Innovia Films’ specialty biaxially-oriented polypropylene films, known as Propafilm, are protecting one of the United Kingdom’s best-selling teas, Yorkshire Tea.

One of Taylors of Harrogate’s brands, Yorkshire Tea is utilizing Innovia’s Propafilm to meet its box overwrap needs.

“The Propafilm grade that we currently use on our Yorkshire Tea boxes is an anti-static, high-speed overwrapping film,” says Conrad Hart-Brooke, head of packaging at Taylors of Harrogate. “The high level of anti-static enhances machine performance and minimizes dust attraction onto the wrapped packs. This film also offers good puncture and impact resistance, and provides an excellent quality appearance on the finished packs.”

Neil Banerjee, market manager at Innovia Films, says Propafilm offers a range of packaging solutions that meet different criteria. 

“They include glossy films to enhance shelf appeal, shrink-tightening films for exceptional pack performance, high-barrier films for product protection, easy-open films and clear collation films for multipack applications,” Banerjee says. “Besides tea overwrap, Propafilm grades are used in the biscuit and dried foods, confectionery, home and personal care, and cosmetic markets. Innovia is always open to new challenges, so if you have a particular requirement I am sure we will be able to find a solution.”
