Fresh produce packaging and cooking innovations to launch at New York Produce show
16th November 2016
Leading international UK-based flexible packaging technology innovator Excelsior Technologies is launching a series of new fresh produce packaging solutions at the New York Produce Show at Jacob K. Javits Convention Center on December 7, 2016.
Excelsior Technologies Sales Director Julie Eller said: “The fresh produce and on-the-go food sector is one of today’s fastest growing and exciting categories, and we are proud to launch a series of new solutions at this prestigious annual event. We combine innovation with post harvest science to maximise shelf life on prepared produce.
“Excelsior Technologies’ proven CookTECH, FreshTECH and PouchTECH flexible packaging technologies have enabled the creation of a series of innovations including PouchFresh, PeelFresh, CookFresh, Grab&Go, Snack&Go, and Lunch&Go. These lightweight convenience packs maximise shelf-life presentation and deliver a great consumer experience”.
From the FreshTECH range, CookFresh (available in pouch, laminate & lidding formats) features Excelsior’s global leading microwavable SteamFast valve technology, which allows the consumer to cook restaurant quality vegetables at home, in the pack. Offering convenience and reducing food waste, CookFresh packs mean healthy eating, as vitamin loss is reduced compared to traditional cooking processes. No washing up is a bonus! No need to cut open or pierce the pack, the SteamFast valve cooking mimics the slower processes of pressure and steam cooking but in minutes.

Snack&Go is a unique pouch design which offers an innovative and environmentally conscious alternative to bulkier on-the-go snacking solutions – ensuring no-mess, minimum packaging waste and reduced risk of product contamination. Snack&Go features a pocket to hold a variety of things such as a fork, sauce or sprinkles. Simply tear the top section and eat from the lightweight ‘pouch bowl’.

Lunch&Go is an ideal lightweight solution for food-to-go counters. Utilising Excelsior’s CookTECH technology, it offers all the benefits of Snack&Go but with the addition of Excelsior’s SteamFast valve, turning Snack&Go into a microwavable snack & go bag for hot lunches.
PouchFresh maximizes shelf-life presentation and brings convenience to the consumer with a ‘grab-and-go’ handle and re-close clip.
PeelFresh is a range of lidding products for retail trays of whole, fresh-cut and prepared fruit and vegetables. The range has solutions for PP/PS/PET/PVC and foil trays.
