UK-based KM Packaging Services Ltd. extended its range of ovenable films with the new Superguard line, designed for home cooked-style convenience food.
The enhanced films are suitable for oven or microwave cooking, withstanding temperatures up to 435°F. Manufactured from polyester-based laminate with ovenable adhesives and inks, the films can be printed using high-definition flexo technology, thus improving on-shelf appearance and reducing packaging waste.
The films are designed for use on flow-wrapping machines or can be supplied as pre-made bags, enabling food manufacturers to easily seal whole meal and portion-controlled meat, fish and sauce-based products into pouches suitable for conventional ovens. Products can go straight from the chiller cabinet or freezer to oven, and will safely self-vent steam during cooking without the need to puncture the film. Meats and fish packed with sauces also effectively allow the contents to marinate while packed and during cooking.
