MADISON, WI—Continuing to expand and enhance its food packaging lines, Placon announced it is rolling out its new anti-fog lid technology on its entire line of PET (Polyethylene terephthalate) cold deli food packaging products.
Placon, a U.S. thermoformer of custom and stock food containers, retail and medical device packaging as well as recycled PET materials says its new anti-fog technology will help minimize lid condensation formation, providing excellent product visibility in cold food merchandising displays.
Typically, fogging in food packaging applications occurs when products such as salsas, salads and other high moisture content foods are merchandised or stored in a cooler environment such as a cold display case.
Placon’s crystal-clear, anti-fog lids are specifically engineered to bead moisture build-up, allowing consumers to easily view the container’s contents.
Placon director of stock products Jeff Lucash states: “Having the deli market’s most reliable, clear lines of thermoformed food containers has always been one of our top priorities, as has our focus and commitment to the sustainability and recyclability of our packaging.”
Produced with Ecostar RPET-F Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved for direct food contact extruded sheet from curbside collected post-consumer bottles and thermoforms, Placon’s PET deli food containers are made with 100 per cent recycled materials that are 100 per cent recyclable.
