LIDD®

INTRODUCING LIDD® – the revolutionary (patent applied for) film lidding development for the ready meal packaging market

A printed top web is laminated to a base film, suitable for use in either a microwave or oven, eliminating the need for secondary printed sleeve packaging.

The reduction in packaging creates a nominal 10% cost saving as well as a 45%+ saving in production energy and weight during transit. This reduces the carbon footprint of the pack, whilst increasing the consumer appeal of the solution through maximization of the marketing real estate. Reverse printing of the film top web allows for branding to be clearly visible on the front of the pack, as well as product information to be printed on the underside.

 

LIDD® SAFETY

Product safety is front of mind with LIDD® design – the highly printed top web is safely separated from the bottom film layer prior to cooking ensuring that film printing ink potential migration is eliminated.

LIDD® delivers a uniquely different looking pack to drive sales with no compromise on graphics or legally required information and is a cost effective lidding solution that can be used on standard tray sealing lines without modification.

COMPOSTABLE

compostable

From coffee pouches to confectionery packaging, the Parkside Apex innovation team has developed a range of paper and film barrier duplex and triplex lamination films under the brand Park-2-Nature® that are fully accredited to EN13432 and Vincotte OK Compost Standards for both home and industrial composting of packaging.

  • Excellent graphic shelf appeal comparable to standard high quality flexible packaging laminates to drive retail sales
  • Oxygen and moisture barrier performance delivers extended product shelf life to minimise packed product waste
  • Lightweight flexible design offers a lower carbon footprint solution compared with heavier packaging formats
  • Compostable flexible packaging is a credible alternative to landfilling and incineration for non-recyclable packaging designs and environmentally sensitive brands
