Fresh foods that have been exposed to oxygen can spoil pretty quickly. In order to keep these products fresh, food packaging facilities use industrial vacuum pumps for vacuum sealing and oxygen evacuation. Airtech Vacuum Incorporated provides food packaging and/or food preservation vacuum solutions can be employed to help meats and other foods retain their color and shape after packaging.

About The Food Packaging (Food Preservation) Industry

Food packaging is basically packaging for food. It provides tampering resistance and protection against biological, chemical, and physical elements that could cause it to spoil. The common types of food packaging include wrappers, boxes, flexible packaging, cartons/coated paper, cans, bags, trays, and aseptic processing. Bagged salads, cans of tomato soup, frozen pizzas, apples, rice, potato chips, meat, and fish are some of the examples of foods that are packaged and preserved daily.

Next, the practice of food preservation has empirically existed since the beginning of mankind. Fermentation, curing, and drying are some of the practical methods that we use to work with raw materials such as fish, meat, or milk, and extend their shelf lives. Today, consumers demand more than just safety. They also demand that foods are tastier and more nutritious. In addition, active food packaging practices have experienced a tremendous boost forward in recent decades.
