How does FlatMap® work

With FlatMap®, sliced products are packaged safely, under highest quality, and in a striking manner. The product is placed on a flat cardboard carrier and securely sealed under modified atmosphere. Consumer-friendly opening of the pack is ensured by a peel tab. As an option, reclosable films can be used for the FlatMap® packaging system, to allow for optimal freshness until the very last slice. Supported by an attractive design, sliced products are ready to serve from their packaging on the table.

Easy separation

The cardboard carrier is coated with a polymeric protective layer that provides a reliable barrier against fat, moisture and oxygen. This allows FlatMap®, in comparison with other modified atmosphere packaging, to save up to 75% in plastic. After taking out the product, the thin polymeric layer is easily removed from the cardboard carrier, to allow for separate disposal and optimal recycling of the various parts: the liner and film (plastic), as well as the carrier (cardboard).
