Case Study: Seafood Shrinkwrap Packaging Solution

This was one of the more unusual applications for our shrink wrap machinery and material services.

We were approached by a large seafood processor that had two requirements.

  • The first requirement was to wrap products where meat had been removed from the shell and then repacked.
  • The second requirement was to shrink wrap meat on its own in a tray.

Seafood Packaging Machinery Solution

We recommended that this food processing company use our semi-automatic combined L- sealer and shrink tunnel together with Ultra JC shrink film. This combination of wrapping machinery and shrink plastic provided the company with a cost-effective solution to all of their packaging needs. Our shrinkwrap machinery is perfectly suited for packaging seafood products. We provide machines that maintain quality and extend the shelf life of fish, shellfish, and more. This is because shrinkwrap creates a sealed package around products to prevent contamination and degradation that would otherwise occur if food was exposed to air.

Our shrink equipment can be used with a variety of different seafood products because it is adaptable, efficient, and built for end of line seafood packaging operations.

Semi Automatic Shrink Wrap Machines from Kempner

The semi-automatic packaging machine and shrink tunnel allowed the company to ensure their packaging was acceptable before it was mass-produced, cutting down waste and ensuring a consistent standard was upheld with all their packaging.

Ultra JC shrink plastic is ideal for packaging meat and produce products as it is extremely tough and puncture resistant – a feature that makes it very attractive to companies selling fresh products such as meat or fish – and also has very good optics, allowing the product to be displayed effectively.

The result was a high level of output with exceptional quality packs, reflecting the inherent quality of the products themselves.
