Already used by Larsen Danish Seafood for its portions of marinated Mackerel Fillets, the new AMPET packaging concept is microwaveable and withstands retorts and autoclaves.
It has been tested by Faerch Plast in applications such as a tray for diced beetroot, corn, peas and any other small food elements. A sweetcorn product concept for single-serve portions of corn, packed in the AMPET container, features a built-in strainer to allow ease of serving from microwave to table.
“The latest AMPET technology is a unique possibility for food producers to differentiate their products, and at the same time save a considerable amount in packaging cost compared to traditional ambient sector packaging,” said Jens Bornstein, managing director, Faerch Plast.
Mr Bornstein pointed out that the taint from AMPET is minimal, which makes the new container concept suitable for delicate foods as well as more robust-flavoured ones. Unlike traditional cans, AMPET is suitable for storing in the refrigerator after opening.
“As I see it, the environment, the consumer and the producer gain from this new concept,” he added.
