From 18 to 20 October 2017, ILIP will present Life+ system and Food2Go range in Madrid

Bologna (17 October 2017) – One of Europe’s leading manufacturers in the sector of thermoformed plastic packaging for fresh produce and food service, ILIP will be attending Fruit Attraction between 18 and 20 October, in Hall 7, Stand 7B13, and simultaneously at Eat2Go (Hall 4, Stand 4A13), the exhibition dedicated to take-away and food to go.

At Fruit Attraction, ILIP will be one of the protagonists of Pasarela Inova, the space dedicated to innovations in the fresh produce sector, with Life+, the active packaging system for fruit. Already presented this year at the sector’s main exhibitions, the system is based on the Emap system (Equilibrium Modified Atmosphere Packaging), and ensure a specific gas mix inside the packaging thanks to the synergistic effect between an active pad, an unvented punnet and a heat-sealed laser-perforated film. In this way, Life+ system increases shelf life and allows for the products’ freshness, weight and organoleptic properties to be maintained for longer when it comes to delicate products such as small fruit, strawberries, cherry-tomatoes, grapes, cherries, and fourth range fruit, simultaneously reducing food waste.

International Postharvest Unlimited Conference held by the International Society of Horticultural Science, in the session titled “Postharvest Technologies: CA storage, MAP and Ethylene Management”, scheduled for Thursday 19 October starting at 9:30 a.m. There will an intervention by the University of Turin, which worked with ILIP to verify that the system worked.

This year, however, ILIP will be going on a double date: it will also have its own stand at the first edition of Eat2Go, where it will introduce its own Food2Go range, consisting of containers, salad bowls, and hinged lid containers for hot and cold use, in addition to PET cups, lids and inserts for add-ins of the Klear Cup range for on-the-go use. Jessica Zeppieri, Foodservice Packaging Export Area Manager, will be illustrating the on-the-go range at the seminar “Food2Go no significa tener prisa, sino otra manera para vivir el día”, scheduled for Wednesday 18 October, at 5:30 p.m., at Hall 4.

“Fruit Attraction is a crucial European event for the fresh produce sector, in particular for Spain, one of our reference markets,” comments Roberto Zanichelli, ILIP Sales & Marketing director. “This year we will also be attending Eat2Go, an event that intercepts important trends such as that of on the go consumption. As manufacturers of plastic packaging and disposable tableware, we are extremely focused on this subject.”
