KreCook™ ovenable barrier bags are a special development of high barrier substrates incorporating special sealing layers offering very high temperature resistance for dry roasting applications. 

The bags are suitable for both vacuum seal and MAP gas flush applications. For thermoforming, flowrap or lidding direct-to-oven applications, please check our KreCook™ oven-ready films

Krehalon ovenable packaging is suitable for all fresh red meat, fish and poultry applications. All products within our ovenable packaging range can be cooked for up to 2 hours at 200°C and conform to all UK & EEC food in contact and migration standards. Copies of certifications are available on request. 

Features and benefits:

  • One-touch direct-to-oven packaging: You need just one bag to take your product from factory to plate.
  • Safer handling: With a fully sealed bag there is no need to handle food until it’s time to serve it, reducing the risk of bacterial contamination (Campylobacter).
  • Improved flavour: KreCook™ bags allow for improved heat penetration in product resulting in improved taste and flavour.
  • Reduced cooking times: KreCook™ bags are high temperature-resistant bags which can help reduce cooking time by a third.
