United Closures and Plastics is satisfying catering industry needs with a re-launch of its 80mm catering jar closure incorporating induction heat seal technology (IHS) normally used in subsidiary Zeller Plastik’s dispensing closure for the retail food sector. The updated version also compliments sister company Massmould’s standard wide mouth closure range.

The new closure moves away from the traditional IHS liner wax laminated to a reseal liner as this system can be problematic where catering food packs are water cooled after filling. In addition to solving a serious technical problem, the new closure and lining is claimed to deliver cost benefits.

Discovery Foods has already teamed the closure with its 2.3kg Texan Ranch Style Salsa packs.
