Flowrapper meets growing demand for cook-in-the-bag chickens

Ulma Packaging is targeting poultry processors with equipment that enables cook-in-the-bag chickens to be manufactured.

Pre-packaged, cook-in-the-bag chickens have become increasingly common in supermarkets as part of a strategy to reduce food poisoning associated with the high levels of the bacterium campylobacter found on fresh poultry in the UK.

Designed so that consumers can pop chicken into the oven for cooking without having to handle the raw poultry, Ulma’s horizontal flowrapper, the Artic Quad, creates polyester ovenable material or barrier laminate material in quad and pillow pack formats with modified atmosphere packaging for extended shelf-life.

Once the chicken is wrapped, with or without a tray, the machine profiles and seals film on four corners for a box-like effect, which allows suppliers to print on four sides of the pack.

Ulma supplies a range of packaging equipment, from individual items of machinery to complete automated lines. This includes thermoformers, tray sealers, horizontal flow packers and vertical form, fill and seal machines.

Ulma has also teamed up with Sealed Air to roll-out across the UK the latter’s Cryovac Darfresh vacuum pack technology.
