Details

UK flexible packaging producer Ultimate Packaging have created a film working together with Innovia Films UK that can extend the storage/transport, on-shelf and in-home life of fresh produce and therefore help to reduce food waste.
The film is a laminate structure made from compostable components taken from renewable resourced materials.  It is a strong film with good gloss, clarity and seal strength that can be made into bags or used as a lidding film.  Viridiflex can be surface or reverse printed.
The film has been tested for use with various type of fresh produce.  The film is perfect for use to extend the shelf-life of Jersey Royal, new and delicate crop, lose skin potatoes, sprouts, parsnips and some soft fruits.  Viridiflex can also be laser perforated to further aid the shelf-life of various types of fresh produce.
