Manor Bakeries is using Propafilm FFX26 high-barrier film to wrap its new Mr Kipling Cake Bites at speeds of 360 pieces per minute. “The films’ outstanding performance minimizes product waste, reduces set-up times and significantly cuts down on the amount of line supervision and adjustments required,” says Alasdair McEwen, Innovia Films’ market manager, Biscuits & Bakery.
A biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) material, Propafilm FFX is coated on one side with a unique water-based low-temperature sealing coating for high-speed running, and on the other side with water-based high-barrier polyvinylidene chloride (PVDC) for protection from moisture, oxygen and aroma taint. Mr Kipling Cake Bites are available in the UK in three flavors: Caramel, Lemon and Strawberry & Vanilla. Each carton contains 15 individually wrapped, bite-sized sponge cakes.
