UK-based speciality packaging manufacturer Parkside has developed a new reclosable share bag for crisps producer Seabrook Crisps.
The new bag is designed to be peeled open and re-closed to keep produce fresh for longer.
Suitable for the snack market, the new packs will be available on Seabrook’s Lattice Cut range.
The bag was manufactured using laser-scribing technology, which can create integral openings of any size, shape or position for packaging applications.
Seabrook Crisps has also partnered with Parkside’s ‘advanced packaging expertise’ (APEX) innovation team, which addresses packaging issues and creates functional, fully printed prototypes on-site.
Parkside sales director Paula Birch said: “The APEX innovation team, based at our site in Normanton, West Yorkshire, manages projects from concept to consumer.
“The creative suite allows us to demonstrate our capabilities whilst working closely with our customers to ensure we have clearly understood their needs and the problems they face in taking a product to market. The brands that have visited the suite already have been very impressed with the approach that we take.
“It opened October 2015 and already we have had around 30 brands visit us and created more than 3,000 samples since January."
