Market leaders join forces for Tesco

FFP Packaging Solutions, manufacturer of lidding films, and MacFarlane Labels, producer of label reseal products, have developed Esterpeel Reseal-It, a recloseable lidding system.

This system has been introduced to Tesco’s snack range of pasties, snack rolls, sausages and savoury eggs; innovation with no need for capital investment.

FFP Packaging Solutions have decades of lidding film experience, and the Esterpeel brand is known in the convenience food industry. Reseal-it is said to be the proven tamper-evident, recloseable label system produced by MacFarlane Labels.

Combined, they form a recloseable, tamper-evident heat seal lidding that simplifies and reduces packaging while being easy to use and attractive.

There are several advantages of using the Esterpeel Reseal-it system. Esterpeel Reseal-it is a ‘solution on the reel’ which means the packer can apply the film and seal the packs on a standard packing line, running at their normal speed; there’s no need for further packaging beyond the lidding film, so packaging is reduced in weight and simplified; Reseal-it is unique amongst label reseal systems in having a credible and effective tamper-evident function, and perhaps best of all, the pack is interesting, eye-catching and adds value to the products.

FFP worked closely with several producers to ensure the new packaging could run easily on their production lines, leading up to the successful mid-September launch of the new Tesco range.

Commenting on the development, Gary Tee of FFP stated: ”Resealable lidding film has a huge potential to add value and reduce packaging. Now, with Esterpeel Reseal-it, we know that we have a fantastic new packaging option for a huge variety of products.”
