MILTON KEYNES, UK - Waddington Europe, a division of Novolex, is adding to the TamperVisible range of protective packaging products with a Hot Fill option. 

TamperVisible Hot Fill can withstand temperatures of up to 185 F° (85°C), making it a convenient packaging option for sauces, soups, noodles, pate, ready meals and desserts such as steamed puddings, while also being microwavable 

"Our new TamperVisible Hot Fill line makes no trade-offs — we combine food safety and hot-packaging performance with recycled materials made for the circular economy," said Eduardo Gomes, managing director at Waddington Europe. "Our in-house innovation team was tasked with providing a more convenient and sustainable option for the food and retail sectors, and they answered the call." 

Made from high clarity rPET (recycled PET), the TamperVisible Hot Fill line offers superior shelf appeal and a clearer view of the contents. Additionally, TamperVisible Hot Fill is available in four recycled content blends, from a minimum of 30% to Waddington Europe's full Eco Blend™ 100 packaging made from 100% recycled content and which is also 100% recyclable. Branding and recycling information are displayed via a patented "clip on" decoration, making for easy and correct separation and recycling. 

The TamperVisible range of products is designed for consumer peace of mind, reassuring the end user that the food inside is as safe as the day it was prepared. A snap mechanism on the corner of the pack must physically be broken to access the lid opening, making an attempt to open the package visible to a consumer.
