With less time available, consumers tend to buy convenience food that is fast to prepare but still healthy. Steaming in the microwave is one of the healthiest ways of cooking because the short cooking time preserves vitamins and minerals while optimally retaining flavour, colour and texture. Mondi SteamPack unites all these requirements and offers food producers the utmost flexibility.

Mondi SteamPack is a microwaveable packaging with a self-venting function and is suitable for frozen food and for chilled or ambient products in combination with hot melts. SteamPack can also be used for high barrier modified atmosphere packaging (MAP). In addition, the steam valve can be applied in a number of different packaging solutions, including pillow bags, stand-up pouches, lidding films or VFFS (Vertically orientated Form-Fill-Seal ) solutions.

For end-consumers SteamPack allows healthy and convenient cooking in the microwave. No puncturing or opening is needed, the preparation time is shorter, with flavour, texture, minerals and vitamins also preserved.
