Absorbent packaging specialist Sirane is targeting its new microwave film at food service firms after securing advanced orders from airlines and train operators.
The Crisp-It Light is the next generation of the microwave susceptor film that was launched for burger boxes and other fast food items.
The new film can be shaped in a range of formats and used as a wrap to avoid the need for extra packaging.
"Our new film can be made into carry bags for chips, pouches for popcorn and wraps to cook panini and sandwiches. For microwaveable frozen foods, there's no longer any need to packaging into boxes," said Sirane sales director Jeremy Haydn-Davies.
The film is made by combining the susceptor film to a clear film without using flue to create a laminate for crisping baguettes and pasties by clinging to the product in the microwave.
Haydn-Davies said that while the focus was on food service industries there were also potential applications for foods that are eaten at home or work.
The Crisp-It range also includes disks for pizzas and boards for burger buns.
