    Omori's reclosable packaging introduces a shift from traditional thermo packaging.

Represented by Perfect Automation, Omori’s latest introduction to the Australian market is a reclosable packaging solution. The Omori Bellpack transforms traditional flow wrappers into an “advanced and eco-friendly solution”. The company says it enables significant cost savings and a substantial reduction in plastic usage, particularly for the deli meat and cheese sector.

Omori's reclosable packaging is aimed at creating a shift from traditional thermo packaging, and to play a role in reducing the product's environmental impact.

The packaging itself is tailored for tamper resistance and, Omori says, guarantees the longevity of the product within. Accompanied by a reclosable label, this packaging design enables consumers to preserve the freshness of the goods and prevent dehydration.

Omori says the Bellpack Flow Wrapper boasts the capability to incorporate ultrasonic sealing, ensuring optimal speeds while delivering the perfect seal for superior product protection. Perfect Automation will be conducting live demonstrations of the product at APPEX 2024, presenting the Reclose Bellpack with ultrasonics.

Some of the benefits Omori highlights include:

  • Plastic reduction, achieving a 50% plastic reduction compared to classic thermo packs
  • Protection against product dehydration even after reuse
  • Extended shelf life with rest oxygen of 0.3% achieved
  • Less energy consumption
  • Cost neutral transition with life saving benefits
  • Reduced labour and maintenance costs
