Ready Meals

Many ready meals on the market are packaged using a Tray Sealing machine, which suit high and low volume food producers. Here’s how it works:

  • The tray is hand filled or filled automatically, depending on the product and volume
  • The food is packed in protected atmosphere or with “skin effect”
  • A film lid is tightly sealed onto the tray
  • A pre-printed band or sleeve can then be placed over the sealed tray

Tray sealing machines save time and money and can be tailored specifically to your products to give consistently great packs, every time.

Tray Sealing machines are also used for packaging raw meats, charcuterie and cold cuts, fish, cheeses, fresh olives, deli products, dried fruits and dips.

 Fresh fruit, produce and veg

Depending on the product, there are several packaging options for fresh fruits, produce and veg: L Sealing and Flow Wrapping being two options

Flow wrapping is essentially the process in which food is wrapped in film and sealed, either tightly or loosely depending on the product being wrapped. The produce remains fresh and protected while packaging design and branding can easily be integrated.

Flow wrapping machines are also used for fresh bread and baguettes, pies, pasties, sausage rolls, biscuits, cookies and morning goods. L sealing machines guarantee the same pressure on all parts of the film and as a result the package is completely closed and the tightness of the wrapping is consistent. Also, where the quality of film joined around the product is limited, lots of film is saved.

Meat and Seafood

Certain products must be kept as fresh and protected as possible for maintaining appeal and integrity, such as meat and fish. For this, a Vacuum Packing machine is widely used. Here’s how it works:

  • Produce is placed into a plastic film pouch
  • Oxygen is removed from inside the pack
  • The pack is sealed tightly

By reducing atmospheric oxygen the growth of aerobic bacteria and fungi is limited and prevents evaporation of components. Vacuum packing doesn’t  large machinery; for smaller producers there are versatile compact vacuum sealers that can sit comfortably on a table top, while larger units are also available for large production volumes.

Vacuum packaging machines can also be used to package cheeses, cured meats, smoked fish, even snacks and coffee. It’s worth noting too that the air compression can be altered for more delicate products.

Fresh baked goods

With bakery goods being consumed by 99% of the population, bakers are looking for more innovative products to satisfy consumer demand. From artisan breads, buns, muffins and cookies to more exotic sweet treats and food to go, bakers are keen to grab shopper’s attention.

Flow wrapping and shrink wrapping, tray sealing and banding are some of the key packaging solutions offering innovative and efficient solutions to baker’s production needs.

Flow wrapping is the process of wrapping a product in a clear or printed film. The product remains fresh and protected and package design and branding can easily be integrated for shelf appeal and customer loyalty.

Cheeses and Dairy

Dairy products can be packed in a variety of ways. From bagging, tray sealing in pre-formed or thermoformed trays, to vacuum packing, shrink and flow wrapping. Cheese needs to be hygienically wrapped and have shelf appeal for the increasingly demanding consumer. Machines to suit artisan cheese makers selling into deli or farm shop outlets might choose a small vacuum chamber, whereas larger producers looking for automation and increased output may opt for a shrink wrapping system or tray sealer (particularly suitable for softer cheeses).

Nuts, seeds, dried fruit and meats, cereals and coffee

The more niche food markets comprising everything from healthy snacks, beef jerky, nuts, cereals and even coffee, tends to package product using vertical bagging machines (vertical form fill and seal or VFFS machines).

Here’s how it works:

  • Plastic bags are constructed out of a roll of film
  • The bags are filled with the product
  • They are tightly sealed at the top (unlike flow wrapping the only seal is at the top)

Automating the process instead of putting your products together manually, like all packaging processes, will have a massive impact on your productivity, product shelf life and consumer appeal. Your products can be pre-measured using one of our Multihead Weighers for automatic, accurate and consistent dosing.
