The firm said that the film is suitable for the packaging of meat, produce, dairy items, refrigerated and frozen foods, puddings, applesauce, desserts, wet and dry foods.
Milan Moscaritolo, senior director of sales, Toray Plastics (America), said: “Toray is an established innovator of value-added packaging film structures and the new production capacity allows us to present an enhanced and expanded lidding platform and serve our customers better.
“Barrier performance, economic value, and the availability of specialty lidding films in varying widths when they are needed, afford customers a distinct competitive advantage.”
The company is a subsidiary of Toray Industries, which has annual sales exceeding US$19bn.
