Chadwicks to showcase sustainable lidding solutions at APPEX

Chadwicks is set to showcase its latest sustainable lidding solutions at APPEX, Australasia’s Processing and Packaging Expo, in Melbourne from 12–15 March.

The company will demonstrate its polypropylene (PP) die-cut lidding, a mono-material solution that is 100% recyclable. The PP lidding is designed to provide good puncture and tear resistance and is suitable for various products, including dairy, snacks, dips and convenience.

John Harrison, Technical Sales Manager for Australia/New Zealand at Chadwicks, said: “These lids help food manufacturers meet the growing demand for mono-material packaging designed for recycling. They also allow for energy saving as the sealing temperature of the lid is 100°C lower than conventional aluminium and PET lidding.”

Also on display will be Chadwicks’ latest product development — a resealable lid. The lid is designed to remove the necessity for a plastic over-cap while also keeping products fresher for longer.

“By offering a resealable pre-cut lid, we can help customers increase packing efficiency and reduce plastic usage,” Harrison said.

Harrison and Chadwicks’ Chief Technical Officer, Paul Whelan, from the UK, will be at stand C001 at APPEX.
