Since 2013, Jenkins Freshpac Systems has had the pleasure in working with Smilesys who is a market leader in the development and production of re-closable systems for innovative packaging solutions for food, industrial and chemical goods. The Italian company is already present on the European and American markets with their wide range of resealable films for the packaging of tomatoes, mushrooms, salads and berries.
Resealable packaging is making its way onto the fresh produce market at a steadily increasing pace and is now being used by a tomato producer in Australia, who chose Smile LITE® to launch a new line to the market.
"Several advantages come with packing fresh products" says Ernesto Zanarella, who developed and patented the Smile Lite system together with his team. Smile Lite is made of 100% recyclable PET and thanks to its thin layers the plastic waste is reduced by 20% compared to the traditional reclosing systems. Smilesys’ experience in the field of fresh products ensures that the right materials and perforations are chosen which in turn contributes to increased shelf life, and allows us to avoid unnecessary food waste, with the re-closable label which works over 25 times.
