Performance with Alufoil

Alufoil containers can perform in a wide variety of formats and situations. Whether it is for domestic, retail or food service environments these containers and trays offer reliable and flexible options to suit the situation. Strength to weight ratios are excellent and they can be used with confidence in hot or cold environments. Transfers from one state, such as frozen, to fully heated can be achieved without the need to transfer the contents – even for microwave options. So solids and semi-liquids can be handled with ease.

Case Study – Retail Revolution

In store delicatessen & bakeries were one of the major markets for wrinkle wall aluminium containers. But this has shrunk significantly over the last decade due to the introduction of alternative materials, which have virtually replaced aluminium. But this has necessitated stocking a variety of plastic containers for specific requirements ranging from heated products to refrigerated products.
Now an aluminium foil tray manufacturer has developed a solution as an alternative option to the various materials. The container is a two-sided,lacquered Smooth Wall Container with an inner surface which is thermosealable using peelable film - which can be used for refrigerating, freezing and heating both in traditional and microwave ovens. It is also it is suitable for acid and/or salted foods. The versatility of this solution has been immediately recognised by staff of In store Delicatessens & Bakeries. The containers, which come in six different sizes, cover any take-away needs. Another interesting factor is that the lacquered aluminium, even if more expensive than some of the plastic alternatives, is preferred by counter staff for its performance and lower storage impact behind the counter.

"Aluminium is a material you can work with – it is very formable and has an excellent printing surface. This makes it possible to develop new products and projects in which the contents and appearance of these aluminium trays go together excellently. We therefore have the opportunity to give fresh impetus to the pet food segment and to play an active role in shaping the market."
