Carefully selecting packaging which suits the properties of the product is one of the most important focus areas for company management. Our technical service is constantly on hand throughout the day in order to allow all packaging processes to run as efficiently as possible, so that high-quality packaging can be produced.
Through the years, Compaxo has amassed a great deal of information and practical knowledge in relation to everything to do with optimum preservation (shelf life) and presentation. No wonder then that Compaxo has a wide range of packaging in circulation. As well as packaging a number of its products under its own label, Compaxo is also a major player in the branch in terms of producing meat products under the client's label. A considerable amount of the processing, packaging and distribution of Compaxo's meat products takes place under this private label. The collaboration with the clients which is necessary for this includes everything from design to finished packaging format. With the aid of our suppliers, there is an almost unlimited choice in terms of design and print when it comes to purchase under private label. The employees in our sales department can advise you in this and help you with orders. Generally, our products are trayseal packed via the following packaging technique:
Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP): products in this type of packaging are packaged under protective atmosphere by means of a natural preserving gas, which has a bacteria-inhibiting effect, and ensures that the products are presented more nicely in terms of color. This protective atmosphere is not unhealthy. The gases which are injected are all gases which naturally occur in the atmosphere, and are simply added in a composition with different proportions. MAP’s greatest added value is that it has a high presentation value. The upper film is pulled tight over the bottom layer of the packaging, allowing more space for printing or labeling, and the visual aspects of the packaging will not deform as quickly. This increases the communication potential of the packaging. Finally, when opening MAP which has been used to package sliced meat products, the slices are more easily removed from one another than in the case of vacuum-packaging.
Trayseal- packaging at Compaxo Fijne Vleeswaren B.V.
By means of tray seal packaging, the product is held together by a preformed plastic tray or shell-shaped bottom, and the top is hermetically sealed by means of a top film. The sealed part which contains the product is sealed via Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) technology.
We are also able to place a lid on top of the foil, which can be covered with double-sided labeling, completely according to the wishes of the client. Our sales department can explain these options and advise you further in this matter. The product's convenience is, moreover, characterized by the lid, on account of which the consumer can reclose the packaging at any time. In addition, this packaging is user-friendly, as it allows the consumer to place the tray on the table ready-to-use, setting the scene for the meal. The tray is available in various shapes. For example, for the filet americain we offer a bowl with a separate bowl for the onions. This makes it perfect for products in snack format or creamy, spreadable products such as filet americain.
