UK-based packaging manufacturer Linpac has created an innovative modified atmosphere pack (MAP) for Young’s Seafood’s new range of beer-battered cod fillets.

Used to pack two fillets, the new MAP features a specially designed newspaper print on its film lid and tray.

The newspaper graphic is laminated with a  transparent polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) sheet during the tray thermoforming process.

The MAP was developed in partnership with Young’s Seafood’s packaging team.

"We’re delighted to have delivered a solution that is reminiscent of classic newspaper print."

Linpac account director Andrew Wilkinson said: “This was certainly a fully collaborative process. It was important to create a seamless look and we managed this by working closely with our customer, Young’s Seafood.

“As a complete pack solution, it was critical we worked as a cohesive team with our print partners, Parkside Flexibles, as well as our LINPAC film business colleagues in Pontivy, France.
