an aerated aesthetic

LIDTEC®’s superior gloss and transparency combine with its anti-fog formulation to ensure outstanding optics for any trayed food product, whilst its permeable properties allow the products to breathe. The high percentage of free shrink allows the film to fit trays tightly without wrinkles and without causing distortion to the tray format, for an even better visual aesthetic. To seal the sale, high definition printing can be applied to LIDTEC® to incorporate logos, nutritional information and barcoding, negating the need for secondary labels.

Breathable LIDTEC® is especially suited to shallow trays containing protruding food products due to its elasticity. This can make the portion sizes appear more plentiful, as well as contribute to a stable positioning of the item in the tray, preventing movement within the pack. This also means that trays can be stacked one behind the other on shelves to save space in stores whilst maintaining pack presentation.


Drum tight

Flush hermetic seals are produced with LIDTEC® on a variety of tray materials, preventing leakage and protecting the enclosed food from contamination. This feature also avoids any product discolouration occurring.

Full BRC accreditation is guaranteed from the manufacture of LIDTEC® through to storage and distribution. Plus. Bollore lidding films are fully compliant with EU food contact material regulations to guarantee your full peace of mind.
