Harald Saelens from Belgian firm Scaldopack tells Ben Bouckley at Brau Beviale about the firm’s innovative self-heating (quicklime) and cooling (salts) packaging for foods and beverages with a flexible twist…

“We’re one of the first companies that really heated up in flexible packaging…and we use very little packaging material,”​ Saelens tells and in Nürnberg.

“Only 15g, which makes for eco-friendly packaging, especially compared to alternatives on the market,” ​he said.

Saelens added that his firm’s first customer would launch the packaging containing soup in Belgium next year, but that the package could also be used for beverages.
