Linpac Packaging is set to expand its LeanBake bakery packaging range later this year with new portion packs for the sweet confectionery food to go market such as individual cake slices and muffins.
The packs have been designed for the on the go consumption market and will sit alongside the recently launched Freshware range in retailer chilled cabinets, as well as in the bakery aisle.
The new LeanBake portion packs are designed with lightweight bases and lids and are available in a variety of sizes and colours, in both single and twin food portion formats. The packs are suitable for individual cake or pastry slices, muffins, tarts, choux buns and donuts etc.
Alan Davey, director of innovation at Linpac Packaging, said: “Individual portion packs are becoming increasingly common across all sectors as retailers and manufacturers respond to trends such as the rise in single-person households, increasing health awareness, on the go consumption and the need to reduce food waste.
“At Linpac we have a long history of supplying packs with convenience in mind for a variety of foods packers and retailers, as well as foodservice operators. Our experience in this area has meant we have developed a range of packaging solutions to reduce the problem of food spoilage and ensure bakery items in particular remain fresh, sweet or crispy as needed. The addition of portion packs to the LeanBake bakery packaging range is a natural progression for Linpac so that we address the demographic trends across all our sectors.”
