Fresh food packaging manufacturer Linpac Packaging has added to its Freshware portfolio with new pyramid packs for the consumer snacking market.
The new vented pyramid packs have been designed for whole ‘mini-snacking' vegetables such as peppers, cucumbers and carrots and tomatoes.
Vent holes have been added to the company's conventional pyramid pack design to allow air to circulate and the food to breathe, eliminating condensation from the packs and extending the food's shelf life.
Linpac European sales director for Freshware Nick James, said: “When the food-to-go trend first took hold, it was very much focused on portability of products, ease of use and much more about indulgence — enjoying a ‘treat' whilst out and about.
“What we have seen over the last couple of years is a growing demand to cater for the more health-conscious consumer in the snacking and convenience area. They still look for the portability and ease of use factors for eating on-the-go but the types of food we are now developing packaging for is changing.”
The rPET packs are manufactured using what Linpac called “high levels of post-consumer recyclate.”
