Applications For Food Packaging
Food packaging is crucial for a number of reasons, which is why we offer various solutions.
Why Do We Package Food?
Food products need to meet certain standards to ensure they remain fit for consumption. In this endeavor, food packaging plays an integral role. It protects food products from contamination and ensures they don’t spoil. As a result, food can be stored for longer periods of time, can be more easily transported and has a longer shelf life.
Considering the number of resources involved in food production, it’s critical to be able to prolong the life of products, as it makes it easier for businesses to achieve a good return on their investment. Moreover, thanks to food packaging — such as plastic vacuum food packaging — we can keep the amount of food waste our society produces in check. That’s crucial, as organic waste has a high carbon footprint and a higher environmental impact than packaging waste.
We manufacture three categories of food packaging materials — foil barriers, metallized barriers and clear barriers. Here’s a quick overview of the benefits of each type. Click a product for more information.
Foil Barrier Benefits. Foil barriers provide protection against oxygen, as well as moisture, odor and other factors that could contaminate a food product.
Metallized Barrier Benefits. Metallized barriers are water resistant and provide good protection against moisture and oxygen. Our product line includes a range of products — including metallized barrier stand up food bags and zipper bag food packaging.
Clear Barrier Benefits. Clear barriers protect food products from oxygen, moisture and odor while at the same time allowing consumers to see the actual products.

Our wide selection of oxygen and moisture barrier materials means we have a product to suit your needs, from dry foods and powders to meats and vacuum packaging applications.
