Fish Packing Machine – Freshness is the Key to Success

Posted by AMAC

Visit any seafood restaurant along the east or west coast of the U.S. and what’s the first thing you see? Catch of the day. This isn’t some marketing gimmick. Every great seafood connoisseur knows that freshness is the most important thing when selecting seafood.  Americans are finally finding the many health advantages to eating fish: high in protein, high in the coveted Omega-3 fatty acids, and low in the “bad” Omega-6 fats that are often found in red meats. But if the fish isn’t fresh, then consumers will turn their noses up and choose something else. For fishmongers and anyone in the fishing industry, freshness must be the most important factor when choosing a packaging method. Selecting the right fish packing method can be tricky, but when you focus on freshness, a vacuum sealing machine is the obvious choice.

What are Vacuum Sealing Machines?

Vacuum sealing machines are easy to use machines that vacuum pack numerous types of foods and products.  A vacuum sealing machine removes the air from a package prior to sealing it. Then, a person (or through automation) places an item in a bag or film package. The vacuum sealing machine removes the air from inside the bag or film and seals the package. Resulting in a tightly sealed food or product now protected from environmental contaminants. It is one of the simplest yet extremely protective product packaging devices on the market. Furthermore, there are so many advantages and benefits of vacuum sealing based upon the product you are sealing.
