Pliant Introduces Packaging Technologies for the Food Service Industry
Flexible Films Help Processors Maintain Product Freshness and Meet Sustainability Objectives
Schaumburg, IL (August 16, 2007) - Pliant Corporation, a global leader in blown, coextruded films for flexible packaging, introduces its line of engineered films for bulk food and liquid packaging applications. The line includes the company's economical over wraps, high-impact frozen food films and bulk liquid packaging films.
Pliant's films are engineered to reduce flavor and aroma transfer through packaging to ensure that products are kept fresh during distribution and throughout product use. This is especially important to manufacturers offering products that contain fresh ingredients, which are increasingly popular on menus.
In addition, Pliant's technologies allow processors to offer their products in a more convenient packaging format while protecting product freshness. By using pre-portioned flexible pouches for toppings, soups, sauces and syrups, food service operators can provide consistency in flavor and portion size.
Pliant's engineered films also enable manufacturers to provide cleaner and more convenient access to products as well as a more compact way to store ingredients than traditional canisters. In conjunction with a resealable closure or fitment, food service operators can use small portions of bulk products while protecting the freshness of the remaining contents and reducing food waste.
By using flexible packaging for bulk food and liquid applications, manufacturers can meet sustainability objectives through packaging material reduction. A commitment to using products packaged with less material allows food service operators to incorporate business practices that promote social responsibility.
"Greater convenience, maintaining product freshness and sustainability are major trends driving all markets," said Randy Scott, vice president of corporate marketing, Pliant. "Flexible packaging allows manufacturers to address each of these issues in a positive way, which helps build brand preference and customer loyalty."
Pliant's high performance packaging films can be used for dry and liquid products used in the food service industry and wholesale retailer market including: soup, syrups for fountain drinks and juices, marinated products, sauces and toppings applications as well as fresh produce.
