Vacuum packaging is a method of packaging that removes air from the package prior to sealing. This technique involves placing items in a plastic film package, extracting air from inside, and sealing the package. The intent of vacuum packaging is to extend the shelf life of foods and, with flexible package forms, to reduce the volume of the contents and package.
Vacuum packaging is commonly used for preserving a wide range of food items such as meats, fish, dairy products, and dried foods, as the absence of oxygen inhibits the growth of aerobic bacteria or fungi, and prevents the evaporation of volatile components. It is also frequently used to store dry foods over a long period of time, such as cereals, nuts, cured meats, cheese, smoked fish, coffee, and potato chips. Non-food items may also be vacuum-packed to reduce the volume of the package.
When employing vacuum packaging, consideration must be given to the type of product, the desired shelf life, and the quality aspects to ensure that an optimal packaging solution is achieved.
