Supply Chain Phase


A new a dual-compartment vacuum packaging system creates the optimal conditions for maturing meat products. Fresh meat products, such as beef, can be stored “dry” in their packaging whilst increasing shelf-life.
The product is presented standing or hanging in the retail shelves which, combined with packaging transparency, helps to attract consumers.
The pack is produced from flexible films, which are tuned to the maturation process of fresh red meat. A second compartment, separated by a porous seam and covered by a pre-printed film or label, neatly collects the meat’s drip-loss by means of a special absorption pad. This ensures that the meat is stored dry and remains appealing during its entire shelf-life. It delivers excellent tender meat quality and aromatic flavour.
The TenderPac system is available on SEALPAC’s complete range of RE-series thermoformers.
