FOOD PACKAGING EQUIPMENT CASE STUDIES

  • Total Cost Of Ownership Delivers Best Analysis For Capital Packaging Equipment Purchasing
    Total Cost Of Ownership Delivers Best Analysis For Capital Packaging Equipment Purchasing

    When it comes to purchasing new equipment for a packaging line, many companies first seek to minimize capital costs. Managers are motivated to get the best bang for the buck, and low price is easier to justify than the overall quality of an equipment solution.  In fact, this “bargain” machinery may very quickly increase their company’s production costs.

     

  • Improving Shelf Life With Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP)
    Improving Shelf Life With Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP)

    Tulip, one of Denmark’s leading producers of processed food for the domestic and export market, produces around 90 tons of sausages each day. A large proportion of these – about 60 tons a day – is packaged under a modified atmosphere of carbon dioxide and nitrogen to keep the product fresh and improve its shelf life. This case study shows how the company improved its efficiency by installing a Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) system.

  • On-Line Gas Analyzer Improves Shelf Life For Meat Processing Company
    On-Line Gas Analyzer Improves Shelf Life For Meat Processing Company

    Bye-bye manual testing: Replaced by new on-line gas analyzer. This case study examines how a meat processing company made the switch from manually and randomly testing of its packages five times each day to an on-line headspace analyzer for its Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) products.

  • Seafood Company Increases Quality With Package Integrity Testing Technology
    Seafood Company Increases Quality With Package Integrity Testing Technology

    In 2004, Mariscos Linamar, a Spanish seafood company, began to investigate the innovative idea of packaging a proportion of its product in a modified atmosphere, with the aim to extend the product shelf life and improve its appearance. Years of research followed. After extensive research and trials, the optimal gas mixture, comprising oxygen and carbon dioxide blended in a ratio that depends on the product and the format of the package, had been decided upon as well as the best packaging approach. This case study illustrates the process the company used to implement Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) with thermosealed trays.

  • How Artificial Intelligence Can Help F&B Supply Chain Management
    How Artificial Intelligence Can Help F&B Supply Chain Management

    Supply Chain Management is a constant struggle for food and beverage companies. Consumers want more insights about where their food is coming from, and on top of meeting consumer demands, manufacturers have two additional concerns: first, turning around inventory quickly at competitive prices while maintaining stock and supplier relations. Then, manufacturers must keep a close eye on quality, ensuring all products in the supply chain meet industry and consumer specifications. Obviously, there’s a lot to track in the data-driven supply chain. That’s where Artificial Intelligence (AI) can provide F&B companies with new supply chain insights to stay ahead of the curve.
