Vacuum Packers

Vacuum Packers

There are many reasons why a food business might decide to use a vacuum packer. One of the main commercial reasons to pack food under a vacuum or a modified atmosphere is to extend the shelf-life of the product. For a business, this has important financial benefits.

Vacuum packing involves removing air from the packaging that surrounds the food and preventing its return by an airtight seal. In a typical vacuum pack, the packaging material is moulded closely around the food. Removing air from product packaging changes the micro-environment surrounding the food, inhibiting the growth of the majority of spoilage organisms and pathogens that grow in the presence of oxygen.

Other claimed advantages of vacuum packing include: freshness and flavour is maintained for three to five times longer than conventional storage materials; texture and appearance is improved; moist foods do not dry out; rancidity of foods with high fat is delayed; meat and fish marinate quickly; wastage is reduced.

Modified atmosphere packing is a process or condition where the gaseous mixture within a food pack is different from that of the atmosphere. This can involve removing the air and replacing it with an inert mixture of gases. The combination and mixture of the gases used will vary according to the product.
