Broad VSP range gives flexibility


Multi-material packaging manufacturer Linpac Packaging says it has the broadest rigid Vacuum Skin Packaging (VSP) tray range on the market today.

Fish, meat and poultry packers can choose from four tray material options ensuring they receive a solution best suited to their application. The trays are lightweight, fully recyclable and compatible with a range of high barrier, high shrink films.
They are available in mono PET, PET/PE, Barrier PP and Barrier EPS and suitable for all current VSP designed tray sealing machinery. Linpac Packaging’s continual innovation programme has enabled the company to develop a competitive alternative to the standard sheet skin packs traditionally used in vacuum skin packing. The company has developed three application styles: Normal vacuum skin pack (below the flange protrusion), protruding vacuum skin pack (slightly above the flange protrusion), and super-protruding vacuum skin pack (high protrusion above the flange).
Joanna Stephenson, Vice President Marketing and Innovation at LINPAC Packaging, said: “Our range of rigid trays for VSP applications gives our customers great flexibility in terms of pack design. They are not locked in to a particular tray, machine, material or film type and, in addition, the vacuum seal extends shelf life performance by several days minimising food waste, all of which adds value to customers’ bottom line.
“The trend towards VSP is growing rapidly, particularly in the UK.”
