidding film experience, and the multi-award winning Esterpeel brand is both well proven and trusted throughout the convenience food industry. Reseal-it is the proven tamper-evident, recloseable label system produced by MacFarlane Labels. Added together they form a recloseable, tamper-evident heat seal lidding that simplifies and reduces packaging while being easy to use and attractive.
There are a number of important advantages of using the Esterpeel Reseal-it system. Esterpeel Reseal-it is a ‘solution on the reel’ which means that the packer can apply the film and seal the packs on a standard packing line, running at their normal speed; there is no need for any further packaging beyond the lidding film, so packaging is reduced in weight and simplified; Reseal-it is unique amongst label reseal systems in having a credible and effective tamper-evident function, and perhaps best of all, the pack is interesting, eye-catching and adds value to the products.
FFP worked closely with a number of producers to make sure that the new packaging could run easily on their production lines, leading up to the successful mid-September launch of the new Tesco range.
Commenting on the development, Gary Tee of FFP stated: ‘Resealable lidding film has a huge potential to add value and reduce packaging. Now, with Esterpeel Reseal-it, we know that we have a fantastic new packaging option for a huge variety of products.’
