KP Australia packs prevent food waste

At AUSPACK 2022, Klockner Pentaplast (KP Australia) will be showcasing its latest packaging innovation for the sustainable protection of fresh foods that prevent food waste and extend shelf life

The KP Elite offers a modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) solution for fresh protein that delivers end-to-end sustainability. The award-winning product is made with up to 100 per cent recycled PET, which is recyclable, highly efficient, reduces food waste, and extends shelf life.

The KP Evolve will also be on show, which is the company’s vacuum skin tray packaging solution that uses up to 100 per cent post-consumer recycled PET. It also preserves taste and texture and extends shelf-life.

Visitors can also see the KP MonoSeal, the company’s top range of sustainable PET base rigid film for form, fill and seal applications. KP MonoSeal is a mono PET film that is fully recyclable, with the strongest sealing capability in the market and is seven per cent lighter than multi-layer films. It is ideal for fresh food applications – from protein to and cheese to pasta.

Finally, the company’s KP Zapora will also be highlighted, which is its innovative padless tray technology, cleverly designed to remove the need for absorbent pads for fresh cuts of protein. The features in the base of the tray capture and retain liquid, and it is more sustainable because it’s easy to rinse and recycle without any mess.

KP Australia will be exhibiting on Stand F020 at AUSPACK 2022, to be held at the Melbourne Exhibition and Conference Centre from 17-20 May. To register your attendance click here.
