Two-compartment Indian meal tray launched

Two-compartment Indian meal tray launched

Chilled ready meals manufacturer Bakkavor Meals, based at Sutton Bridge in Lincolnshire, has relaunched its Tesco’s Indian Kitchen Meal for One range in perforated two-compartment trays from supplier Faerch Plast.

The change of packaging format allows the microwaveable main meal and pilau rice accompaniment to be heated separately for optimum quality and taste.

Bakkavor worked closely with Faerch Plast to develop the black crystalline polyethylene terephthalate (CPET) trays for the range with an easy-snap process, made possible by a waved perforation within the pack design.

“Until recently, we used a standard compartmented CPET tray from Faerch Plast for the Tesco Indian Meal for One range,” says Bakkavor Meals’s senior process technologist Nikitta Halifax.

“As part of our focus on continuous improvement, we asked Faerch Plast to develop a perforated two-compartment tray that could be easily snapped apart, allowing the consumer to microwave the main dish and rice separately.”

There are seven meals in the range: chicken tikka, chicken jalfrezi, chicken korma, lamb rogan josh, prawn tikka masala, butter chicken and chicken vindaloo. All come with pilau rice.

Contact Faerch Plast for more information.
