In recent years, there has been an increased consumer demand for sustainable packaging. In response to this trend, SEALPAC have adapted their EasyLid® design to allow for optimal recycling capabilities.

EasyLid® is a consumer-friendly packaging solution as it is designed to be resealable for customer convenience.

The EasyLid® design combines lidding and sealing in one simple step, with a reclosable snap-on lid functionality. EasyLid® is also identifiable by its additional perforated ring compared with the common sealing edge.

More recyclable packaging with a 100% polypropylene solution

The growing concern of sustainability is pushing food packaging suppliers to offer more recyclable alternatives. We’re pleased to announce that the SEALPAC EasyLid® design is now available to purchase as a 100% polypropylene (PP) solution.

Since all materials used for the tray, top film, and in-mold label are produced from mono PP, this allows for optimal recycling capabilities. Using mono-materials in production makes the recycling process more efficient, as the process of collecting and sorting materials into relevant categories is simplified.

Recent consumer demands are in favour of more sustainable packaging, as consumers are now more likely to purchase products for its planet-friendly packaging. Presenting your product in the new EasyLid® mono-plastic design will help you to satisfy these new demands and even boost your sales at retail.

Investing in mono tray sealing is the way forward if we are to achieve the UK Government’s commitment towards making all plastic packaging on the market either recyclable, compostable, or reusable by 2025.
