Klöckner Pentaplast bring fresh take to Protein Packaging at the 2019 Annual Meat Conference in Dallas

Gordonsville, VA – March, 2019 – Klöckner Pentaplast Food & Consumer Products (kp FCP) will be attending the Annual Meat Conference 2019 in Dallas, TX to exhibit fresh packaging solutions made for the protein market. The focus will be on the new Evolve S VSP (Vacuum Skin Packaging) and the Elite® recyclable MAP (Modified Atmosphere Packaging) which offer unique opportunities for retailers and brand owners.

In addition to the increased shelf life that VSP packaging provides, Evolve S is made from up to 95% recycled post-consumer PET content which offers a sustainability benefit that customers are looking for in today’s retail environment. Evolve S also offers a significant improvement in vacuum skinning cycle times over standard VSP trays and was designed for rPET or PET applications incorporating a peelable top film.

The Elite protein tray and film is also made from up to 95% post-consumer PET recyclate and is fully recyclable allowing it to be used for food grade packaging again. Retailers can expect high clarity for improved presentation with maximum strength and minimum weight as well as excellent shelf life. The LINtop HSF/LSF Lidding Film for the Elite tray securely seals at high speeds and allows full color printing with high anti fog properties.
