“The VFFS machine has brought benefits to three key areas: Firstly, the airtight seal is so good that the shelf-life of products has now been extended from 3 months to 1 year which has made us more attractive to big distributors, wholesalers and supermarkets. Secondly, we will be able to produce packs with printed film and date coding which means products look far more professional and trustworthy which is important from a consumer point of view. Thirdly, the speed of the equipment, we can achieve 22 bags a minute, which is fantastic for us”.
