Packaging Example - Microwaveable Pack for Fresh Fish & Sauce
- The Brief
- To design, develop and manufacture a microwave pack which has 2 compartments. One with sauce and one with fresh fish. When cooked the two compartments need to become one so the sauce infuses with the fish and cooks together.
- Design a product to meet this criteria
- One bag - 2 compartments
- Withstand Microwave temperatures
- The bridging seal needs to be able to rupture whilst cooking whist the outer seals must not fail.
- The inner seal must rupture at around 90 seconds of cooking
- The pack when it becomes one compartment must vent when at full pressure.
- Must be easily sealed in the factory when it is being packed with contamination on the seal
- One bag with 2 compartments
- Film structure selected to withstand microwave temperatures
- Accurately controlled time/pressure/temperature 'rupture' seal combined in the process of manufacture
- Set to rupture @ a nominal 90 seconds
- A second vent valve constructed through clever engineering adding no cost to the pack.
- Thick seal layer designed to be easy to seal in the factory when being packed.
