Advanced Clysar bakery film is the first shrink film engineered to provide precise air and heat evacuation for optimal freshness of bulk-trayed retail baked goods.

CLINTON, IA – It’s not a blurry photo – there’s an actual plastic shrink film wrapped around the container keeping us from the doughnuts!

Retail bakeries now have a high-performance shrink film tailored to the precise air and heat evacuation needs of freshly baked donuts, cookies, cupcakes and more.

Clysar HPGFP-BK bakery film is custom-designed for the specific needs of warm, fresh-baked goods packed in bulk trays for shipment to retail. Advanced microperforations in the film control exposure to moisture and air, allowing better cooling and keeping warm bakery items fresher, longer.

“We worked closely with our bakery customers to develop a packaging solution that can make a meaningful difference in how their baked goods go to market,” says Clysar vice-president of sales Vicki Larson. “Clysar bakery films are tested and proven in bakery operations to deliver a new level of freshness, aesthetics and packaging process productivity for a wide variety of bulk bakery items.”


Clysar bakery film shrinks beautifully, creating a tight, even wrap around bulk bakery trays for a clean and appealing presentation. The films are designed to run flawlessly on existing equipment for excellent productivity with minimal waste.

Clysar bakery shrink films are made to FSSC 22000, ISO 9001:2008 and FDA/USDA standards to assure they exceed customer needs for safe, reliable bakery packaging quality.

Strong, lightweight Clysar bakery film delivers exceptional source reduction, productivity and aesthetics compared to the polyethylene shrink films widely used to package retail bakery now.

At 45 gauge, Clysar bakery film uses up to 40 per cent less material, shrinks tighter with better clarity and runs at higher speeds with fewer changeovers than polyethylene shrink films.
