Reducing plastic packaging and improving outputs in the meat, fish and seafood sector

Updated: Aug 2, 2021

From source to plate, PA’s revolutionary SkinPac range are the fastest and most energy efficient machines on the market and help keep fish products fresh and protected with outstanding product presentation offering an attractive environmentally friendly packaging solution.

The SkinPac system of sealing uses a highly transparent barrier film that wraps tightly around the product like a second skin and forms a seal with the bottom of the tray.

This pack format offers high visibility vacuum packs without the need to add gas to the pack. SkinPAC can be used to achieve extended shelf life or to enhance the taste or colour of the product.

It can also result in plastic packaging reduction with the use of a shallower tray than would otherwise be possible or a flat board.

Vacuum Skin Packaging in a preformed tray is the ideal solution for presenting fish and seafood, fresh or frozen, to the consumer.

A top film is sealed over the entirety of the interior surface of a preformed tray holding the product in place on the bottom of the tray. The smooth tight wrinkle free skin is sealed to the edge of the product providing optimum shelf life and great visuality.

Benefits of SkinPac include:

  • Extended shelf life

  • Enhanced taste & colour of the product

  • Easy to display

  • Protect delicate product from damage

  • Perfect for all irregular shapes and sizes

  • Improved product appearance

  • High product visibility
