Packaging with a block-shaped foodstuff-product
Packaging (10) with a block-shaped foodstuff-product (12) is such that a blank on a film-shaped packaging material (14) has at least one layer wrapped in a wrapping direction forming an overlapping region around four successive sides (A, B, C, D) of a block-shaped foodstuff-product (12) and is folded over two parallel opposite lying sides (E, F). For the purpose of opening the packaging, the film-shaped packaging material (14) is separable by pulling an opening flap (16) starting from an overlapping region along a tearing strip (30) in a direction opposite that of the direction of wrapping. The packaging material (14) having at least one layer is made up of a substrate material (18) with at least one polymer film oriented in the direction of wrapping, and the tearing flap (16) is formed by a part of the packaging material (14) in the overlapping region, whereby the tearing flap (16) with side-limiting edges (17) defines the breadth (e) of the tearing strip (30) that can be removed from the packaging material (14) in the direction of orientation of the polymer film.
