SIX500 can safely withstand temperatures up to 525°F for six minutes.

"SIX500, for the first time, provides FDA compliant packaging designed specifically for extreme commercial oven environments."

It is claimed to be an improved packaging solution for food processors, convenience stores and restaurant operators.

SIX500 is expected to be available for sale from September, with an aim to bring a more improved version next year.

The laminated material protects from moisture and allows food to be cooked quickly in disposable packaging.

Manitowoc Foodservice culinary innovation director Alison Cullin said: "Many operators voiced frustration on the lack of safe, highly functional, and disposable packaging options available for extreme commercial oven environments.

"Today, they use permanent ware and transfer to disposable packaging post-cooking,"

"Integrating packaging through HAVI Global Solutions as part of our holistic systems approach has raised the bar for our customers and expanded their culinary and supply chain possibilities.

"SIX500, for the first time, provides FDA compliant packaging designed specifically for extreme commercial oven environments."

Extreme commercial oven environments are an efficient method for cooking foods, such as pizza or bread.

The SIX500 packaging line is said to provide structural integrity and good release performance across several product types.

Food can be pre-packaged, cooked, and served in the same packaging carrier, saving time and labour.

HAVI Global Solutions Business Development Director J P Zurek said: "To provide the desired results on a consistent basis, the packaging needs to safely perform in a predictable manner each time.

"Conventional packaging options have not been designed to withstand the extreme conditions that can occur on some platforms.

"SIX500 not only provides optimal performance, but it has been meticulously developed and iterated to ensure all materials used are safe for the processor, operator and end customer."
