Vacuum packing - A packing solution?

From freezers, to fryers or the handy electrical whisk; our kitchens have them all. They can save us time and money and make even the helpless cook to become something of an expert.  With this said, the commercial kitchen is no different. Bursting with machines to try to ensure ‘the best’ is offered to the customer. So why stop at just food preparation when packaging can also be made that much easier – cue the vacuum packer.

Why Vaccum pack?

Vacuum packing has long since been used to prolong the life of everyday items – most commonly perishable foods. Whether used for food packing to improve shelf life or to protect a unique magazine; the benefits of vacuum packing are often overlooked.

This then preserves the product, improving its durability and even saleability – double tick in the business world. In a growing society where use by dates have become the unwritten consumer ‘law’, vacuum packing can offer those extra few weeks life span of a product that customers will hunt the selves for.

Vacuum packing can also offer a great storage solution. By removing air, the process reduces the volume of the item which can make it easier – and less costly - to store, transport and display. This can provide a simple yet effective solution for many businesses. These handy machines can be brought in a variety of designs depending on the size your kitchen and packing needs.
