Vacuum bags from ALLFO keep many food products fresh for longer

Every year, the food industry produces millions of tons of food, which need to be packaged for transport, storage and sale. Meat and meat products, dairy and cheese products, potatoes, vegetables and dried fruit all benefit from packaging that is resilient and yet appealing. Space-saving packaging that not only protects food but also ensures longer shelf life is more in demand than ever. ALLFO vacuum bags meet all these requirements in the food sector. The high-quality bags made of PA/PE barrier film slow down the decomposition process caused by microorganisms and enzymes while retaining important vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. Vacuum packaged foods are protected from undergoing any changes in appearance or flavour.

 

Vacuum bags also provide perfect conditions for meat maturation. Even larger amounts can be preserved in ALLFO vacuum bags. In the food sector, vacuum bags are additionally utilised for pre-portioning meat, sausages and cheese at the point of sale. Shrink bags safely and hygienically package fresh meat and meat products, frozen fish and non-ripening cheese. Multilayer bags are ideal for maturing cheese. It is very much in line with the trend to prepare tasty dishes at low temperatures in the so-called Sous-Vide process. After gentle cooking in ALLFO cook-in bags, the dishes only need to be arranged on the plate and served.

 

Our vacuum bags for food at a glance:

Side seal bags

They have proven themselves to optimally store, mature or present aroma-fresh food attractively on the shelf. We manufacture the so-called three-edge vacuum bags in various formats made of high-quality PA/PE composite film, which we produce ourselves on state-of-the-art equipment.

 

Tubular bags

For many products, perfect presentation is essential: e.g. a tubular bag without side seam clings closely to the content, accentuating the contours optimally. The ideal packaging for fresh products such as sausages additionally features an outstanding glossy finish.

 

Multilayer bags

The tubular bag’s special design has been further developed for particular applications, such as controlled gas exchange. This is relevant for the packaging of gas-releasing products, for example hard and sliced cheese as well as vegetables.

 

Shrink bags

In this sealed version, fresh or processed meat can be stored chilled for several weeks without any reduction in quality and transported safely protected from contamination. Due to optimal shrinkage by immersion in hot water or steam, this bag wraps itself evenly around the packaged goods like a “second skin”, inhibiting any loss of fluids.

Our polyamide shrink bags with PVDC or EVOH barrier provide an extremely high oxygen barrier, making them particularly suitable for packaging fresh or processed meat and meat products, frozen fish and non-ripening cheese. Your product benefits from full flavour development as well as long shelf life.

Stand-up pouches

Our stand-up pouches always remain firmly in position. Their low weight, a high barrier and excellent re-sealing properties leave nothing to be desired. The zip fastener protects your product from drying out or losing its flavour and prevents odour penetrating or escaping. Stand-up pouches are ideal for packaging liquid, pasty, granular, powdery or solid products.

 

Structured bags

FleeceVak, our innovative structured bag, ensures optimal air discharge and has been developed particularly for customers who vacuum their bags by means of snorkel-type machines or vacuum machines without chamber. The special structure on the inside of the bag is, of course, completely food-safe.

Applications:

Meat

ALLFO vacuum bags increase the shelf life of fresh meat

Meat is one of the most sensitive products as it can spoil quickly. Butchers and meat cutting companies are therefore confronted daily with the high demands of meat packaging. The packaging itself should not only look attractive, but above all protect meat and sausage products from external influences during transport, storage and in the sales counter. The increased demands of consumers in terms of product quality and versatility, product presentation and packaging handling make packaging processes a continuous challenge. ALLFO, Europe’s market leader for vacuum bags made of PA/PE barrier films, is confidently responding to the most demanding requests of meat processing companies and butchers with its portfolio.

Chequered side seal bags

The classic packaging option for meat is the side seal bag, which can also be found in butchers’ counters as a red or blue-white chequered variant. The bags made of high-quality PA/PE barrier film are available in both numerous formats and large quantities. PA (polyamide) provides an oxygen barrier and aroma protection while PE (polyethylene) ensures the moisture barrier and excellent sealing properties. Both components are vital to guarantee meat an increased shelf life and an appetizing appearance.

Meat packaged in tubular bags

A perfect presentation of meat is ensured by our tubular bags, which enable a seamless, brilliant appearance at the point of sale. The bags can be sealed on all common vacuum chamber machines and, depending on the customer’s requirements, can also be individually printed with up to ten colours.

Fish

ALLFO vacuum bags keep fish fresh

Freshly caught fish must be processed quickly in order to optimally retain its quality. Therefore it is usually processed and frozen while still on the ship. Ready meals in packaging suitable for cooking are increasingly popular with consumers, so it is hardly surprising that vacuum bags from ALLFO are also the first choice for packaging fish. The bags’ excellent sealing properties, their puncture resistance and temperature tolerances from minus 40°C to plus 121°C make them suitable for a wide range of applications. There is no risk of flex-cracking or discoloration during storage or transport, even with frozen fish.

Numerous bag types for fish

To the growing market of fresh, frozen and smoked fish, ALLFO offers a well-equipped warehouse with numerous bag types, which are quickly available in different thicknesses and sizes, including various functionalities, even in large quantities.
