Injection moulding for packaging has been consistently developed over the past few years. In the food industry, this type of packaging continues to gain new market shares. A growing number of companies are taking advantage of this technology along with in-mould labeling, which integrates both the plastic container and labeling into a single manufacturing step in the package manufacturing process. We develop our packaging solutions in close cooperation with the customer, resulting in unique convenience packaging shapes that stand out on the supermarket shelf and give products a fresh image that appeals to new consumer target groups
From the Weidenhammer acquisition came innovations such as the modern PermaSafe® barrier packaging, a result of in-depth research and extensive development in-house that has been acclaimed as the next-generation tin can.
PermaSafe® is clearly superior to cans made out of tin, aluminum or glass when it comes to convenience, freshness and display qualities.
The revolutionary combination of in-mould labeling, sealing properties and injection moulding opens a new dimension in product concepts and applications.
PermaSafe® is designed for all processed foods. Our customers’ markets include:
- Meat products and fish
- Ready-to-serve meals
- Sauces and soups
- Baby food
- Fruits and vegetables
- Pet food
