Laser scoring technology for the SteamRight hermetically sealed bag provides (1) easy-open functionality so consumers can tear open the package effortlessly, and (2) precise tolerances on the steam vents to make sure steam releases correctly during microwave heating. Printed in up to 10 colors (flexographic or gravure), SteamRight pouches attract attention at the point of purchase and are suitable for frozen food applications, such as meals, side dishes, appetizers and snacks.
According to John McCurdy, business development manager at Alcan Packaging, “The frozen food industry is realizing significant growth in microwave steam-cooked products.
