KM Packaging's K Steam Film Improves Shelf Life

PETERBOROUGH, UK | The newest addition from KM Packaging Services Ltd. to its K Steam range not only increases the shelf life of fresh produce but also reduces the in-pack cooking time. This new K Steam packaging film is ideally suited to microwave steam cooking of fresh vegetables, fish and seafood; it enables pressure to build within the tray during cooking, ensuring shorter cooking times combined with retention of excellent flavor, moisture, texture, and nutritional content. Easily peelable seals following cooking are a given, as is security of the seal during distribution and retail.

In addition, K Steam allows fresh vegetables to "breathe" for longer through the processes of packaging, distribution, and retail, ensuring longer shelf life and increased freshness. The new film can be supplied as peel seal or weld seal, with or without KM’s anti-fog – a range of innovative treatments headed by market-leading flagship product KM Klarity+.

KM Packaging’s Commercial Director Graham Holding explained: “In today’s pressurized retail environment, shoppers are looking for the best solutions that will save them the most time, but with no detriment to the eating experience in terms of flavor and texture. Our K Steam film offers the best of both worlds: improved shelf life combined with reduced cooking time, so everyone wins.”
