Chilled foods are practical, can be prepared and consumed quickly, and have a healthy image: Food and take-away products from the fresh convenience segment reflect the spirit of modern times. Above all, chilled food packaging must offer reliable protection against moisture and the influence of temperature fluctuations in order to keep the contents fresh. Sleeves and multipacks for chilled foods communicate important product information and serve as advertising media.
Cartonboard solutions for chilled food must fulfil the following requirements:
- Protection against breakage, buckling and crushing, as well as against taste and odour influences
- Good printability for ideal appearance on the shelf, above all with sleeves (yogurt)
- Good performance with converting and packaging facilities for efficient production
- Grease barrier for protection against annoying grease spots and discolourations
- Freeze barrier for maintaining packaging stability, even with temperature fluctuations
