Sealed Air Corp., Elmwood Park, N.J., expanded the easy-open and safety-enhancing benefits of its Cryovac Grip & Tear bag at the retail level. Cyrovac Grip & Tear cheese packaging

The Cryovac Grip & Tear Small Tab easy-open vacuum bag is said to reduce packaging material by up to 20% compared to some easy-open rollstock formats.

Designed for small portion deli items, including cheeses and smoked and processed meats, the Cryovac Grip & Tear Small Tab bag features a tab that opens packages in one quick motion. As a result, consumers no longer have to rely on knives or scissors to force product entry, eliminating a source of both common kitchen injuries and cross-contamination. The smaller easy-open tab at the top also creates a more visually appealing package for smaller products.

Each bag employs a skin-tight shrink and transparent gloss to offer consumers a clear look at packaged products. Additionally, the package’s exterior film accommodates 360-degree, distortion-free graphics that expand branding capabilities and ensure clear labeling.
