Single- and multi-layer materials (low- and high-barrier, respectively) are utilised; both-sided and X-Code printing. HD+ flexo printing is normally requisite while gravure printing is utilised for premium product lines.
As suppliers to the largest brand owners within the confectionery field, consumer behaviour and preference trends are closely monitored and packaging solutions are adapted accordingly. Single- and multi-layer materials are requisite while both HD+ flexo or gravure printing are applied, with cold seal and matte lacquer in registration.
Baked Goods and Cookies
Ultra-high-quality printed films for VFFS and HFFS packing lines, including wicketed bags. Through the selection of proper materials we achieve maximum product protection and competitive prices.
The preservation of flavours, aromas and consistency in dry nuts, dehydrated foods and beverages, sauces, ready meals, spices, condiments and food additives requires use of high-barrier laminates. HD+ flexo printing is normally requisite; gravure is utilised for premium product lines. Opaque, semi-transparent and transparent films are used to enhance aesthetic appeal/marketability.
We offer solutions that ensure freshness and flavour preservation in combination with usability via use of duplex or higher-order laminates in a broad series of morphologies and sizes.
Packaging materials suitable for mechanical resistance, usability and ultra-high-quality printing. For frozen vegetables low permeability towards light is crucial to prevent surface deterioration. HD+ flexo printing combines high-quality end-results and affordability and is normally utilised.
Coffee and Hot Bevarages
Coffee beans/ground coffee and instant coffee granules require high barriers towards moisture, oxygen and light, whilst simultaneously preservation of aromas is paramount. Triplex film structures (Alu-containing or Alu-free) are normally utilised in a diverse array of morphologies (stabilo, quad/doy pack, stick, brick, vacuum).
Dairy and Meat Products
For this ultra-sensitive product category we suggest materials that ensure airtight weld sealing, low permeability towards gasses/moisture, transparency/high clarity, mechanical resistance and integrity preservation at near-zero temperatures; three- or five-layer laminates are normally utilized either as top-web films or for the construction of pillow packs.
Stick packs can constitute the ultimate solution for q wide range of applications, such as solid and liquid foods, pharmaceutical and cosmetics/personal hygiene products. By transforming the product’s presentation and morphology, an alteration in functionality/usability and overall consumer experience is achieved. At the same time, laser perforation confers easy-open capability on the laminates.
A. Hatzopoulos S.A. applies flexo-printing to its Alu lids in order to combine cost reduction (in terms of origination) with high quality (comparable to gravure). We offer solutions for the majority of heat-sealing applications, even under high-temperature and high-pressure conditions. Alu lids are compatible with PP, PS, PET, PVC, and PE/ALU containers while they can also be customized so as to be suitable for pasteurization or sterilization.
