Meat Packaging Solutions

Over the years, we have continued to improve our packaging technology for poultry and meat. Meat packaging needs to be puncture-resistant due to the bones included in some meat cuts. Vacuum sealing is also vital to maintain freshness.
Some of our practical meat and poultry packaging solutions include:

If you need compact meat packaging, try our stand-up pouches. Their design stacks well against other bags, enabling you to save space. These heat-shrink packages suit smaller meat cuts like beef jerky or chicken fillet.
Meat and poultry brands often use flat bottom bags for two purposes. First, it creates more space for the product, giving it a carton-like feel but with better materials. Second, there is a larger area for branding to be printed on. Both reasons make the flat bottom bag a compelling choice.
3-side seal bags are compact yet rigid packaging solutions for carrying weighty meat. These bags will keep their shape even after several weeks in the fridge or freezer.

Ease and Convenience

Make sure your packaging is easy to use. Trust us—no customer will spend more than a few minutes opening any type of package.

Product Protection

Shelf life is crucial when it comes to meat and poultry products. You need to ensure that it is safe to consume. To protect against air, you can use vacuum packaging. Using the right barrier film is important when packaging meat products.

Resealability

There are instances when the product cannot be fully consumed in one sitting, and some packaging options cannot keep the goods fresh. That’s where resealable packaging comes in. This allows for repeated opening and closing of the bag without sacrificing shelf life or freshness.
