Curwood EZ Open Block-Tite bulk cheese packaging

Tuesday, 14 May, 2013 | Supplied by: Bemis Flexible Packaging Australasia

Until now, the process of opening and stripping bulk cheese blocks has required sharp knives and physical force due to the skintight package, puncture-resistant film and heavy weight of the product itself. Curwood’s EZ Open Block-Tite bulk cheese packaging transforms the opening and stripping process with easy-open, peel-away film.

Claimed to be the first bulk cheese package to incorporate an easy-peel feature, EZ Open Block-Tite packaging brings together high-abuse Block-Tite barrier bulk film and Curwood’s EZ Peel opening feature. With the EZ Peel feature, processors simply lift the flap on the block’s back seal using special grasp notches, then peel the package open for clean, fast, complete film removal. The opening initiates an easy linear tear, which allows the film to pull away effortlessly and cleanly in a straight line, following the block shape of the cheese.

While the opening feature adds to convenience and efficiency, it also improves safety. The peel-away feature eliminates personal safety hazards associated with using sharp knives to cut and remove the film, reduces the potential for cross-contamination of cheeses via non-sterile knives and removes the potential for film shards left on the cheese, which could then be ground or sliced into the product.

The product’s format allows original cheese manufacturers to add the integrated peel-open feature without sacrificing machine speeds or package integrity. The EZ Open Block-Tite film machines like non-peelable films - no machine or speed adjustments are required.
