Sliced ​​foods vacuum packed in a bag or on a tray?

Each package has its advantages and disadvantages, and according to each food and format, it will be more appropriate to use one type of packaging or another. We must choose intelligently. Read our recommendations.

Bagged packaging:

All advantages:

- Low cost in the container / consumable, only the bag is required

- Less storage space and reduction in transportation costs

- High brightness of the slices and attractive presentation for the consumer

- Products such as Iberian ham, bagged and high vacuum packaging, improves its organoleptic properties

- A Vacuum packer offers the possibility of providing gas injection inside the bag if you have the installation for GAS (optional)

As disadvantages:

-Handling; It costs more to introduce slices in the bag than to deposit them on a tray

- Crushing of the slices and greater difficulty of handling for the consumer

Our conclusion :

The type of bagged packaging is recommended for most whole, sliced ​​or sliced ​​products. Ham, cured meats and sausages, cheeses or fish among others. Any food for sale, commercialization or export.

Packaging on tray:

All advantages:

- The attractive presence of food

- Comfort in handling

- Easy to consumption for the final customer. They can open the tray and serve directly to the plate or on the table

-In some cases gas is added to the container, and this can improve the presence of certain foods (eg red meat) reducing the loss of color in the product that the effect of the vacuum produces

As disadvantages:

-In this presentation intervene the costs of the tray, the upper film and the gas to be injected

-Environmental negative effects, the packaging in heat sealing generates more waste

Our conclusion :

This type of packaging is recommended for large quantities or sliced ​​formats with high added value. Currently, due to the high demand for this format of food packaging in the market, the costs to pack in this format are very competitive
