Curwood: Vacuum packaging keeps meat red
An FDA- and USDA-approved technology from Curwood, FreshCase® packaging is designed for case-ready meats to deliver the flavor, quality and extended shelf life of vacuum packaging and the fresh red color consumers prefer.
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.
