Alcan Packaging introduced SteamRight hermetically sealed packaging to provide innovative solutions for the growing steam-in-bag category. Laser scoring technology makes this structure unique, providing package-enhancing benefits that offer frozen food processors the opportunity to build greater consumer appeal into their brands. In addition to creating steam vents with precise tolerances that ensure perfectly cooked food, SteamRight packaging's proprietary laser scoring system produces easy-open functionality, allowing consumers to effortlessly tear open the package.
The frozen food industry is realizing significant growth in microwave steam-cooked products - notes John McCurdy, Business Development Manager at Alcan Packaging. - Consumers want convenient meal solutions found in steam-in-bag cooking. Our SteamRight pouches can deliver hassle-free preparation, easy opening convenience and portion control to help brands differentiate in the category.
Other features of the SteamRight pouch include up to 10-color flexographic printing that commands outstanding shelf appeal. Rugged structural specifications mean SteamRight packages stand up to punishing frozen food distribution environments for reduced waste and improved food safety. The SteamRight steam-in-bag is ideal for a variety of frozen food applications, including meals, side dishes and snacks.
