i2r adds new profiles to premium Eclipse range

Market leading aluminium foil tray manufacturers, i2r Packaging Solutions, has added two new profiles to their popular Eclipse range – a unique collection of black and gold lacquered, aluminium foil containers designed for the premium ready meal sector.

The additional trays take the range to 11 containers in various dimensions, which cover all different portion sizes and increase commercial choice.

The Eclipse containers complement high quality ‘ready to cook’ convenience products, including red meat, poultry, fish, vegetables and even desserts. Designed to provide remarkable sturdiness, the range ensures consumer confidence throughout the storage, cooking and serving process.

The range offers a number of unique advantages, including improved corrosion resistance against certain food types with a pH level outside the range 4-9, the prevention of food sticking to the container during cooking and a smooth rim that can be lidded with film to provide a leak proof pack to extend shelf life – this can be extended further by gas flushing if required using M.A.P.

Being 100% recyclable, Eclipse containers include a clear recycling logo as a call-to-action, reminding the consumer not to dispose of the container as part of their normal refuse, but to recycle wherever possible.

Commenting on the new additions, i2r’s Alan Taylor, head of sales – international, said: “It’s great to see Eclipse doing so well, particularly in the US where sales are currently strong. The two extra profiles help increase the depth of this luxury range, but we would be more than happy to create a bespoke product if a specific size is required – we’ll even emboss the product with a particular logo if required.”

i2r recently announced that it is investing in new process lines and tooling to expand their wrinklewall range. The move follows increased demand internationally and in the UK market and will boost capacity and i2r’s product range by a further 20%.

Operating as part of the Italian Laminazione Sottile Group, one of the leading global suppliers of aluminium products, i2r manufacture a comprehensive range of wrinklewall and smoothwall semi-rigid aluminium foil containers used throughout the food industry.
