Whilst vacuum pouches are a popular application for the packaging of smoked fish and other similar products, a number of other options such as thermoform, VFFS and skin film are also excellent applications. For seafood that presents packaging challenges, such as shellfish, lobsters and prawns that can easily penetrate films, we have developed a range of durable and puncture-resistant options.
Creating a shelf stable product for fresh produce is made easy using retorting in flexible packaging. The food is first vacuum sealed then heated to in excess of 120 Deg C in a retort chamber. This packaging is especially suitable for cooked and pre-prepared foods.
Stand up pouches are a light-weight and durable replacement for cans and glass jars, providing a revolutionary packaging solution for many applications. This flexible packaging offers many advantages, allowing product visibility, better health and safety in handling, reducing transport and storage costs as well as improving production line costs.
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.
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.
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.
Similar to the stand-up pouch, the box pouch adds another dimension to your shelf-life packaging. The base of this pouch has a much larger surface area which provides a more vertically stable product on the shelf.
