Extending the shelf-life of chilled meats has long been a driver for improvements and innovation in barrier technology. Staple formats in this category include high barrier vacuum or shrink pouches and thermoformed packs.
One challenge that has always presented in packaging meat is preventing bone puncture. We have developed the Casguard range of films and bone-in bags to reduce the risk of puncture and prevent food wastage.
Packaging for bone-in meat products that enables an extended shelf-life by protecting from punctures and maintains a high-quality product has long been a challenge.
We offer three bone puncture solutions – clear puncture resistant film, waxed cloth and high abuse puncture resistant bags. Each of these applications are tailored to different bone-in needs.
Thermoforming films offer another cost-effective way to package products on the line, horizontally forming the pack, filling it and then sealing it. This option can be revolutionary for a growing business that needs to deliver products to a wider market and still maintain shelf-life.
This packaging option has a wide range of applications but is a great way to showcase your products at the same time as keeping them in good shape. The formed container is generally transparent or semi-transparent and the freshness is maintained with a durable, flexible sealed lid.
Skin films are an ideal application for meat or seafood packaging, allowing the product to be clearly seen by the consumer for ease of choice. The product rests on a piece of paperboard or preformed tray and is covered by a thin film of transparent sheet film.
Grab N’ Go
The Caspak Grab n Go pouches are thin, durable and strong, allowing significant heat from the warmer to permeate all sides to provide optimum temperature management of the cooked food. These pouches are also ideal for cold application use in fresh produce packaging.
