Vacuum Films

Vacuum packing is a method of storing food which can extend its life by up to five times. The packaging creates an airless environment to prevent food from spoiling.

This is achieved by:

  • Preventing the growth of microorganisms
  • Removing atmospheric oxygen
  • Limiting the growth of aerobic bacteria or fungi
  • Preventing the evaporation of volatile components

We offer a comprehensive range of over 100 sizes of vacuum pouches, with features including:

  • Various gauges / microns
  • Tinted materials
  • Tubular pouches
  • Boilable ‘Sous Vide’ pouches
  • High puncture resistance bone guard pouches
  • Gold back

Uses and Applications

Long term storage of dry foods: Nuts, cereals, cured meats, cheese, smoked fish, coffee, crisps.

Short term storage of fresh foods: Vegetables, meats, liquids i.e. soups

Frozen foods: Vacuum pouches prevent freezer burn by shielding food from exposure to the cold, dry air. Freezer burn occurs when the surface of frozen food becomes dehydrated, leading to a leathery appearance and an impaired flavour.
