In the food industry, and especially in produce, lidding film (or top seal) has become a primary flexible packaging choice. Not only does it provide extra benefits for customers, but it creates opportunities for brands to elevate their product as well.

So, what are the benefits of lidding film?


Consumers can see the product that they're purchasing clearly through the film while keeping the package intact. Also, peel and reseal lidding film allows customers to completely reseal their produce packaging with ease.


Rather than being limited to a label on a container, lidding film has a large surface area that can enable innovative branding and maximum shelf impact.


Lidding film offers high barrier protection capabilities with the use of specialty films in production. Barrier protected film keeps produce fresh for longer and extends the shelf life of a product. Find out more about barrier protection in our blog post here.


In addition to being able to reseal the product completely, you can integrate traceability software into lidding film with the help of our specialized equipment department. This allows you to keep track of your raw materials from the time they enter your facility to when they're released into the field. Adding this software increases supply chain visibility, improves quality control, and offers your company extra protection should you have to recall any of your products.


Lidding film uses up to 25% less plastic than a traditional clamshell. At Associated, we also offer fully recyclable and sustainable film options for lidding film.


At Associated, we are dedicated to pushing the boundaries with lidding film. We have an in-house tactical team that meets weekly to progress innovations and many contacts and resources, as well as partners at the Rutgers University Food Science Department.
