Packaging solutions provider Parkside has teamed up with chilled savoury product producer Addo Food Group (Addo) to create a sustainable reclosable pack for its Sainsbury’s mini sausage roll range.

Parkside used its expertise specialising in compostable and recyclable packaging solutions for the food and drink sector to help Addo meet its sustainability targets to reduce food waste.

The 100% recyclable PET tray and lid solution for Addo is designed to help reduce food waste by retaining moisture in the product and preventing it from going stale.

Addo Project Manager Alexandra Maudsley said the company collaborated with Parkside on a similar product, which prompted an extremely positive customer response.

“We were very impressed with the quality,” Maudsley said. “We strive to be innovators and industry leaders in the chilled savoury market and working with Parkside is enabling us to achieve that.”

The packaging solution comprises a clear tray with a heat-seal lidding film laminate with built-in reclose technology. Suitable for sealing to APET trays, the pack created for Addo also enables the consumer to avoid additional plastic such as cling film to keep the food fresh during use.

The design features improved barrier performance, which can help keep the product fresher for longer. It uses a single polymer design, making it suitable for existing waste recycling collection systems.

“We have a spent a lot of time and effort understanding the needs of both our retail customer and the consumer, and the development of this pack provides them both with added waste reduction and sustainability benefits,” Maudsley concluded.
