Tri-Seal, part of Tekni-Plex has been granted a patent for its Sniff Seal technology, which can be used for a variety of product categories including dairy, confectionery, bakery and beverages.
The technology is a liner which enables scent permeation through an induction seal closure liner without affecting the seal or compromising the contents. There are many instances where consumers want to know what a product actually smells like before purchase. Unfortunately, there are times when consumers peel back seals or remove fitments to experience the scent before buying. When a package is returned to the shelf in a compromised condition, it is no longer saleable. So the retail industry experiences a significant amount of loss annually. Sniff Seal liner eliminates this problem because it provides an olfactory experience without removing the seal. This means the tamper evidence remains in place and the product integrity is maintained.
