Chadwicks on show at APPEX


Chadwicks, a producer of pre-cut lidding, is set to showcase its latest sustainable lidding solutions at APPEX, Australasia’s Processing and Packaging Expo, in March.

The company will demonstrate its polypropylene (PP) die-cut lidding, a mono-material solution that is 100% recyclable. PP lidding offers excellent puncture and tear resistance and is suitable for various products, including dairy, snacks, dips, and convenience.

John Harrison, technical sales manager for Australia/New Zealand at Chadwicks, says: “These lids help food manufacturers meet the growing demand for mono-material packaging designed for recycling. They also allow for energy saving as the sealing temperature of the lid is 100 degrees Celsius lower than conventional aluminium and PET lidding.”

Also displayed will be Chadwicks’ newest product development, a resealable lid. This lid removes the necessity for a plastic over-cap whilst keeping products fresher for longer.

“By offering a resealable pre-cut lid, we can help customers increase packing efficiency and reduce plastic usage,” says Harrison.

Chadwicks of Bury, headquartered in the UK, is a supplier of pre-cut lidding solutions, catering to various sectors, including food, dairy, beverage, personal care, and household products. The company has a global distribution reach and a ‘strong market presence in Australia and New Zealand’.
