tesa’s innovative Lift & Reseal, a high tech tape developed for the effective reclosure of flexible packaging, made a successful return to Packaging Innovations London recently, with a new addition to its family.
Its second public appearance in the packaging trade arena, tesa® Lift & Reseal generated interest across many different segments of the food production and retail markets, including a major UK retailer, a pet food manufacturer and a tea company, as well as confectionery and fresh vegetable packaging companies.
tesa’s Lift & Reseal is now in use around the world with major retailers and brand owners specifying the system on a wide range of products and pack sizes, from small, high value snacks to economy budget products.
Its newest member, tesa Lift & Reseal ‘Fresh’, has been designed for short shelf life products and was showcased on the tesa stand alongside the in-line dispenser which delivers the spool wound tape directly to pack.
The in-line application works with a range of film based packaging solutions, including pouches, sacks, pillow packs, flow-wraps and quad-stabilo packs, giving consumers the ability to reseal the pack for the lifetime of its contents, with approximately 20 effective resealing actions.
The company is now developing packaging solutions for manufacturers and retailers in the UK, Europe, Russia and Japan, delivering competitive edge through the consumer benefits of enjoying fresh food even across extended periods of use and storage.
Peter Spencer, tesa’s Specialist Segment Manager, Manufacturing, comments “Packaging and resealing solutions are key to winning and retaining customers of convenience food products. With factors such as quality, freshness through a product’s ‘life’, accessibility and ease of use influencing the purchasing decision, it’s easy to see why innovation in this area is so important.”
Through the tesacohesion™ customer care programme, food package providers benefit from an end-to-end installation and commissioning service, including provision of tape dispensers on a free-of-charge basis. As part of this service, customers can be assured that the dispenser will be integrated into their packaging line within a day without any adverse effect on running speeds.
For providers of packaged goods, the availability of dispensers offers the final element of production efficiency that completes the picture. tesa systems are now the definitive reclosure tape engineering solution for the industry.
