Gastro Collection: The Heat Is On

Planglow adds Deep-Fill Heat Seal Wedge to its brand new deli-style collection 

Planglow – a leading provider of compostable labels and packaging to the catering industry – has expanded its new Gastro range by adding a Heat Seal Wedge to the now 13 – piece collection.

Available flat-packed in boxes of just 500, the Gastro Heat Seal Wedge is the product for gourmet sandwiches requiring an extended shelf life – even in  small volumes.
On the exterior the product uses a striking chalk-on-slate effect that demonstrates a quality ‘Gastro’ image while an eye catching plant design states the handcrafted nature and eco credentials of your produce.

On the inside the Gastro Heat Seal Wedge has a rustic kraft inner and utilises an innovative bio-film that acts as a large viewing window and provides a superior barrier. Fully certified to the European (EN13432) norms for compostable packaging, the film is certified as home compostable too and will biodegrade in a waste water environment – this means that you can dispose of it in your compost heap. The bio-film also helps to safeguard shelf-life and joins 13 other sandwich and wrap packaging products in receiving Planglow’s ‘Fresher for Longer’ mark.

Launched in December 2012, the deli-style aesthetics of Gastro have already proved immensely popular with both caterers and consumers alike. Rachael Sawtell, marketing director for Planglow explained: “Strong provenance and artisan methods have become increasingly popular – in terms of taste, sustainability and health – they are also significantly value-adding. We have developed the Gastro range with this very much in mind, highlighting the caterer’s own use of quality ingredients and preparations and helping to create an excellent presentation for fine foods. The new heat seal wedge further compliments the already extensive range and offers another premium longer-life option for our customers”.

The Gastro Collection also includes deli-paper, wedge, snack cube, wrap, bloomer and salad packs, as well as bags, labels and stickers. All materials used to make them, including the plant based laminate, are sourced from sustainable and renewable plantations. And all Planglow suppliers are commissioned for their own pro-active environmental best practice.

The Gastro Heat Seal Wedge is available now!
