MultiVac Packaging Concept at Anuga

04 September 2013

GERMANY – Visitors to the Anuga Food Service trade fair in Cologne can find out all about the MYLAR COOK packaging concept at the MULTIVAC stand.

The packaging specialist with an exclusive distributorship for the thermoformable films in Europe, Oceania and America, will demonstrate live how food items are packaged in MYLAR® COOK films on a thermoforming packaging machine. Visitors can also sample various menus and bakery items which were prepared in MYLAR® COOK films.

MYLAR COOK films are thermoformable films, which were specially developed for the preparation of food in the high temperature range up to 218°C.

The particular product is cooked in the oven or in the microwave in its sealed pack. Thanks to this process, the aromas, vitamins, minerals and inherent moisture of the product are largely retained during the cooking process.

The use of salt and spices can be reduced by up to 20 per cent.

The oven-ready packaging for chilled or frozen food products is based on the Mylar COOK concept, produced by the joint US and Japanese venture, DuPont Teijin Films.

The film structure is designed in such a way that the seal seam of the pack opens by itself in the oven once a defined pressure is reached, allowing the cooking vapour to escape. As a result of this, a dry phase arises from the wet cooking cycle, which means that the food is browned in the open pack.

Compared to other oven-ready packaging concepts, MYLAR® COOK requires no additional valves. “This makes this design clearly more cost-efficient and achieves higher quality”, explains Valeska Haux, marketing director at MULTIVAC.

The packaging concept can be seen on the MultiVac stand at Anuga in Cologne, Hall 07.1/A098, B099.
