Packaging for meat: sausage and poultry

Today European meat producers are facing multiple major challenges on the market: demanding regulatory environment, competitive pressure and consumer concerns for food safety, for healthy food, for its price and for environment protection. We understand the industry and its challenges well and are ready to help you solve them.

Dealing with the strict regulatory environment can be challenging for meat producers. Packaging is one of the key factors here and Marzek FlexiLog takes hygiene regulations as seriously as you do. We ensure your packaging is 100 % BRC compliant.

Make your customers confident in the quality of your product by matching it with the quality of its flexible packaging. Premium quality packaging is also a sure way to demonstrate your product is safe and attractive for the consumer. Customers will also feel less reluctant to pay more for visibly better food.

Optimal material combinations for meat packaging

Storage requirements for meat and poultry (chilled or frozen) influence the available packaging solutions for these products. At Marzek FlexiLog we provide you with packaging with extremely high barrier properties (e.g. for oxygen 1-5 cm3/m2/24h).

The optimal choice for prolonged meat and poultry storage is the laminate based on polyamide or PET and polyethylene with an addition of the EVOH layer.

  • bi-oriented polyamide or PET (good resistance to oxygen and other gases, wide temperature range, the material conserves flavour and taste of highly volatile substances)
  • transparent polyethylene with EVOH (transparent sealing and structural layer, good protection against water vapours, oxygen and other gases)
  • Anti Fog and Easy Open can be added upon customer request.
