Packaging fresh produce is essential for delivering high quality food that meets and exceeds your customers’ expectations. 

Why use Food Packaging Machinery?

Food packaging machinery plays an important part in protecting the product from damage, bruising or crushing, during transport and handling. This makes the produce easier to transport, ensuring the product is at its best when it reaches the customer and prevents waste.

Protects the product

Increases shelf life

Food packaging machinery can help increase the longevity of the product. Certain packaging such as modified atmosphere packaging (MAP) can help to slow down the ripening process, reduce microbial growth, which can accelerate fermentation and cause disease. This allows for extended storage and transportation times, without compromising quality.

Food safety

Packaging acts as a barrier against dirt, dust and other contaminants, which if consumed can cause sickness. Naturally no one wants that! By ensuring appropriate packaging and top hygiene standards, you will build your reputation as a provider of high quality goods.

Enhances product

Attractive packaging enhances the look of the product, making it easy to display on shelves and include the relevant allergen, nutritional and cooking information. 

Eye catching packaging will help with marketing and merchandising your product, so it stands out on the shelf, appeals to your customers and boosts sales.
