Cling film once revolutionized the way food was wrapped and kept fresh. And consumers in the 1970s discovered a new skill as they mastered the art of unrolling the film and sealing everything from fresh produce to their favorite workplace snacks. However, conventional cling film is often not recycled. This, for example, can be due to food contamination or restraints within collection or recycling systems.
Global flexible packaging and lidding films supplier KM Packaging has introduced a new alternative: home-compostable C-Cling.
C-Cling is clear, stretchy, and sticky and performs the same as conventional cling film. As well as home usage, it is ideal for the high-volume industrial packing of fruit and vegetables and other fresh produce on trays. It is also suitable for catering and restaurants.
The product is flexible in material and nature, from daily usage within catering businesses to store and transport food safely, to protecting and preserving the quality and taste of food in the retail environment. In addition, C-Cling, which is made from bio-based renewable sources, is the perfect partner for compostable trays to create a complete packaging solution.
As well as being used to wrap fresh produce, C-Cling is suitable for secondary packaging, such as pallet wrapping.
The product is part of the bio-plastic C-Range from KM Packaging, developed in partnership with Treetop Biopak, specializing in providing innovative compostable packaging solutions.
“C-Cling can be used on an industrial scale for the wrapping of multiple products and is particularly helpful when the trays are also compostable,” said Treetop owner Amir Gross.
C-Cling film complies with EC food-contact Regulations 1935/2004 and 10/2011. It also complies with FDA regulation 21 CFR 177.1630, provided it is used subject to certain advised limitations and in good manufacturing practices.
