Automated Packaging Machines Target Large Scale Production Needs

April 26, 2012

The demand for large scale production of poultry and meat products just keeps on increasing over the years. A lot of food machine manufacturers are getting red alerts about this drastic increase because it would mean another challenge for them on how to competitively increase their productivity rate. We can say that the design of automated packaging machines could greatly help in this kind of situations; however, there are still other mechanisms that food manufacturers should focused on. Safety and sanitation must go alongside with the productivity rate in order to ensure quality in distribution and consumption. Food packaging machines should possess these characteristics in order to establish a competitive standing in the food industry.

In order to cope up with the large scale production needs in the market, food packaging machines manufacturers’ use modified atmosphere packaging solution or MAP in increasing the sustainability of food products. There is a variety of food products that can use the MAP technology which is why it is considered the most established packaging technology in the food industry. Modified atmosphere packaging uses natural atmospheric gases that were modified according to the condition of a specific food product in preserving the quality and further increases the food product’s shelf life. It has also enhanced several characteristics of perishable food products that can’t be done by applying chemical additives. Through the application of modified gases inside the package that is responsible in maintaining the natural or quality condition of food products, growth of microbial organisms and discoloration are prevented. This method greatly contributes to the safety of food products that undergo packaging.  The union of automated packaging machines and modified atmosphere packaging targets the needs of manufacturers in coping up with high productivity rate. The extended shelf life that MAP technology offers also minimizes wastage which also help in solving some of the environmental issues of the world.

 Furthermore, the automation of food packaging machines also addresses sanitation issues encountered by packaging machines before. There is no need for extra manual labor for cleaning the parts of the machines because it can already be programmed to do automatic cleaning and besides wastage is minimized.  Automated packaging machines have provided so many advantages for both manufacturers and consumers that remain undefeated until now. The use of these machines will further reduce cost in packaging, production, and distribution which promotes maximum profits and delivers high quality packaging for safe consumption.
