UK-based Parkside has developed a new self-venting steam bag for frozen vegetables.

The new Parkscribe Steam bag is said to provide a more flexible, microwavable solution than existing food packaging applications.

Parkside sales head Paula Birch said: "More consumers shop ‘for tonight’ or for the next couple of days, which has created a clear demand for portion-sized, fast and convenient home cooking solutions.

"Parkscribe Steam packs can be manufactured to incorporate any number of compartments, giving brands and retailers complete flexibility."

"Parkscribe Steam packs can be manufactured to incorporate any number of compartments, giving brands and retailers complete flexibility, whilst enabling consumers to choose the number of individual packs they wish to use, cutting food waste and addressing portion control issues.

"Parkscribe Steam utilises a special food safe lacquer and a lasered registered seal in the pack that degrades under heat and pressure to self-vent, allowing the contents to be cooked in a microwave without the consumer having to burst, cut or open the pack prior to cooking."

Parkscribe Steam can be integrated on existing packaging lines, thereby eliminating the need for investment in additional machines.
