From world-class breathable packaging that extends the life of fresh produce to maximum presentation protective packaging for confectionery and snack foods – Convex Plastics really pushes the boundaries of film performance to get the right result for food packaging.

By combining our own internally extruded polyethylene and breathable films with some of the world's most technologically advanced biaxially oriented polypropylene (BOPP) films, we can provide a customised combination of high performance film properties, laminations and barriers – that will deliver the specific film properties you need and give you a competitive edge.

The world leading BOPP films we work with includes a growing range of cutting edge five-layer co-extruded films with different coatings on each side of the film. These coatings can include Acrylic coatings for improved aroma protection, PVDC coatings for high barrier to oxygen, and aluminum coatings (termed metallisation) for superior moisture barrier properties.

And when it comes to maximising shelf appeal and branding, we really are the ones to see. Our high quality flexographic printing has won us six gold medals in the prestigious New Zealand printing industry Pride in Print Awards since 2002 – and our printing team works really hard to make sure that everything we print meets that exacting gold medal standard.
