Sealed Air announced the expansion of the Cryovac QuickRip line of meat packaging products with a new material formulation that brings innovative easy-open technology to the pork market. Previous applications for the QuickRip bag focused exclusively on the beef category.
“This product line extension into the pork category meets demand for easier opening packaging at the foodservice and retail back of house,” said Shawn Harris, marketing director of fresh red meat for Sealed Air’s Cryovac brand. “After seeing the success of the QuickRip bag for beef applications, customers expressed great interest in packaging that offers premium product protection while removing the need to use knives or other sharp objects to open cuts of pork. Knifeless opening enhances operational safety, diminishes back-of-house cross contamination issues and reduces costly scores, gouges and cuts that degrade product quality.”
Product applications for the newly formulated Cryovac QuickRip pork bag include boneless pork tenderloin, pork roasts and more. In addition to the benefits of the easy-open feature, the product still offers the same great abuse resistance and reduced leakers throughout the distribution network. The product¹s superior shrink and optics and availability of in-line one color print provide options for marketing and brand differentiation.
The new Cryovac QuickRip bags for pork are available for order immediately at no additional costs to customers and can run on existing equipment, making conversion to the product as easy as opening the package itself. The bags are available in widths of 7 to 20 inches and lengths from 6 to 48 inches.
