Top-seal film can reduce packaging materials by as much as 42%

Proseal worldwide is a supplier of tray sealing machinery and allied equipment for the global soft fruit sector. Proseal enables customers to pack their products in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way.

Because of the topseal principle, plastic consumption is already reduced to a great extent. The move from the traditional clip on lid to a top-seal film for soft fruit punnets and trays can reduce packaging materials by as much as 42% and has the potential to offer a saving of up to 10 Tons of plastic for every 1 million trays sealed. For a next step customers can also think of the use of trays of sustainable materials such as cardboard and pulp.

Live carton-board traysealing at the booth
Examples of these sustainable packaging solutions of for instance Stackpack, which can be sealed easily, will be shown at the Sismatec booth B-04 in Hall 7.1b at the Fruit Logistica exhibition. The company will also show that using a reclosable film can reduce food waste. At the booth, there will be a Proseal GT4s automatic tray sealer, capable of sealing up to 140 packs per minute. For the show the company has developed a special seal tool for sealing these carton-board trays.  

Sismatec booth will be at Fruit Logistica in Berlin, and can be found in Hall 7.1b, stand B-04.
