Nowadays, both producers and consumers are aware of the need to reduce the volume of packaging that later turns into waste, but producers still want to show their brand somewhere on the packaging, even when foods such as bananas, carrots or beets are sold in unwrapped bunches. Now, a new food-grade adhesive tape has solved the problem.
Irplast’s new food-grade adhesive tape has been approved for direct contact with foods with peels after it has been proven to leave no harmful residues behind. An independent laboratory found that there is no contamination or organoleptic change to the food after having been wrapped using the adhesive tape.
As for branding, the manufacturer’s name can be printed directly onto the tape, eliminating the need for secondary packaging. The residue-free tape sticks to a variety of fruits and vegetables, but peels away cleanly. As a result, there is no need for clumsy straps or elastic bands. This new solution not only reduces waste as a result of discarded packaging, but will reduce packaging costs and improve efficiency.
