Omni Xtra®+, Berry Global’s high-performance PE cling film will be the key focus of the company’s stand at the forthcoming Marca by BolognaFiere Private Label Conference and Exhibition, to be held in Bologna, Italy in January 2024

Ideal for a variety of fresh food applications, including fruit and vegetables, meat and poultry, deli and bakery products, the new Omni Xtra+ film offers improved elasticity, uniform stretching behaviour, and enhanced impact resistance compared to its previous versions. These improved mechanical properties have also allowed for the production of a thinner overall film than traditional PVC alternatives – delivering a weight reduction of over 25% compared to PVC – while maintaining high levels of strength and puncture resistance.

In addition to its lighter weight, Omni Xtra+ is also recyclable where PE film collections exist and is in line with current European recycling guidelines, having received certification of recyclability and compatibility from RecyClass and Interseroh, both leading industrial organizations working to achieve plastics circularity.

Equally important, Berry’s advanced manufacturing process has created a much higher clarity film than traditional PE cling films, including strong anti-fog and condensation properties, that are comparable to PVC. This enables products to be displayed to full advantage on retail shelves.  For more visit berryglobal.com
