Vacuum packaging is the method used to remove air from a pack of food before it is sealed. The reason for vacuum packaging is to extend the shelf life of food items and to maintain the quality and flavours of the food.
Vacuum packaging can maintain its freshness and flavours 3 to 5 time longer than products stored in conventional packaging.
Vacuum packaging reduces atmospheric oxygen, limiting the growth of aerobic bacteria or fungi and prevents the evaporation of components in the food.
Vacuum packaging is widely used to extend the shelf life of many food lines, including meats and fish that will be stored in a freezer.
Reduce the likelihood of freezer burn that would be a certainty when food items are simply wrapped in the cling film that supermarkets commonly use.
Vacuum packaging is commonly used to store dry foods over long periods of time These dry goods would include cereals, nuts, cured meats, cheese, smoked fish, coffee, to name a few.
