Lids come in all shapes and sizes and are made from many diﬀerent materials. A lid can be on a shoebox, a biscuit tin or a yogurt pot. For the dairy and food sector particularly, many of them are made using aluminium foil, or combinations of materials which include an alufoil layer. There is a long history of innovation and sustainable development for these products.
But alufoil lidding solutions do not just seal things in, they also keep nasty stuﬀ out, thanks to their barrier properties. In addition they oﬀer puncture resistance to help safe transportation. At the same time they must look good to enhance the impact of the overall pack and the brand.
