A microwavable tray/lid package for steaming produce is the newest addition to the award-winning Simple Steps line of heat-and-serve packaging from Sealed Air’s Cryovac brand. The Simple Steps Lidstock package is comprised of a clear, rigid polypropylene tray with a non-barrier easy-open sealant and a permeable anti-fog coated lidstock.
Fresh produce can be steam cooked in the microwave in minutes, making it a convenient and healthy meal solution that’s easy to handle after heating. Simple Steps Lidstock packages can run on a range of existing equipment. The new offering is available in a variety of sizes, and both the lidstock and the trays come from a single supplier. The new package also allows for printing on the film, representing a cost savings for processors as there is no need for a sleeve around the package.
