Processed meat

Consumers spend less time cooking at home. This has resulted in an increasing demand for more prepared foods and processed meats. Meeting consumer demands for pack convenience such as easy opening and reclosability is key for successful processed meat products. At the same time, offering products in packaging which provides an image of high freshness, healthy content and superior quality means gaining the possibility to tap the premium end of the market. Different types of processed meats require packs with different levels of barrier protection to preserve your desired taste and aromas over a long shelf life. For example, cooked hams usually need a higher barrier protection grade. Incorporating the right combination of multi-layer barrier materials effectively protects processed meats that would otherwise be spoiled, change colour and generate undesirable flavours and odours.
