In response to the rapid growth in the reseal label market, FFP Packaging Solutions have, in partnership with Macfarlane Labels, installed Reseal-It die-cutting and label application equipment in their slitting department to manufacture tamper evident, reseal lidding film that is supplied on the reel, ready to run with no need for line modification.
FFP have manufactured lidding film under the Esterpeel brand for more than thirty years. Esterpeel With Reseal-It is a printed lidding film that features the well-proven, tamper-evident, reliable reseal system developed by label specialists Macfarlane.
Key to the success of the system is that it is supplied on the reel, ready to run with no line modification necessary, allowing manufacturers to introduce this high added-value feature to a wide range of products, from snacks to confectionery to prepared meats.
Although Esterpeel With Reseal-It has been successfully used for some time, this new investment by FFP reflects the developing market for resealable packaging and their willingness to invest for the benefit of their customers. FFP are now able to flexibly offer customers resealable lidding films, efficiently manufactured on their Northampton site.
Commenting on the investment, Peter Dundas, FFP’s Managing Director, said, “As a business, FFP will continue to develop new ideas that benefit our customers, and we believe that one of the best ways we can do that is to work with strategic partners who already have great innovations for the market. This is an extension of the great relationship we already have with Macfarlane”
