The product category:
This category covers nuts and seeds such as almonds, pecans, pistachios, walnuts, and Brazil nuts, macadamia, cashews, and peanuts, to only name a few. They may be shelled; raw or roasted; salted, spiced, or unseasoned. In general, the more processing and packaging a nut has been subjected to, the higher the price will be.
Types of Machines used:
The nut & seed industry mostly uses vertical machines, doypack machines, or tray-sealers. Vacuum packaging is another excellent way to package and store your product. Other machines will include heat-sealers and dosage systems.
Package type used:
The packaging of the specific category is mostly done using pillow, flat-bottomed, brick or doypack-type bags. Trays or cups are also a very good option, either in color or transparent, while vacuum bags can safely pack your product. The package type you will chose will depend on the end-result and the intended shelf-life.
