Produced with only a 0.25mm excess on pot size, die-cut lids provide a much neater and more professional pack than other sealing processes such as ‘cut & seal’ systems.

Certain products, particularly non-food items, require a specialist lidding solution such as recess lids which offer easy application and are 100 percent tamper proof.
