Top sealing technology specialist G Mondini-Ulma has introduced a tray skin system for use with its Evo and Trave range of machines with the aim of revolutionising the sealing of meat, poultry, fish and ready meals.
The new system produces a high visibility vacuum pack on a pre-formed tray, which is claimed to provide additional shelf-life, better meat quality and reduced packaging on a low-profile tray.
Traditionally vacuum packed products have been produced on a thermoformer, but the Mondini system offers flexibility on the types of materials that can be used. The latest range of machines offer multi-format opportunities for modified atmosphere pack tray sealing, tray skin packing, ‘super protruding skin’ packing and more.
Initially, three versions will be available: ‘standard skin’, which is ideal for low profile items such as cuts of meat and small fish; ‘protruding skin’, for ready meals, steaks, meat portions and whole fish; and super protruding for large meat joints, turkey crowns, etc.
A key benefit is that meat joints can continue maturing in the pack.
