The product category:
Fruits and vegetables contain vitamins and minerals essential in a healthy body. After they are harvested, fruits and vegetables live on and have a limited shelf life. Kapelis Packaging offers a wide range of shelf life extension solutions one may choose from for an optimal package.
Types of Machines used:
Depending on your product and its requirements, we at Kapelis Packaging will help you choose the most effective packaging machine to satisfy your needs. For fruits and vegetables possible solutions could be a Horizontal Flow Pack or Vertical Flow Pack machine, Thermoforming, Shrinking, Tray-sealer, a vacuum chamber and possibly a dosing unit, each with their own specialized technology for extending the life duration of each fruit or vegetable.
Package type used:
The packaging of the specific category mostly uses various types of films, bags (sachet, vacuum, doypack-type, thermo-sealing, gusset bags, etc), shrink films and trays with the relevant films.
Unless a fresh produce package needs MAP (for example for fresh cut fruits), since agricultural products continue to breathe, a permeable pack is necessary. Kapelis packaging offers a range of such films that allow the creation of balanced internal “atmosphere”. Furthermore, simple or specialized pads (such as cushion, Ethylene absorbent or Antibacterial) extend significantly the shelf life in a wide range of agricultural products.
