Case-ready packaging

Developed to maintain the fresh red color of raw beef in a vacuum pack and extend shelf life, FreshCase materials are available for different formats including forming and non-forming films, vacuum skin packaging, trays and ground beef chubs. The see-thru, leak-proof packages are easy to open, freezer-ready and can be stored in the refrigerator, ready-to-cook, until the Use-By date. The hermetic packaging offers a shelf life of more than 30 days for whole muscle beef and extends typical retail display life up to 28 days compared to three to five days for tray overwraps. According to the co., FreshCase vacuum packages use up to 75 percent less packaging material than modified-atmosphere packaging. By eliminating MAP gases, FreshCase packaging can nearly double the amount of meat transported per truck.
