Linpac and Norway’s Leroy Seafood Group will produce a range of resource-efficient sushi convenience packs for Spanish retailer Mercadona.
Made from laminated polyethylene terephthalate (PET) with a printed film base tray and a clear anti-fog PET lid, the range comprises single and double portion and family sized packs to contain ready-to-eat maki, nigiri, sashimi and Japanese salads.
Linpac has also developed a total pack solution that taps into the on-the-go snacking market by including internal cavities for wooden chopsticks and condiments.
These features ensure neat, hygienic presentation of the contents and facilitate quick and easy dispensing and consumption for the consumer.
A variety of raw fish, cooked fish and non-fish sushi and sashimi will be packed into the trays, for purchase on the same or following day, to comply with food safety regulations.
The offer is currently on sale in 16 Mercadona stores in Madrid, Valencia and Southern area.
Due to a successful trial period, progressive implementation is expected from early January 2017.
