Food packaging

EVAL™ preserves the flavour and the quality of the food for an extended period of time.

Flexible structures and coextruded film for lamination

Food packaging should not only keep oxygen out and lock aroma and MAP gases in, but it should also look attractive at the point of purchase to give customers an extra incentive. Packaging has to be light in weight yet strong enough to maintain all its powerful characteristics during transport or handling.
