Since 2014, PACOON has been working on the topic of functional packaging for microwave products. The collaboration with the Danish Technological Institute combines our expertise from technical understanding of the DTI microwave and our sustainable and convenience-oriented thinking. The result was a wide variety of possible applications for new and truly functional products that are not associated with microwaves today.
Certainly the biggest surprise is always the frozen pizza as a crisp snack after 9-11 minutes 'baking time' depending on the desired cooking level. However, since we are not only interested in technical practicability but also in convenience, differentiation from the competition and, of course, sustainability, PACOON has been working on creating an all-round solution. Not only the presentation of the package, but also the handling and disposal of the packaging should be significantly simplified. Because not only the eye is involved, but also the good feeling of not polluting the environment is to be reassured here. With this in mind, many more products are to find their way into the microwave and onto plates that are not associated with the microwave today.
These could be breads, rolls, burgers and baguettes that are freshly baked in just a few minutes, ready meals that are not just reheated but specifically cooked, roasts that are prepared much faster, and many more. In addition to the sustainable claim to packaging, microwave products also offer a very simple advantage: the energy consumption of preparation is often up to 80-90% lower than oven preparation. And the time saving is usually 50-80% compared to the conventional oven. So if you're short on time or don't have an oven in reach, look forward to new possibilities.
And if you as a manufacturer are now curious about the huge market potential that can be unlocked with the new functional packaging, then send an e-mail or give us a call!
