Reepack ReeForm Thermoformer Series

The Reepack ReeForm Thermoformer Series is another option for ready meal packaging applications. Thermoformers allow for processors to eliminate trays from their storage space, material spend, and create a reliably sealed flex-flex or semi-rigid package for their products.

In addition to tray sealers and thermoformers, Ossid offers high speed print and apply labelers for integration into existing or new packaging lines.

Material Considerations for Ready Meal Packaging
