FreshWave Breathable OTR Specific Films
The need for dependable breathable lidding film technology is expanding exponentially as the market for healthy and natural value added meal items continues to grown. Breathable film technology gives excellent solutions for Fresh Cut Produce, Value Added Fresh Produce and Fresh Seafood industries.
FreshWave Breathable OTR Specific Films are engineered to allow for specific OTR (Oxygen Transfer Rate) breathable requirements that are product specific. FreshWave is also available with a proprietary Steam Technology feature. See FreshWave Steam Film. FreshWave Lidding Films can be engineered to include both Steaming and OTR Specific features.
Note: Contact your Go Green Sales Representative with complete product and shelf life requirements. Each product must be engineered specifically for these requirements. General guidelines for produce and vegetables can be downloaded.
Each fresh cut product has a specific breathable specification that results in extended shelf life performance as well as ensuring safety and freshness. FreshWave Breathable films provide the targeted OTR intake for your package and in a true breathing environment which allow other gases (e.g. ethylene and Co2) to be released or exhaled from the package. Without this gas release, the atmosphere inside the trays becomes saturated with these gases, which can block the intake of any additional oxygen release product inside the sealed packaging resulting in an anaerobic condition, which would be potentially harmful to the consumer.
The FDA's breathable industry standard for Fresh Seafood is a "minimum of 10K" or 10,000 OTR. FreshWave Breathable 10,000 OTR film, when sealed to GO GREEN PP trays, provides the necessary breathable requirement. Just as in Fresh Produce applications, FreshWave allows for the release of gasses that are generated with most Seafood products, at the same time replenishing the package with the required amount of fresh oxygen or OTR. Proper breathable film is a critical component of the package to prevent the generation of potential harmful bacteria that can result from poorly packaged or mishandled seafood. Note: Fresh seafood that is frozen prior to shipping and then "slacked off" or thawed on the retail shelf is still considered "Fresh Seafood". The proper breathable environment needs to maintain the minimum 10K for Fresh seafood OTR industry standard requirement.
