Resource-saving and sustainable packaging solutions for fresh products

Today more than ever, sustainable and resource-saving solutions for packing fresh fruit and vegetables in film have to be tailored to the individual needs of the market. Requirements regarding product protection, shelf-life or hygiene, among other considerations, can vary from country to country.

Hugo Beck offers an extensive range of film packaging machines for poly bag and shrink packaging applicationss, as well as flowpack packaging solutions for a wide variety of fruit and vegetables.

Using the latest extremely thin and lightweight packaging and shrink films, we are pleased to demonstrate packaging options which responsibly keep sustainability in mind, ensuring minimal film use in the packaging of fresh products. This means that huge material savings per packaging unit can be achieved in comparison with the film types usually processed in the sector.

For example, PVC-free polyolefin fine shrink films ae used in combination with Hugo Beck’s form fill and seal machines. This film/machine combination allows for savings of up to 70% in the film volumes used per pack!

As an alternative to poly bag and shrink packaging, flowpack packaging is often used in the fresh food sector. Here too, a complete range of films types and qualities are processed, ensuring excellent stability and appearance of the product packaging.
