Winsford-based International Paper Foodservice Europe has launched a paper lid for its range of paper board food containers.
This allows foodservice operators to opt for a totally paper board packaging solution for takeaway soup and other hot or cold food products.
The firm believes the design of the new paper lid differs to others currently on the market. A one-piece construction, the lid has one layer, compared to traditional types with two layers.
In addition, instead of the small vent holes that usually feature on top of the lid, IP’s paper lid has pleats that sit up against the rim of the food container. This is said to allow just enough steam to escape so the lid will not bend or cave-in when hot food is placed in the container.
Furthermore, the lid features a ‘tuck-under’ so when it is placed on the container it snaps onto the rim to help secure it.
The lid is available in two stock designs: Carte Blanc (unprinted) and Translations, a stock design featuring words to describe culinary flavours and tastes in four different languages.
