KM Packaging Services Launched a New Steam Venting Product

UK-based innovative packaging solutions provider KM Packaging Services has launched a new steam venting product.

With this new product, the company has enhanced its range of feature-led specialist lidding films, catering to an increase in demand for added value features in ovenable meals and snacks.

The new film is compatible with polypropylene trays with which the company has worked for many years.

The product has been made available as peel seal or weld seal, with or without KM's anti-fog. The film is also available with a high oxygen barrier where venting holes are coated to prevent air from getting in or out.

The coating softens on microwave heating which helps in ventilation.

There is also the provision for creating pepper pot holes in the centre of the lid to allow steam to escape while keeping the seal intact.

Speaking about the product, KM Packaging's commercial director Graham Holding said: "Steam venting in itself is not new but we have worked very hard to produce innovative products that maximise the benefits of the process without compromising the products that the film is designed to protect.

"Our new steam venting film not only helps to maintain the freshness of frozen or chilled ready meals, but also encourages faster cooking. It's not just for lidding either - we can also supply roll-fed bags for vegetables, and any of the films can be printed to promote branding whilst saving on unnecessary additional packaging."
