Available in forming and non-forming films, vacuum skin packaging, trays and semi-rigid films with VSP and ground beef chubs. Films run on horizontal, VSP and chub equipment. An EZ Peel® opening feature can be added which allows even the most form-fitting package to open effortlessly without knives or scissors. FreshCase® vacuum packages use up to 75% less packaging material than MAP packages. By eliminating MAP gases, it can nearly double the amount of meat transported per truck.
