The key to value-added convenience food packaging are attractive visuals, functionality and barrier properties. Thanks to the excellent barrier properties of our packaging materials, you can capture the delicious aroma of your processed food products and also maximise their shelf-life. Moreover, the amazing variety of materials, coatings, and colours make your packaging unique. Our packaging is perfect for convenience foods such as ready meals, chilled food and sensitive products like spices.

Take environmental aspects into account by ensuring the recyclability of your packaging with our recyclable films and laminates. Make your products attract well deserved attention by utilising different materials, coatings and colours. Create a smooth surface that feels silky to the touch with our matt film or lacquer. Select a suitable look and feel, and utilise the full range of our 10-colour flexographic printing. Our HD printing technology will allow us to achieve even finer resolutions and, thus, significantly better printing quality. You can also increase your sales with various campaigns using AmerPromo and other coding possibilities.

Convenience Food Packaging

Market trends


  • Easy-open features, reclosability, microwaveable packaging and other functionalities increase consumer convenience and enhance the customer experience. Everyone enjoys a packaging that is easy to use or even has some additional features to make your everyday life a little easier.


  • The Finnish Packaging Association ran a packaging survey in 2018 which stated that 35% of the people thought that a convenient packaging raised their attention at the store shelf.


  • Both the European Union’s Circular Economy Strategy as well as the UN’s sustainable development goals are aiming to reduce food waste by 50% by the year of 2030. This will require actions throughout the food chain.



  • Sustainability is one of today’s key trends and future requirements. Recyclability and the use of recycled or renewable bio based materials are the features now sought after in sustainable flexible packaging solutions. According to the European Union plastics strategy, all plastic packaging should be recyclable or reusable by 2030.


  • Increasingly demanding recycling targets at a European level (from the current 22.5% to 50% by 2025) and more efficient Extended Producer Responsibility schemes across Europe create requirements and pressure to increase the recyclability of packaging. Amerplast has developed fully recyclable films and laminates that are recyclable in the existing recycling streams. Read more >>
